This Mic Delivers

Mojave Audio's MA-201fet is a solid-state, large-diaphragm condenser mic that shares design cues with its tube-powered stablemate, the MA-200. It's is a studio workhorse you can use on almost anything - from vocals and pianos to electric guitars and drums - to capture warm, full-bodied sound without a hint of shrillness. Spec'd with premium components such as a 3-micron, gold-sputtered capsule, high-quality Jensen audio transformer, mil-spec field-effect transistor, and custom-designed, low-noise resistors, the MA-201fet is a go-to mic you'll reach for session after session. Sweetwater engineers rely on the MA-201fet for consistently superior results - and you can, too.

Superior components and build quality

As with all their mics, Mojave Audio took an uncompromising approach when designing the MA-201fet. From its hand-selected, gold-sputtered 3-micron 1" capsule and high-quality Jensen audio transformer, to its military-spec FET and custom-designed low-noise resistors, the MA-201fet is built to perform. Day after day, year after year. In the studio and onstage. Mojave carefully tests and evaluates each MA-201fet mic before packing it in its protective case, complete with a pro-grade shockmount.

However you use it, the Mojave Audio MA-201fet will become an honored denizen of your mic locker.

Best Mic under a Grand!!!

Wow.... I love this mic. I've used this mic on acoustic guitars, female and male voices, percussion and room micing. It sounds amazing on everything. It's my "go to" mic for every session. Thanks to Sweetwater for recommending this great mic.

The mic that changed my world

I was looking to take my recording quality up a notch and Mike at Sweetwater convinced me to try this mic out. It arrived via FedEX right in the middle of a recording session. We had already finished recording the acoustic guitars and thought we had final takes. I asked the male singer to do a scratch vocal using the Mojave and we were so completely blown away by the smooth transparent sound that we decided to re-record all the acoustic guitar tracks with this mic! I have been fighting with sibilance issues with all the other mics in my locker, but the 201 fet completely resolved these and has completely brought my recording to a new level. Saving up to buy another! Thanks, Mike - your recommendation was spot on. This mic has changed my world!

MA201 fet

You can spend $3000 on a great mic, but it won't be any better than this one, except for maybe the MA200 tube. Truly a modern classic. That's all you really need to say.

The MA-201 fet

I used this mic after talking with Dan at sweetwater for a male vocal session and was seriously blown away at the results. The next mic I purchase will probably be the Mojave Audio MA-200. Thanks again Dan!

Sweetwater Advice

Mike Conyers

The solid-state version of the Mojave MA-200, the MA-201 fet is an extremely versatile piece that should be in everyone's arsenal! Drum overheads, acoustic and electric guitars, vocals, strings, woodwinds: this mic can do it all!

Robby Resnick

A fantastic addition to any mic locker. Great on vocals and accoustic guitar. Mojave Audio just keeps bringing amazing mics to the table!

Michael Grebe

Mojave Audio does it again! This mic is every bit as good and versatile as the MA-200 and would be a great addition, or first microphone for anyone looking to improve their mic locker.

Simon Picazo

I recently used this mic on a live recording of a female jazz singer. Incredibly warm lows and fresh air on the high end combined with that classic FET vibe. This mic is ridiculously fun to use.
