Phenomenal Studio Microphone

An instant legend! Grab the MA-300, put it up on the first vocalist or instrument you see, and prepare to be amazed. This large-diaphragm tube condenser microphone performs with a sweet, warm character that's reminiscent of the most famous German microphones of all time. Drawn from the same design of Mojave Audio's renowned MA-200, the MA-300 adds multiple polar patterns to increase the versatility of this in-demand microphone. Now, you can get that rich flavor you want from a primary microphone, while tailoring it to your specific application. In fact, the MA-300's polar patterns are continuously variable from omnidirectional to figure-8, so you'll be able to capture a wide range of instruments and sources. The MA-300 also features a -15dB pad and a highpass filter to add to its versatility in the studio.

Fantastic Mic

I've been recording for years but never had a solid mic I could throw on nearly anything. I was looking for a variable pattern mic that didn't have the cheap top end I'm so tired of mixing around. This mic was on the list with several others (Atlantis, Advanced Audio's 47 clone, etc). I'm glad I chose this one. It sounds fantastic. The top end is dreamy and not that harsh sound you get from cheaper mics. I've used this on vocals, drums, upright bass, guitar cabs, piano, and sax and it really does the trick. It's nice not having to EQ as much when I start mixing.

Smoothness

Sounds amazing on vocals, acoustic guitar and for drum M/S in figure 8. Full, rich, warm, not overly hyped. Makes a great alternative to the AKG C414 XLII which tends to be brighter and crispier on the high side. Extremely well built and cased.

Mojave Ma-300

I had been going back and forth with my awesome sales man Steve C. about a tube mic for the studio and the final 2 were the Mojave and the Telefunken 47. And for several reasons we settled on the Mojave, especially after it was recommended to me by Sylvia Massey when we were there for Gearfest. From the get-go after this mic warmed up it was amazing. I used it on a folksy /acoustic session and I put it on vox, acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, harmonica and a shaker. WOW! Its warm and beautiful! It made the session mixable in about an hour. This mic is amazing. You need to have this versatile gem in your box of mics!

Unbelievable Mic.

Amazing quality gear...and not just for this price. If it was double the price it would still be more than worth it. Extremely happy! I was initial gong to get the ma200, but Derek Senestraro, my go to guy at Sweetwater, recommended I spend a few more dollars and get this one for the versatility of the switchable polar patterns. Very glad I did! SATISFIED.

No Better Mic at this Price point

This is a must have if you record vocals. Stunning clarity. Vocal tracks cut right through the mix. It is as good if not better than the TLM-49 but adds the continuously variable polar patterns to cinch the deal. You can open up the pattern between cardioid and figure 8 to get this added top end from that extra vocal getting picked up as it passes around the backside of the mic. I'm convinced that no mic currently in production can best it on vocals and it also shines on acoustic instruments. David Royer is one hell of mic designer.
