New cardioid condenser builds upon success of company's MA-201fet

Burbank, CA . Mojave Audio, a company founded by David Royer (known for his
work with ribbon microphones) is pleased to announce the introduction of the
Mojave Audio MA-301fet Condenser Microphone. Based upon the popular
MA-201fet designed by David Royer, the new MA-301fet adds features that
industry professionals have asked for, including a 3-position pickup pattern
selector, a 15 dB pad, and a switchable bass roll-off. This exceptional new
microphone is ideal for numerous applications, among them: vocals, voice
over and broadcast, electric guitar, piano, acoustic instruments, both drum
overheads and room mics (drum ambience), and high SPL sources such as kick
drums and bass guitar amps.

The new MA-301fet provides warm, full-bodied reproductions of vocals and
instruments without the shrillness and high frequency artifacts so often
encountered with modern condenser microphones. The microphone's warm,
military grade FET circuitry, superb Jensen transformer, and custom designed
low-noise resistors combine to deliver an ultra clean signal path with low
noise and high quality performance reminiscent of some of the best-loved
classic condenser microphones. As a solid state, large diaphragm condenser
microphone with a hand selected, 3-micron thick, 1-inch (diameter) gold
sputtered capsule, the new MA-301fet is a truly versatile recording tool.

With its multi-pattern capabilities- Cardioid, Omnidiectional, and
Figure-eight (Bi-directional)-Mojave Audio's new MA-301fet  Condenser
Microphone adds greater flexibility for recording a multitude of
instruments, voices, and other sound sources.  These capabilities are
augmented still further with the incorporation of a switchable 15 dB pad and
switchable bass roll-off. Now, engineers have greater control over not just
the microphone's polar pattern, but they can attenuate loud sources for
optimum pickup level and compensate for low frequency 'boom' if necessary.
Dusty Wakeman, Mojave Audio's president, commented on the company's new
offering, "The new MA-301fet draws upon the success of our MA-201fet and
adds a number of features that many recording engineers have been asking
for. With the addition of multi-pattern capability as well as the switchable
15 dB pad and switchable bass roll-off, this new microphone is an incredibly
versatile recording tool that, I'm confident, will find a home in a wide
range of environments."

With a MSRP of $895, the Mojave Audio MA-301fet is expected to be available
in February 2012.
