The Mojave Audio MA-200 is a large diaphragm tube condenser microphone.  It comes with its own power supply and has a special cable and connection on the end of it to send it to this power supply.  It also comes with a hard shell case and a shock mount specially designed for this mic. 


OVERALL OPINION

The Mojave Audio MA-200 tube condenser microphone is a pretty good sounding microphone overall.  It has a warm and full bodied sound to it that makes it a good microphone for vocals as well as for acoustic piano, drum overheads and just about any other application you'd want to use a large diaphragm tube condenser mic.  However, for the price I was expecting a little bit more from the tone quality of this microphone.  Don't get me wrong, it definitely is a good sounding microphone overall, but for that price of about a thousand USD, I was expecting a better sounding microphone.  When you consider the other microphones you can get for this price, the Mojave Audio MA-200 doesn't seem as appealing anymore.  This day and age microphones are being made much cheaper than ever before and it seems to me while this is a good sounding microphone, for the price I could find others that sound comparable or better for a cheaper price.  For the same price I would much rather have a Neumann TLM 103 because it has a superior sound quality even though it isn't a tube condenser mic.  If you are looking for a tube condenser microphone I would definitely recommend checking out the Mojave Audio MA-200, but I would also strongly recommend shopping around to see what microphone will work best for your situation and budget.  Overall though, the Mojave Audio MA-200 is a nice sounding microphone for a somewhat reasonable price.
