MA-50 Large-Diaphragm Transformless Condenser Microphone
The challenge? Create a transformerless microphone circuit without the inherent problems found in transformerless microphones. Technical Grammy® award winning microphone designer David Royer has created a thoroughly modern microphone that rises to that challenge: the new MA-50. Designed to produce the clarity and realism that Mojave microphones are known for – at an entry level price - the MA-50 out performs well-known transformerless mics costing many times more.
The MA-50 is the perfect microphone for pros and semi-pros alike. Utilizing the same capsule as the MA-200 and MA-201fet, it handles the fastest transients with ease – even up to 140 dB.

...the hype behind this microphone, it's very bright but too high in the spectrum Miktek CV4 - usable Miktek MK300 - usable Mojave MA-50 - unusable - eeewww Mojave MA-201FET - unusable Mojave MA-300 - usable Mojave MA-300FET - usable Neumann TLM49 - usable Neumann TLM103 - unusable - scratchy sound but midrange is very good, would work on a softer voice Neumann...
Have you considered one of Mojave Audios mics? The MA-50 is a TLM-103 killer - for much less $. If you decide to go for a tube, the MA-200 (cardioid only) and MA-300 (multi-pattern, hi=pass filter, pad) are beautiful sounding microphones. All designed by David Royer.
