Burbank, CA�Mojave Audio, a company founded by David Royer (known for his work with ribbon microphones) is pleased to announce the MA-1000 Large-diaphragm Multi-pattern Tube Condenser Microphone, the first model in the company�s new Signature Series line of products. Designed by Technical Grammy award winning microphone designer David Royer, the MA-1000 features an original new old-stock 5840 tube, a 251-style capsule, and a custom-designed transformer built by Coast Magnetics. Among its notable attributes, the MA-1000 includes a remotely controlled, continuously variable polar pattern selector that is located on microphone�s power supply.

The MA-1000 also offers a switchable 15dB pad that facilitates high SPL recordings with no microphone distortion or preamplifier overload. This is particularly useful for close miking electric guitars. Similarly, the microphone provides a switchable low frequency roll-off designed to reduce the excess low end created by proximity effect, the bass buildup commonly experienced during close miking of vocals and acoustic instruments. The LF roll-off capability is also useful when miking electric guitars where less low end buildup is desired. With world-class components, the new MA-1000 delivers a sweet, airy top end, �you-are-there� realism in the mids, and an accurate yet authoritative bottom end.

Dusty Wakeman, President of Mojave Audio, commented on the company�s new MA-1000 Large-diaphragm Multi-pattern Tube Condenser Microphone, �The MA-1000 is a versatile, high-end microphone designed specifically to address the most challenging studio recording applications. The mic�s switchable 15dB pad enables one to address of variety of high SPL challenges while the low frequency roll-off capability makes it a tremendous microphone for both vocal and voiceover projects. Cosmetically, as the first offering in Mojave Audio�s new Signature Series product line, this mic represents a step forward compared to Mojave�s traditional �working class� designs. I have every confidence this microphone will be well-received by engineers and artists from a wide range of musical disciplines.�

The Mojave Audio MA-1000 carries an MSRP of $2,995.00 and will become available Q4, 2015. The microphone ships with an innovative new shock mount design that was created by and licensed from sibling company Royer Labs.
