Special Savings with Mojave and Daking Mic-Pre Bundles!

Pro Recordings, Promo Price

For over two decades, Mojave and Daking have been staples in pro recording studios. Now is your chance to add their classic sound to your studio for a special price. Arguably the two most important parts of your signal chain, your microphone and preamp will determine the quality of your recordings. With Mojave and Daking, you’re sure to get quality results every time! Featuring the MA-301fet and Mic Pre Onethis bundle gives you great sound in a portable package.

MA-50: Mojave Quality for Everyone!

With the MA-50, David Royer sought to bring pack Mojave quality, clarity and realism in an affordable package. The award-winning microphone designer did just that by pairing the capsule from the MA-201fet with a transformerless circuit. The result? An impressive large diaphragm condenser that sounds great on almost any source. The fast transient response and high SPL handling make it great for drum overheads or loud guitars. The natural frequency response makes it a natural choice for vocals, voiceover, and acoustic instruments. If you’re looking for a quality studio workhorse, the MA-50 will prove to be the perfect choice for any budget. Thanks to the inclusion of a travel case and shock mount, you can bring the Mojave sound to any session!

MA-50 in one take

  • Large diaphragm 1″ gold sputtered 3-micron capsule
  • Fixed cardioid polar pattern
  • Transformerless circuit design
  • Ultra low noise
  • High SPL handling
  • Fast transient response
  • Professional shock mount and hardshell case

Meet the MA-301fet

The Mojave MA-301fet builds on the success of the MA-201fet by adding two additional polar patterns. This greatly increases the capabilities of the MA-301fet without sacrificing the stellar Cardioid performance of its predecessor. Flip the switch to the Omni mode to get a versatile room mic. Switch to the Figure-8 pattern to record a duet with one mic, or experiment with Mid/Side recording. In addition to these new pickup patterns, Mojave have also included a 15dB pad. This will allow you to record incredibly loud sources without running the risk of distorting your signal. Finally, a switchable low-cut filter allows you to gently reduce low-frequency build up. This is particularly useful for close-miked sources where the proximity effect can exaggerate low frequencies.

Great Sound on Any Source

Known for their realism and clarity, Mojave microphones sound great on almost any source. The MA-301fet is no different. Get crisp vocals, big drums, and detailed acoustic recordings all from the same mic. A true studio workhorse, the MA-301 is a useful addition to any mic locker. What’s more, you can safely bring it to remote sessions thanks to the included hardshell case and professional shockmount.

Features:

  • Multi-pattern: Cardioid, Omnidirectional, Figure-eight (Bi-directional)
  • Switchable 15dB pad
  • Switchable Bass Roll-off
  • Hand-selected 3-micron 1-in capsule
  • Jensen audio transformer
  • Military-grade FET
  • Custom designed low-noise resistors
  • Ultra clean signal path

Daking Mic Pre One – Big Features, Small Size

Building on the success of their larger studio preamps and EQs, Daking is proud to introduce the Mic Pre OneFeaturing 70dB of gain, a Jensen input transformer, and discrete Class A circuitry, the Mic Pre One puts pure sound in a small package. A 20dB pad, polarity switch, DI input, and variable low-cut filter makes this a workhorse for numerous situations. Thanks to its small size and sturdy aluminum enclosure, you can bring great sound wherever you go. Whether on stage, in the studio, or on location, this preamp strikes the perfect balance between build quality and performance. Factor in the feature set and affordable price, and this portable preamp is a winner!
