    I am a big fan of Mojave, owning a matched pair MA100SP. Designed and QA done by David Royer, so they can be trusted to perform as advertised.

    If I had the funds, I would not hesitate to purchase any of their designs. They get top marks from many serious engineers.

    The new colour scheme is a very nice look, imo.

    Dusty from Mojave Audio here.
    Respectfully - Wow!
    You guessed wrong- we do not use the same 797 capsule as Warm in the MA-1000. The MA-1000 is made specifically for Mojave Audio and costs approx. 10x as much as a 797 capsule.
    Perhaps not. We use a custom-made toroidal transformer built to David Royer's specifications by Coast Magnetics here in LA. It's bigger than anything Cinemag makes. We considered the less-expensive Cinemag transformers for our other mics but found the Jensen Transformers we use to be superior.
    Not exactly. All Mojave's - including the MA-1000 - are original designs by David Royer. We don't do clones or knock-offs.
    Not the same thing. Point taken, though. The direct competition for the MA-1000 are the Telefunken USA 251 ($9495.00) and the Bock 251 ($5995.00) At $2995, we think that we are offering the value.

    The link will take you to a video of a visit to Mojave Audio by Sweetwater. Lots of good company and product info, including watching David Royer personally doing the final QA checks he performs on each mic they push out the door.

    Not trying to inflame the argument,but having seen the constant and rapid manufacturing improvements coming from China in the last 20 years of electronics, I find it hard to keep this concept alive. I wish North America had the electronics manufacturing capabilities China has today, but we just don't.
