Customer Review

purchased a MA200 a couple of weeks back (Pro Audio Solutions in nashville), and just wanted to let you guys know how much I dig this microphone. I've used or owned just about every type of studio mic over the years, from old classics to new boutique companies and custom modded models. the MA200 hasn't just won my shootouts... the others haven't come close. Paired with a Focusrite 428 mic pre, it's deadly.
I'm sure this mic will be on every session I do.
I'll be purchasing another soon. Can't wait to try out the small guy too.
I'll send you the cd results... my new cd should be out in September.
thanks for a truly great product. My ears appreciate it.

The MA-100 is a small diaphragm, vacuum tube condenser microphone with interchangeable cardioid and omnidirectional capsules. The latest in a lineage of successful microphone designs by David Royer, the MA-100's 'cathode follower' design allows use on high SPL instruments such as drums and guitar amplifiers, as well as the more common applications of a small diaphragm, vacuum tube condenser microphone, such as acoustic instruments, cymbals, stereo pairs and pianos.

Featuring hand selected 3 micron capsules, high quality Jensen audio transformers and military-grade JAN 5840 vacuum tubes, the MA-100 performs at a level reminiscent of some of the best loved classic small diaphragm tube condenser microphones. The MA-100 power supply can be set for either 115v or 230v via an external switch. Each MA-100 microphone, power supply and cable set is burned in for 24 hours, carefully tested and evaluated, then packaged in its protective case.

  • More consistent polar pattern
  • Better transient response
  • Ease of placement
