Drawing inspiration from some of yesterday’s most revered microphones, Technical Grammy® award winning microphone designer David Royer has created a thoroughly modern tube microphone that features an original old-stock 5840 tube, 251-style capsule, and custom designed transformer built by Coast Magnetics. The result is a sweet, airy top end, unmistakable realism in the mids and an accurate yet authoritative bottom end.

The Signature Series has been tirelessly field-tested against microphones often costing $20K or more – universally evoking the same ‘Wow’ response usually reserved for only the most prized vintage mics. With performance, reliability, and quality like this, Mojave’s new Signature Series microphone is a New American Classic.

Ideal Applications:
Vocals and Voice-overs
Acoustic Instruments
Drum Overheads, Drum Rooms
