    MA-100SP Condenser Microphones

    MA-100.jpg
    The MA-100SP is a matched pair of MA-100 small-diaphragm, vacuum tube condenser microphones with interchangeable cardioid and omnidirectional capsules and a dual power supply.

    Packaged in a single carrying case, the MA-100SP provides professional recording engineers with a convenient, easy to set up system for stereo recording applications.
    From a linage of successful microphone designs by David Royer, the MA-100SP's cathode follower circuitry provides ample headroom for high SPL applications such as drums and guitar amplifiers. It also excels at the more common applications for small diaphragm, vacuum tube condenser microphones such as acoustic instruments, cymbals, stereo pairs and pianos.
    Featuring hand selected, 3-micron cardioid and omni capsules, high quality Jensen audio transformers and military-grade JAN 5840 vacuum tubes, the MA-100SP performs at a level reminiscent of some of the best loved classic small-diaphragm tube condenser microphones. The MA-100SP's power supply can be set for either 110-120 VAC or 220-240 VAC via an external switch. The complete MA-100SP system is burned in for 24 hours, carefully tested and evaluated, then packaged in a protective carrying case.
    Small Diaphragm - Big Sound!
    Why choose a small diaphragm microphone? Because small diaphragm microphones offer some distinct advantages over their larger brethren:

    • More consistent polar pattern
    • Better transient response
    • Ease of placement
    Why choose an MA-100SP?

    • Extended low-frequency response
    • High SPL handling capability - try putting your large-diaphragm mic on a snare drum!

    Yeah, it does!

    Hey, instead of the mix concept competition. would you consider a most pathetic, long-winded, plea as to why you are so desperate to have and need these?.............Oh, I figured not.

    Well, it was worth a try anyway!

    These are great mics. If you'll remember, Jeremy Cucco put one of these in as the "mystery mic" in the ribbon shootout we did a while ago. The connection with David Royer inspired him to put it in. But it had a very smooth top end and was not out of place in the shootout.

    I'm finally going to have time to get involved. These look great for my typical recording situations as well.

    How about a Nashville Song writing contest to honor Remy. I've got a head start already!!!

    Actually I like this idea much more than a terribly boring mix contest. Very cool seeing your lyrical abilities come to life Phil!

    Er, being a jazz musician I'd have to say that a Nashville Song Writing contest wouldn't be my strong suit. Sorry Phil!

    What might be more fair would be a combination of taking some already recorded tracks and complimenting them with additional new recorded material (there's your shot of making it Nashville). Then, taking all of that and creating a final mix.

    What do you think?

    Lyrics should probably be in English, no? ...
    Members who are no English native speakers are... in den Arsch gekniffen.

    Kinda hard to compete with the natives...
    :-(

    Better to hand out a set of tracks to mix.
    Good Genre composing like Nashville style is not given to everybody.

    Don't worry! If lyrics are involved in the equation then you definitely have a leg up on me. I'm a lousy vocalist.
