The MA-201fetVG is a large diaphragm, phantom-powered, solid-state condenser microphone with a fixed cardioid pattern. With its roots in a lineage of microphone designs by David Royer, the MA-201fetVG gives warm, full-bodied reproductions of vocals and instruments, with none of the shrillness and high frequency distortion artifacts that are often encountered with modern condenser microphones.
Utilizing a 3-micron, single-sided, gold-sputtered capsule, high-quality Jensen audio transformer, military-grade FET and custom designed low-noise resistors, the MA-201fetVG performs at a level reminiscent of some of the best loved classic condenser microphones. Each MA-201fetVG microphone is carefully tested and evaluated, then packaged in its protective case with a professional grade shockmount.
