Mojave Audio was recognized for their outstanding Technical Excellence and Creativity during the 38th Annual NAMM TEC Experience, held last Thursday night at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. Mojave’s MA-37 captured a TEC Award in the category of Microphones-Recording.

Started in 1985 by MIX Magazine, the TEC Awards are widely regarded as the highest honor dedicated to the pro audio and sound recording industry, recognizing outstanding performance by the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and multimedia.

Mojave’s MA-37, winner of the Microphone-Recording category, is a modern take on the iconic Sony C-37a – a workhorse from the Golden Age of Hollywood recording. The MA-37 is a high headroom large-diaphragm tube condenser that updates the original design with modern components and workmanship for a rich, natural sound that imparts a smooth musicality on any instrument or voice. As with all Mojave Audio microphones, the MA-37 is hand-built with the same detailed craftsmanship that have made them essential in studios around the world.  

"This is Mojave’s fourth TEC Award nomination and we are honored to have been recognized this year by NAMM for the MA-37," commented Dusty Wakeman, President of Mojave. "We’re privileged to work alongside the creative genius David Royer and we’d like to thank our families and loyal customers for their continued support.”
