Mojave MA-1000 Flagship high-end studio microphone.

Mojave successfully established a highly regarded, critically acclaimed brand but was looking to create something new. Famous audio engineer David Royer designed a new circuit for a superior high-performance studio microphone, but Mojave needed an equally compelling mechanical design to match. Box Build was able to help.

Industrial Design

Drawing on a long history and expertise in studio microphone design, Box Build created a microphone design for Mojave that was both classic and fresh. We carefully balanced the technical requirements and aesthetic details to ensure that the MA-1000 would be attractive without compromising performance.


Mechanical Engineering

After receiving feedback from the client on our industrial design concepts, Box Build utilized the latest in computer aided drafting technology to create comprehensive documentation of all mechanical parts that will guide manufacturing activities.


Electrical Layout and Component Sourcing

Box Build transformed the electrical schematic provided by David Royer into manufacturing documentation. We developed a complete bill of materials, created an electrical layout, and sourced all the necessary components. We made prototype samples for the client's approval. Once samples were approved, all the information was formalized into a complete set of Gerber files for mass manufacturing.


Production Tooling and Complete Box Build Production

Box Build produces the MA-1000 to Mojave's exacting specifications. Manufacturing high-end studio microphones requires both technical and creative know-how, just like the music these microphones capture. We use a variety of highly-specialized processes, including precision laser cutting, to make sure each part in the microphone is perfect. The final result is an exceptional microphone that has quickly become a go-to for many industry heavy weights and recording enthusiasts, while becoming the flagship for Mojave's new brand expansion.
