    MJE Advanced Capsule Design -


    Let’s start at the beginning – the capsule housing. Take a close look at many SDC mics on the market. You’ll find the diaphragm is often set back from the front of the mic (which often has a high frequency boost grating). This setback (and grating) creates a chamber that imparts coloration and degrades transient response.

    The MJE-384 DirectView capsule housing places the diaphragm right at the front edge of the mic to eliminate the diaphragm set back coloration and transient response degradation heard in many SDC mics.

    Btw, this is Michael Joly writing. Please read on to learn why the MJE-384 is a great sounding, great value matched pair of SDC mics. Then either buy a set for yourself or send me your questions.

    Next, the MJE-384 features my new capsule backplate tuning. This design provides exceptionally flat and extended frequency response free from sibilance, top end peakiness and harshness. Acoustic guitar harmonics and cymbals will sparkle – but without the excessive brightness often heard in SDC mics.

    Pair Matching Details

    Your new MJE-384 SDC mics will be a true matched pair – all diaphragms are individually tested with a frequency analyzer and selected for ideal resonant frequency. Complete capsules are tuned to an exact capacitance specification. This attention to detail ensures wide, flat frequency response in each capsule plus perfect frequency response and level-match between both capsules as well. Ask around - this level of design refinement and quality control is just not found outside of expensive, high end SDC mics - until now.

    MJE Premium Electronics

    With over 9000 orders shipped, my MJE Premium Electronics package is dialed-in, fine-tuned and field-proven. Tight extended bass, deep midrange resolution and a smooth top end are yours with the MJE-384.
