Condenser microphone Cardioid large capsule, mounted on the body / preamp to the famous MK-012 and with a-10dB pad.

New catalog Oktava, mine was manufactured in November 2004.

Fine finish, well up from the MK-012-01, the preamp has been slightly changed, extended to 1 cm, the catch is now golden and machining seems better calibrated.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for one month, and if I was immediately attracted, the more time passes, the more I appreciate it.

It has a sound that is sweet and true to the source, in a word, I find it very musical.

I use it in home studio to record my guitar or my voice, and I must say that from the Behringer B1, I am a real revolution!

Compared to B1, it has a much better response off-axis, a lower midrange, treble much richer much less aggressive but present (unlike its little brother MK-101 microphones and other brand), and much better cash in short another world!

All for 200 Euros on the net, I could even choose the copy that I wanted in terms of its real curve!

That, I think very soon buy a second for the pair, plus a set of MK-012 capsules that can screw it into the bargain! In short I am crazy!

Only precaution before diving, try to get the seller, the image of the curve as the Oktava microphone can be very different from one model to another.
