Oktava MK-319
The Oktava MK 319 is a large diaphragm condenser microphone, designed for use in the recording studio. While it is designed for studio use, it will also work in the live setting, as it is cheap enough that you don't have to worry a great deal about it breaking if you are looking for a reliable condenser microphone to record live shows. It is a well built, sturdy microphone that will last a good amount of time if treated right. The shock mount for the Oktava MK 319 usually comes separately, but is sometimes sold together with the mic.


I've been using the Oktava MK 319 for about a year and have found it to be a good, cheap option for a large diaphragm condenser mic. I have used this microphone for a wide array of recording applications, including for male and female lead vocals, as well as back up vocals, acoustic guitar, trumpet, saxophone, and a variety of other things. It is usually the mic that I would use if I am out of top end condenser microphones but need another one for another instrument. The sound quality of the Oktava MK 319 is pretty full sounding, which is what makes it a good vocal mic. However, it isn't the richest sounding microphone and wouldn't recommend it for recording professionals unless you have no other choice. The price of the Oktava MK 319 is what makes it such a nice option. You can get this good sounding condenser mic for an extremely reasonable price, making it perfect for home studio owners. While it won't ever match the sound of a Neumann or another top end condenser mic, it is a nice substitute for those who cannot afford a top tier mic. I would recommend the Oktava MK 319 to home studio owners looking for a cheap condenser microphone to add to their arsenal.

Oktava MK-319
Russian Micro static cardio with att -10 dB and high pass
warm and soft, lacks a bit of prsence and wealth


The MK 319 is unfortunately not the best microclimate of the brand, the 219 and 319 microphones are good enough to sound warm and Retailer despite a body of the microphone noise limit of the acceptable! ! ds that one touches the microphone, the body it produces an almost harmonic, as it sounds hollow and pressures trs rsonnances of the body even give an impression of the microphone a little search and dstabilisante stick when it comes to micro !!!!!
Briefly, the quality of mtal uses is the cause of this large dfault trs (Russia forces)
elastic suspension is the first Bond Remde such misfortune, the next will probably be a slight cut down (against the infra), the troisme finally to surround the body of a piece of micro rubber tighten all around the microphone, it absorbs much of the energy produced by the body into rsonnance microphone (shortcut time rsonnace mdium the bottom).

My opinion would be a pale copy of what marked the druid.
I refer you to an opinion that I share completely.

It's a microphone that I really appreciate it a really strong character. Very mild (such as MK012), which is an important criterion for me.

For the first micro? I do not know if I really advise ... In this price range is more than some because it's either that or a Chinese. The choice is quickly made for me.
If we can put a little more, Rode made products more "versatile" (but with less character)

It is best to listen, really.
