Oktava MK-319 : Bubbagump's user review
cardoide static large diaphragm.
a low cut and attenuation.
cheap construction and finishing.
Indeed, the case echoes it is better to isolate it.
It does not cash level. He did not have much brilliance (drop from 15K).
and yet it is not bad.
On the vote, a slight EQ gives the desired presence and arrival he is doing rather better than his natural grace AT4050. On the same voice, a venerable (but may be tired) did not satsfation UM57.
OH, it gives a good perception of space, we feel the cymbals move is alive.
This is certainly not a stupid contest, but frankly for the price it is very valid. I would not take a Troisème either.
