Oktava MK012 - good price and great mics

Total rating

Very pleased with these great mics, a very reasonable price and an excellent sound. I have some more expensive mics but think that these sound just as good. I haven't tried them yet on a very wide range of sound sources but I have been using them as drum overheads and for that they sound really good. The clips are a bit strange, quite hard to slide the mics in -I was a little afraid of scratching the mics badly but I think i will jsut leave the mics in the clips to avoid putting them in and out all the time. I like these so much I am going to save up for a couple more.

Astonishing microphones for the price

Total rating

More often than not, I've bought microphones, only to be disappointed. I'm primarily an acoustic guitarist, and trying to equate the sound I hear recorded with the sound I have in my head is almost impossible.

With these Oktavas, I think I'm pretty damn close.

I've used these mics on every acoustic guitar I've ever recorded: the tracks have been played on national radio and garnered critical acclaim. No-one has ever questioned "why don't you have KM184's or Shoeps?" - I just set these up, hit record, and sit back. I've even taken them to pro-end studios, much to the scoffing of the Neumann/Neve brigade, and watched as these have trumped every other mic for acoustic guitars...

So. What's good about them? Great transient response, great over frequency range, relatively robust, very cheap in comparison to the badged competition... Genuinely can't fault them.

I'd like to get some omni and hyper caps eventually, for room and more focussed recordings, but in the mean time, I'm very, very happy with these and will be using them for the forseeable.

Useful, decent sounding mics

Total rating

Mostly use these in x/y for recording acoustic guitar, sometimes singly for violin and other small stringed instruments. They have a certain sound. I find them quite bright when compared with any of my large diaphragm condensers, which sometimes is what you want. I've had no problems with them, and have used them on numerous recordings. Happy with my purchase.

Oktava Mk 012 Match Pair

Total rating

Oktava make excellent sounding Mics for a fraction of the price you pay for Neumanns and others.
I have compared them to many high end Condensers and I have found there is very little between them.
I use them for recording Classical guitar in Stereo and they have a pleasing natural sound which is warm with a smooth high end.
Excellent Value for money!
