Remarkable stereo mic

Total rating

I bought this to see if it was a worthwhile improvement on the 2 x Oktava MK012 condenser mics that had been using for choral recording. I'm happy to advise that it is and has all the open, airy definition of the Oktavas but is just so much more convenient to set up and use.

The only problem I have experienced is that once I had a "frying" sort of noise from one fo the capsules, when I first set the mic up. This disappeared after 30 minutes or so, and I've put it down to dampness in the capsule perhaps after it'd been in storage for a while. I now keep it in a sealed container with a bag of silica gel (dessicant) to keep it dry, and have had no further problems.

It absolute quality terms it's probably some way short of the Shoeps that has obviously inspired it, but for less than a tenth of the price, you're certainly getting more than a tenth of the mic. Highly recommended.

Nice microphone for all stereo recordings!

First I hoped, that you could have turned the capsules in the end of the shaft, but after using the microphone in the first recording (choir) I realized, that the factory set angel is perfect and doesn't need any own configurations. Have been using this microphone to record and amplify choirs, classical orchestras, theater-plays and even acoustic guitar. The microphone has never let me down! Really low noise level with a really wide dynamic range! Rubber-shockmounted mic clip is also doing it's thing and working well!
