Nice warm sounding microphones
jwork123nl, 06.03.2019
I bought the MK012 matched pair (cardoid) to record my grand piano. Using the Rode stereo bar with them. The Oktava's are very small and light, easy to setup.

About the sound: they create a warm and detailed sound. I think you cannot describe them as neutral, but they sound very nice, not hyped, I like the sonic character.

They are about 10dB less sensitive than my rode NT-1A large diafragm mike. Also they produce a slight bit of noise, not a problem at all for the piano or an instrument like a guitar, which is loud enough. (The noise is about the same level as the background sound in my room.)

I also bought the Thomann spins, but did not use them up to now (not necessary yet), the provided clamps work well enough (mounted on a mic stand on a marble stable floor)

Conclusion:
I will keep these, since I like the particular sonic quality and they compliment very well my matched pair of Rode NT-1A LDC. They make my grand piano sound vibrant and alive.

Perhaps for my next pair of SDC I will buy the SE8, because this seems to be very high quality, and neutral sounding (for recording my acoustic guitar). And would again nicely complement the Oktavas.

The best performance by far, at this price! Superb.

I have a few Oktava MK012 already, some of which I've bought secondhand. Recently, I've gone over to using small diaphragm condenser mics on saxophones in a live situation (as opposed to "traditional" SM57) and needed some more.

I bought a pair of MK012 in black, that look and feel beautiful, and come in a little wooden box. The sound though remains fantastic - smooth and detailed with a slight HF lift to add a little "air". Mids are totally natural and uncoloured, and the bass is warm and uncharactistically full for a small diaphragm mic. Many lower cost condersers have a harsh "spitty" quality to the treble whcih cannot easily be corrected with eq. These certainly don't have that problem, which is whay they have been favourably compared to the likes of Neumann and Shoeps which thoough probably better still, cost a great deal more.

The clip works well and is all metal, and the fit and finish is better on this recent pair than the ones I've had for years. Oktava's manufacturing has obviously.improved and this is really pleasing.

In summary, they're perfect mics for saxes, drum overheads, trumpets and acoustic guitar in a live situation. I've also used them as main ORTF pair for recording choirs.
