Oktava MK012 - good price and great mics

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.

While many people who buy these will want them for drum overheads, I should be clear that I don't use these for that purpose. My specific experience is close mic's on drums, acoustic guitar and choir mics.

The Oktava's are a nice pair of SDC's with modular pad and capsules sections. The capsules are quite affordable and for a location recording engineer offers a versatile set of tools for little cash. The added bone of individual frequency response graphs for each capsule also means you're aware of what errors each mic might have. This suits me fine, the less work I have to do in the dark the better.

For drums I favour a ribbon blumlein up close with omni outriggers flanking the kit, so my Oktava's are on the kick drum (beater side) and the bottom of the snare (m201 on top). They handle the high SPL's extremely well and yield excellent transient response without being too harsh. I'd love 3 more for my tom mics!

Last week I used them in an ORTF configuration on a small choir. This tends to be the real test for mics, as much of the sound in an ORTF is off axis and can become very coloured by the off axis response of the mics. However the stereo image was great, it all sounded very natural and the noise floor was very low.

I know lots of people go on about modding them and quality control, but I think it's a load of yarn. They're great workhorse mics that will suit a live, location or studio engineer equally well.

Perfect choice for this price!

I couldn't choose between Rode nt5, m5 and Oktava mk012-01.
But after listening examples was buyed "Oktava mk012-01 Matched pair".And this is really good microphones!
Great sound? Yes! (especially if you will buy stereo pair).
Ambiance space, acoustic guitars, over heads, choir - all sound is perfect!
I recommend!

My band started to record our own music about 1 year ago, and since then one of our biggest challenges has been to capture a good representation of the drum kit. We are a heavy band sounding not dissimilar from rock acts such as the Foo's and QOTSA.

Before purchasing the Oktava's I tried out several mics I had available to use to capture a better overhead sound, but the cymbals always sounded harsh and I ended up having to drop the OH's low in the mix to let the track come through. It is worth noting that our drummer drums hard!

I did a fair amount of research before opting for the Oktava 012's, I watched various youtube shootouts, read countless gearslutz threads, and ultimately for the funds I had available the Oktava's seemed to be the best choice. In practice, I'm not disappointed.

Using the cardiod capsules that came with the stereo set, the mics are noticeable darker than other LDC's and SDC's I have been using, with a smoother, less hyped top end. What this has given is a great overall image of the kit, with cymbals sitting much more comfortably in the mix. Some EQing is still required to reduce the 'bin-lid' frequencies, but that probably has something to do with the hard hitting drummer and the cymbals themselves. A positive side effect of wanting to improve the cymbal sound is that the whole kit sounds much richer using the Oktavas. To complement the OHs we have a sennheiser e602 kick mic, a few sm57s for toms and snare, and an Se2200a ii room mic. With this set-up we have the sound that we were looking for... for the timebeing at least.

I have also used the 012's in stereo on acoustic guitar, and it is by far the best acoustic sound I have achieved to date. Very smooth, warm and rich. Almost too rich to sit in a saturated rock mix, but I think that can be rectified with different mic placement.

All in all, I'm delighted with them... and I haven't even mentioned the cute wooden box they come in.

For this price these are hard to beat. And it's not just me talking - I have friends who wanted to borrow these to test, recorded something, borrowed after that again and again, just to later buy a pair of their own.

I've had no problem with these what so ever, they still work like a dream and I have had them for 10 years! Not a glitch. No moving mechanical parts. The -10dB pad is screwed between capsule and body. My mics came in a plastic box, witch is a bit cheesy.

I've used them on drum overhead and room mics, acoustic guitar and on various mixed intruments. Even used in a video production, although these can't resist handling noise, so stationary use is just about the only possibility. Awesome mics!
