Best mics I've ever purchased

simi1029, 01.04.2016
Usage scenarios
So far I've recorded drums, vocals and acoustic guitar with these mics. This month I will record some percussion instruments (vibraphone, marimba).

Sound quality, pros
The sound quality and clarity is unbelievable. I really like the modular layout of the product. The frequency response is really good and balanced.

For example for drums I used the 10 dB pad module, but for vocals it was fine without it.

Minor things
The wooden box is looking really nice, but I would recommend purchasing a decent case for these microphones. Also the included clips are working just fine with acoustic guitar recording, but using them as drum overheads, they pick up too much rumble from the floor.

If you planning to buy a shock mount for this mic, the t.bone SSM 4 shock mount is too large for this microphone, it slides out of the slot. This mic is pretty small. So choose carefully.

Summary
All together I am really satisfied with this product. The build quality is sturdy, you can easily feel and hear the quality of the product.

Nice pair and excellent quality/price ratio

Mikk M., 25.02.2014
Oktava has made an exceptional set of microphones here. The ones delivered to me represents the MK 012-02 model (the picture is of the older 012-01 model). The outside and all the accessories are the same so it is probably the inside electronics which is different. The metal build quality is good, everything what you would expect from a former military factory :)
The wooden box looks nice in the picture and in the first glance, but in real it is far from being tight, let alone waterproof or sealed. I am seriously recommending and thinking of buying a good case for them.
The reason I bought them was that I was looking for buying a stereo set of omni mics for acoustical recording of strings, piano and orchestra.
I recorded some orchestra in the rehearsal and in the concert in two different acoustics. So far only good words. The sound picture is very natural and it really sounds like it sounded on the spot. It might be that the lowest bass might need some support from the equalizer but otherwise really true set. The channels seem to match well and I am happy, at least for now.
