A fantastic mic for a bargain price.
11.08.2014
I bought this for primarily filmmaking purposes. To have such a versatile multi-capsule microphone with a small form factor such as the MK 012 is fantastic; not to mention the astonishingly low price tag. Sounds great in every circumstance I've used it in (lower noise floor than my AT897 shotgun too). I can't recommend this enough; I wish I'd known how good they were before so I could have ordered a pair.

Purchased when Oktava wasn't mainstream, no regret so far
Slackfire - Italy, 21.02.2018
I purchased this Oktava when the brand wasn't mainstream so I did an "act of fatih" trusting my luthier's advice.
He was right. This Oktava is well built and easy to handle.
I mostly use the cardioid capsule that works very good with the Zoom H4 and H6 recorder.
I tried to use the mic to amplify a classical guitar with a Mark Acoustic AC101 but the results were poor.
I know, that's a silly thing to do, but sometimes dull experiments give unforeseen surprises (not in this case, though.)

Excellent Microphone
04.01.2017
I love these microphones, although there are some more natural mics out there this is superb value for money and the interchangeable capsules work really well. The only criticism I had was the clip was not the best in terms of adjusting and maintaining the angle. The best mic by far at this price point.
