A very natural sounding capsule
Anonymous 31.12.2014
I bought this capsule for my existing MK-101, so I can also have a small diaphragm condenser now in one package. MK012 cardioid capsule has a very balanced, very natural sound. It isn't hyped or notched in any way, just what I want for recording acoustic instruments. I like it far better than some Chineese mics I've been using in the past. So far it performed well on whatever source I tested it on. I also very much like its off-axis response. The sound gets darkened of course, but pleasantly so. I tested it on a few different flutes and was very pleased to hear how smooth the wind sound was, which is not the case with many mics.

Top Quality Russians!
Brendan C. 21.06.2013
Cardoid Capsule for the excellent Oktava MK-012 Small Diaphram Condenser Mics.

these Mics punch well above their weight and price point
Great for Acoustic Instruments, with a very low noise floor.

Being able to change Capsules makes them very versatile
and they perform outstandingly with the minimum fuss.
comparing favourably with Neumann's and others at many times
the price.

The Capsule is solid and well made.
used as a Stereo Pair the Imaging is rock solid and very pleasing.
the Mk -012 preamp body finish is a bit grainy and strange but
thats no big deal.

All in all I would wholeheartedly recommend these Top Quality Russians.

Very good results for the price
Anonymous 29.04.2014
Just added this as a third cardioid to enable mid-side with a matched pair of MK-012s along with a figure of eight capsule and a SM-MSR holder as a suprisingly cheap way of getting a good qulaity mid-side recording at a low price.

Modular!

Okaaay, ganz ehrlich...
Außer, dass die MK-012 Kapsel eine ausgewogene, feinzeichnende, nicht zu höhenlastige Kapsel ist, kann ich nix Erhellendes beitragen.

ABER: Das Modulsystem von Oktava ist meines Wissens einzigartig.
Da kann man an die Stäbchenmikro-Basisteile auch Großmembrane mit Niere und Acht anschrauben. Das finde ich genial!!!
(...und benutze auch fast nur dieses System :-)
Deshalb kriegt dieses Produkt von mir die volle Punktzahl :-)
