Oktava MK 319

Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

A fixed cardioid characteristic is offered as well, which is common for most studio requirements. The nearly identical electronics of the MK 319 is responsible for the very popular and very musical basic sound.

Unbeatable quality for Price

Rade V., 03.11.2014
Apart from being built like a high-security communication controller on a nuclear submarine, this microphone delivers quality on every single level. The Russians are not famous for making many things, but the ones they do, they truly outclass everyone else.

Now, I know that there are higher class and better quality microphones out there, but this Oktava (read Monster) here is hands-down the best microphone I've ever used in a studio. It has such a balanced and dynamic frequency response, that I seriously think there is no instrument or voice you can't record with this (with the exception of treble frequency based percussion and really high-pitched orchestral sections).

Voices come off as warm and natural on it, with a perfect cut-back on some higher mids in the vocal frequencies - which gives outstanding clarity without the nasal quality many condenser mics carry with them. The mic also gives the most balanced frequency pick-up I've ever heard on condensers, which makes it ideal for post-recording equalization, effects and editing - whereas with most other mics, there is always a lot of cutting necessary, and never enough balance prior to recording, and post-recording as well.

You DO need a pop-filter with this one though, and the shock-stand is also a necessity, as it really is sensitive to vibrations - but this is its only drawback. The build quality is superb, and I think you could actually lug it around like a Dynamic Microphone, and it could easily take the beating.

All in all, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a low-range price but for high-range quality. I am convinced that if this mic was made elsewhere and marketed better, it would definitely dominate the market - but even as it is, it is a great product for the price, and probably one of the best Money-For-Value deals I've come across in years when it comes to music equipment!
