It's a classic for a reason
corsair, 17.02.2021
While my mic locker is not huge (~10) and I am not a professional (I use them for home recordings), I can definitely say that after a couple of days of usage, I am already a big fan of this mic. I am recording acoustic instruments that can be bright and percussive in nature and the somewhat subdued-HF nature of this mic works very well, while with other mics that I have, which are more detailed in the high-end, the same instruments can sound harsh. You really cannot go wrong with this mic. The ability to switch capsules and shape the sound depending on the situation is also a nice advantage. The medium diaphragm capsule that comes specifically with this set is also very nice - although for the aforementioned bright instruments, I prefer the omni or the cardiod, as they are 'darker' than the medium diaphragm. Highly recommended if you are looking for a mic for acoustic instruments.

Resonable sound for the price
Torbjorn, 10.08.2013
I choose this product because it included several capsules in one package.

The small membrane capsule work very well for my intentions (acoustic guitar and measurement). The large capsule is used for my voice, the sound could be characterized as "useful". The chinese mics I have used before where way to sibilant and made mixing my voice difficult. With the Oktava mic I have a much easier time when mixing, it can handle all kinds of eq and processing without sounding harsh.

Quality seems good. Mic and capsule casing is very solid and the box it comes in is sturdy but surprisingly small.

Summary: good all round work horse.

Eierlegendewollmilchsau

Bin noch in der Erprobungsphase aber soweit sehr zufrieden. Zu berichten wäre bisher, daß ich den ersten Satz wegen verschnittener Gewinde zurück geben mußte und beim jetzigen Satz das Holzkästchen so dermaßen schlecht gefertigt war, daß ich es auseinandernehmen musste und neu einleimen. Krumm ist es immer noch - aber schön: Een beitchen Scheif hat Gott leif. :-)

Noch ein kleines Manko sind die Symbole der Cardioide: Die sind nahezu gleich aussehend. Minutenlanges stieren auf die Symbole und vergleich der Messstreifen haben dann Gewissheit gebracht. (Hören wär auch so ein ganz abgefahrener Trick gewesen...)

Btw. Der Mikrohalter hat schon ein 3/8 Zolladabter reingeschraubt.

To be continued.

Un son marginal mais fin !
DorianV, 27.02.2012
Le son est vraiment particulier, granuleux sur les 1K et pas vraiment précis dans les HF.
Le gros moins c'est qu'il n'y a qu'un corps et 4 capsules.... du coup c'est frustrant de pas tout pouvoir utiliser..
Des corps de micro sont dispo sur thomann ou le site constructeur.
