Great, smooth sounding set of microphones
Joost van Dijk, 08.12.2019
I was a bit reluctant to buy this set at first because I read some reviews about inconsistencies in built quality.
However, after a few years of use, I can happily say that its a great sounding and looking set.
I use them for instrument recordings, room ambience, field recording. placed on a cello for live instrument amplification and sometimes even for very natural sounding close up vocal recording with the omni capsule.
To me, they sound smooth without being dull. They still have a nice little high frequency spark.

I would definitely recommend this!

+ good built quality
+ excellent audio quality
+ versatile
+ nice wooden box

Superb
Jamie K., 25.10.2013
I really love these mics. I have used them on drums (overheads), acoustic guitar, solo violin, string quartet, electric guitar cab, piano and vocals. They sounded good (at the very least) on all sources. They sound particularly good on drums and acoustic guitar. Vocals were the greatest challenge but using the omni capsule, a pop shield in a dead room I got some very usable results.

Great value for money. Excellent build quality. Versitile (with all the capsules). I'll be using these mics for ever! Love them.

Excellent mics and great value
F Kelly, 17.06.2015
Got my MK 012s a few months ago and I'm very happy thus far. I was a little worried about the quality as the web is filled with reviews of certain models being confused with a cheaper and inferior copies, but these from Thomann are authentic.

The mic's themselves are a matched pair, and documentation of this is provided with the item. So far I've experimented mostly with drum overheads and have found these to work really with in both ORTF and my personal favourite X/Y configuration.

Sound wise, they are very good, and hard to fault at this price range. There is significant brightness, but its not brash or abrasive and even has a good warm tone to them, something that I lacked in my last overhead setup. One thing I would note happily is that the high hats come alive in these overheads.

The MSP6 also comes with 3 capsules for diversity, enabling you to record everything from guitars, string instruments, percussive elements and even vocals. The -10 db padding modules also allow more harsh sounds to be tamed without damaging the mics. Optional shock mounts make this a great mic for any setup.

Highly recommend at the price rage.

SOLID Quality small and versatile
Matthew N., 02.07.2014
These are very well matched mics i have had mine 8 years now and never get problems with volume of frequency response between the 2 mics (setting them up well makes a difference of course)
well made i swap the heads all the time no problem
good sound fairly quiet (for the money) they do all seem to pick up from around the back so not the best of axes rejection.
