Comes with its own character...
DIRTYFONK, 26.06.2015
Sometime seems like a good mic to me, but just not for what i wanted it for ! I was hoping to find something to use for vocals which would give me definition and character without costing the earth. I find that it lacks some high end clarity and sparkle - it can seem a bit boxy , it does work for me on acoustic instruments its not a bad mic but it does have its own character. Not that pricey tho & just my opinion, it may suit you well .

ONE OF THE BEST MICROS QUALITY MARKET PRICE MK-101
Alonso Brown, 21.01.2013
This is one of those products that has made OKTAVA a brand more than respected among producers with great experience in recordings. It is a micro versatile, very soft, ideal for many voices in certain styles, and always correct, no stridencies.
Able to put many microphones in a much higher budget, (several times its price 2-5) in a test. Ideal to combine with a valve preamp.

It is an all terrain although Oktava only recommends it for voices and some wind instruments (woods). This is because it is not a bright microphone, and will not allow you to make certain types of mix. Oktava has other microphones with better characteristics for this type of productions. But this microphone is also valid for many of them.

On the other hand, in all those small studies that have little material, and decided to use it in one of these productions, surely would get a good result and with little work, being a micro so correct. If for these recordings you put an inappropriate mophone, you will not only not get the desired effect but it will also involve a very long EQ job.
The MK-101 is a versatile and correct micro that behaves well in almost all situations.
In its price range it is probably the best microphone in the market, with a large membrane, for voices.
