Okatava 219 on toms

Is anyone else using oktava 219s on toms? They sounded fantastic on a recent session!

We also had 421s available but favoured these greatly. A very natural and right sound.

I haven't tried the 219's on the top of toms but I've put them on the bottoms and they sounded great. I had 219's on the bottom and Octava MC-012's on the tops (with cardioid capsules). Sounded great. Lots of body and sustain. Huge sounding toms! The -012's have become my favorite tom mics. And they're cheap, so if a drummer wacks one, it's not a big deal.

Thanks for the tip. I have one of these laying around and I never make use of it. I'll try it on toms next time.

I've got a pair of 012s so I'll give them a try also.

What pres do you favour them with?

Thanks for the tip!

Are those the old chunky ones ? I'd be afraid that they might turn to dust if a drum stick got near the new ones !

The new ones - I can see what you mean I don't think they'd last very long! The 219s are much more robust.
