Oktava MK 012
Old 1st November 2010
Gear Nut

Got a chance to try a bunch of different stuff with some MJ modded 012s this past weekend on piano and was quite impressed. Tried XY, omni AB, and a few MS setups comparing to my usual DPA, Earthworks, and U87 mics. Will post to a new thread.

Great mics to be sure. I'd love to pick up a pair of the MJ modded ones in the future... they just work and work well on acoustic instruments and overheads. I'd imagine that they'd work fairly well as a x&y pair, but they won't be as "clean" as other high end ones. Still... that's kinda the beauty of them: they have their own sound.

There's also apparently an Oktava figure-8 head with built-in capsule but I haven't seen it on the a US site yet...
