Oktava MK-101 Factory Matched Stereo Pair of Microphones (Silver)

Oktava MK-101 Factory Matched Stereo Pair of Large Diaphram Microphones

Oktava MK-101 Details
These MK-101s are the newly-developed incredible-sounding cardioid microphones, which bring the famous MK-012 to a new level!
They use the 33mm diaphragm with that famous 'warm yet bright' ambient field, typical for Neumann U87 cardioid. These are a complete "high-end" large diaphragm stereo pair, that operates off of the well-known MK-012 preamp!

Designed to work with numerous sound sources to maximum effect, these MK-101s excel on vocals, for stereo miking of grand pianos, guitars and percussion amongst many other sources, and give presence and warmth to lead parts in the mix. The frequency response of these MK-101s is expansive, ranging from 20 Hz to 20 kHz and smooth throughout their polar pattern. Despite their sensitivity they have a very high SPL handling capability and very low noise floor, allowing straight to digital recording, leaving the pure warm sound unadulterated.

Oktava MK-101 Capsule
The Oktava MK-101 uses the successful 26mm 219/319 capsule much loved for its classic midrange presence and sibilance-free top end.

Oktava MK-101 Headbasket & Body
The MK-101 headbasket features a large open area ??forehead? for excellent off-axis response in the vertical as well as horizontal planes. Vertical asymmetry of the headbasket allows the recordist to explore different polar responses when using the mic upright or inverted. The small headbasket and body size make for easy placement and minimal reflection between sound source and microphone body.

Oktava MK-101 Circuit
Building on the marketplace success of the legendary MK-012, (over 90,000 in use worldwide) the MK-101 uses the same impedance converter / output circuit and body design made famous by the MK-012.

Oktava MK-101 Sound
On Axis ?" The MK-101 offers a powerful midrange presence and natural top end response with excellent rejection of sibilance. Off-Axis - The MK-101 has moderate attenuation at 90 degrees giving the mic a wide cardioid pick up pattern. 180 degree response has a warm spectral balance with strongest output below 200Hz, smooth amplitude reduction to 3 kHz followed by a moderate high frequency ambient sound presence peak.

The MK-101 excels on vocals or guitar cabinets where the recordist wants classic midrange presence, sibilant-free top end and a warm room sound with just a touch of top end room presence.
