Oktava ML-52-02 Studio Ribbon Microphone

Oktava ML-52-02 Studio Ribbon Microphone

Oktava ML-52-02 Details
This is an actual DUAL filiment (2.5 micron thin) ribbon mic that compares favorably with the "over $1000.00 mics". Don't confuse this with the single filiment mics you are seeing. These are the real thing, built in Russia using the same technology they have used (Pre WWII German) for over 60 years. The looks alone will impress any mic enthusiast.

The stunning looks of this microphone combined with the classic sound of the double ribbon filament and the reliability expected of today's modern equipment make this a very desirable microphone.

The Oktava ML-52 is suitable for use in any situation where a warm and rounded sound is required, The ribbon sound lending it an air of nostalgia while competing with modern condenser designs in terms of frequency response. The virtually non-existent noise floor means that, used in conjunction with a good pre-amp, it is an ideal mic for digital recording.

As a true cosine or figure-of-eight microphone the ML-52 has many advantages and uses in broadcast and installation due to the negligible sound it picks up from the sides, as well as 90 degree stereo recording. The figure-of-eight pattern is almost completely uniform at all frequencies.

The ML-52 is eminently suited to string and brass instruments giving a sparkling but never harsh overall sound and also gives a particularly pleasing smooth sound to vocals. The advent of the condenser microphone helped to make the world forget how good ribbon microphones could be. The ML-52 has been designed to show once again that the ribbon should never have been ignored or forgotten.

Comes in a Wooden Jewelers case with Mic Clip, Manual and One Year Warranty.
