The Oktava MK-101 Microphone is a large diaphragm microphone which is ideal on vocals or guitar cabinets where you want a classic mid-range presence, sibilant-free top end and a warm room sound with just a touch of top end room presence.
The Oktava MK-101 Microphone headbasket features a large open area 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. Building on the marketplace success of the legendary Oktava MK-012, the Oktava MK-101 uses the same impedance converter / output circuit and body design made famous by the Oktava MK-012. On axis the Oktava MK-101 offers a powerful midrange presence and natural top end response with excellent rejection of sibilance. Off axis the Oktava MK-101 has moderate attenuation at 90 degrees giving the mic a wide cardioid pick up pattern. At 180 degree the 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.
