The Oktava MK-102 Microphone is a large diaphragm microphone that is idea when you need a microphone with a flat frequency response that is maintained from 0 to 180 degrees to achieve a natural room sound spectral balance. This stealthy black version fades into the background on stage, on camera and in the studio.
The Oktava MK-102 features a large 27.5 mm condenser capsule using all-brass backplate construction, precision-drilled pattern control holes and optimal 5 micron diaphragm for classic LDC microphone presence on vocals or instruments. A close-fitting housing surrounds the capsule and allows the front diaphragm to function in free-air without internal headbasket reflections. In addition, the Oktava MK-102''s unique capsule and body orientation reduces reflections between the microphone and the sound source. The Oktava MK-102 body disappears completely behind the capsule head when the mic is aimed at the sound source. This leaves only the capsule diaphragm exposed to the sound source for minimal reflections and clear-sounding recordings. The Oktava MK-102 uses the same transformerless circuit found in the renowned Oktava MK-012 to deliver the alluring sound of direct phantom power applied to a large diaphragm capsule. On axis the Oktava MK-102 offers a smooth and extended frequency response with clean and accurate top end free from the harsh, excessively bright sound found in many modern microphones. Off axis the requency response from 90 through 180 degrees closely resembles the on-axis sound and the attenuation of sound over this angular range is exceptionally smooth.
