The Oktava ML-52 Ribbon Microphone combines stunning looks with the classic sound of the double ribbon filament, which make this microphone a MUST HAVE in the studio. The ML-52 has been designed to show once again that this classic ribbon sound should never have been ignored or forgotten.
The Oktava ML-52 is suitable for use in any situation where a warm and rounded sound is required, The ML-52 is well suited towards string and brass instruments giving a sparkling but never harsh overall sound, but also particularly pleasing with vocals. The ribbon sound lending it an air of nostalgia whilst competing with modern condenser designs in terms of frequency response. The virtually non existent noise floor means that, used in conjunction with a good preamp. it is an ideal mic for digital recording. The advent of the condenser microphone helped to make the world forget how good ribbon microphones could be.
