- Model: Oktava MKL-111
- Manufactured by: Oktava Microphones
Developing a line of high-end tube microphones Oktava sets a goal to create a capsule, similar to the best classical models. The new Oktava MKL-111 was specially developed for this double-seded new capsule with a monolithic electrode
This new tube microphone has a unique continuously variable pick-up pattern. So it is possible to adjust any necessary directional characteristic in the range from omnidirectional to hypercardioid and to figure-of-eight.
All electronics is mounted inside a heavy brass body, which eliminates a possibility of internal resonances. The preamp schematic is based on the vintage hand selected triode EC92. High-quality transformer provides minimal distortion and a high overload capability.
"...Especially in speech and vocal recording reveals the MKL-111 a very pleasant, warm but direct and honest sound that can always compete with the high-end microphones of other partially much more expensive brands. Especially the cleanliness of the sound stunned me here totally. ... When recording acoustic guitar, it is of course the positioning of the mic at the instrument very important. But after finding the right position the sound is awesome. Plenty of volume in the low-end range, but also the silky-smooth high frequencies can convince. In the middle range of the spectrum, especially in the attack portion of the steel strings, this mic has a very good figure..."
