April 2003—At Musikmesse, Oktava (www.oktava.com) unveiled the MKL5000, its first multipattern tube mic, with a large-diaphragm capsule mounted above the mini-bottle-style housing.


OKTAVA RIBBON MIC
May 2002—Russian microphone manufacturer Oktava has introduced the ML52, a true ribbon microphone featuring a double-ribbon filament and a fixed figure-8 pattern that is almost completely uniform at all frequencies. The Oktava ML52 is suitable for use in any situation where a warm, rounded sound is desired, and adds sparkle to string and brass instruments with a smooth vocal sound. Frequency response is 20-20k Hz and max SPL @ 1 kHz is 135 dB. MSRP: $799. TO READ THE REVIEW, CLICK HERE.


OKTAVA MKL2500
October 2002—The 6C315-P tube in the MKL2500, with the gold-sputtered 33mm capsule, gives enough third-harmonic distortion to brighten and add warmth to any sound source. Oktava mics are well-known for great prices, and the MKL2500 is no exception. All engineers can now benefit from the tube sound without paying huge prices. The MKL2500 is a fine all-around mic, suiting digital recording perfectly, adding character to digital recordings and maintaining a very low noise floor.


OKTAVA MK012a
August 2002—Added last year to the MK012 condenser line, Oktava's MK012a ($129) is a single-capsule cardioid mic based on the company's interchangeable MK012. Like the MK012's body, the MK012a has a frequency response of 20 to 20k Hz and can be specially ordered in matched pairs. The MK012 Multi-Capsule package comes with three interchangeable condenser capsules (omni, hypercardioid and cardioid) and includes a 10dB pad for high-SPL situations.
