For this price my best choice for steel string acoustic guitar
Tamáás, 30.12.2017
I wanted to buy a pair of small diaphrahm condenser with cardioid characteristic to record especially steel string acoustic guitar. I had about three hundred Euros for this purpose.
I could rent 2 famous and acknowledged microphone what recommended for acoustic guitar in this price range.
I wasn?t really satisfied. I started a big hunt. I listened to a huge
amount of audio samples (Thomann?s sample library is so
useful, has good sound quality - you need certainly a good quality audio output). I read tons of user review and tech spec. Finally I bought this mics. And I got what I expected.
Love. I? ve never heard my guitar sound so great on a record.
(Important: I have a high quality audio interface FF800)
Love because this mic has a special mellow tone character,
and transmit well the low frequencies below 150 Hz. The guitar
has body on the record, in case of also a distant mic position (what gives natural space). As an inexpensive small diaphragm condenser doesn?t boost annoying the high frequencies.
I tried for drum room record. The result was quiet good. It gave
a vintage 70? character for the drum set.
I record percussion with good result.
I tried also for flute, saxophone, overhead, - in these situations
I couldn?t feel such specially thing, I founded them quit average.
So I think this mics are the best for acoustic guitar.
In a healthy distant provide good lowend , with its special
transient response compensate well the sharp attacks of the picking.
Naturally for a professional record you need also a great instrument with fresh strings, a good audio chain, and good microphone position.
I read somewhere, and I agree : Oktava mk-012 01 is imaginable on a grammy award winning record as an acoustic guitar mic.
I think its a good result for a 315 Euro stereo pair.
Now I have a double priced pair of sdc. ( I made a new hunt ) This pair is better, but the difference not so significant.
If you don?t have double money, and you want record steel string acoustic guitar, this mic is probably the best choice.

MICROFONO OTTIMO E VERSATILE
25.10.2016
I've bought this matched pair to upgrade my mics to record OH Drums, but i've been nicely surprised for his versatility.

The briefcase is very cute, and prevents any hit (unless you throw it from the 4th floor's window);
The mic is assembled: it comes subdivided from his capsule, his attenuator -10 dB, e naturally his clamp

the sound is very valid, it results pretty faithful to frequencies, maybe with a subtle emphasis to mid/low spectre; it results great for recording OH, but also for acustic and electric's guitars; the most impressive consideration is about the room's reverb: compared to other mics, the mk 012 dull almost every reverb's reflection, resulting much detailed and accurate; this detail is not absolutely a small thing if you wanted to use the microphone for broadcast contexts, specifically for outdoor shooting, as it destroys almost all the reverb's reflections, compared to Rode ntg-3 (clearly for outdoor shooting).
The only defect would seem the clamp microphone as having no suspension whatsoever, it is subject to filming any vibration, so it is advisable to use a shock mount

PROS

- sound
- modular
- quality construction

CON

- clamp

Overall it's a mic by the excellent ratio Quality / price, very versatile, and allows you to experience a lot, I would advise buying.
