doc benway's review

By doc benway, 18/01/2013
Laminae small condenser microphone supplied with 3 heads for three interchangeable directional (omni, cardio, cardio super-), a-10db pad.
A pretty wooden box, clamp well thought, it is very pro and we love that!


I bought a pair a month ago, I compared directly to my pair of KM184. I immediately recognized the neumann, a tab qd even more fun, this slight compression and harmonics I do not know .. In any case have held up well oktava comparison, they are very clean, very good frequency response and transient. For the price, it really is correct.
Only bemol: omni capsule seemed very sharp, not jolijoli. I reessaierai.
And I discovered the site oktavamod the usa that sells heads "comparable" U67 has the pair for $ 600 ...
When Russia meets the states!

The heavy.

Same lower


This micro amazed me when I got it hands the first time in 2003.
I did everything with this little gem, recorded ambiances, cymbal overheads Battery, Charleston, pianos (couple), saxophone, percussion atmosphere ... I recorded répets dees and has even been to take his bottom of the toilet.
For me his favorite is overheads, the Charleston and the sound ambiance.Une beautiful definition and a nice grain.
I agree with most previous opinions.
on the other hand I'm pretty bummed about not having that one at home, the results are more interesting couple.
That is, for me, a good quality mic through.

See manufacturer website


How long you use it?
7 years of use, sound and scene model

Did you tried many other models before buying it?
few dozen static :) I also possesses some (akg c1000 and C391)
test on a trumpet in front of a mkh50 (which costs at least five times the price) he got away with the honors, despite still nursing his (big) bump in the upper midrange.

What is so special that you love the most, least?
I like the discretion of the microphone, and sound amazing ...
felted (I do not like the aggressive treble) but full of warmth.
I have 3 including a pair, I use them often live as OH and the hihat, and with a good investment, nobody complains.

I do not like having to play for varying mechanical characteristics.

How would you rate the quality / price?
These microphones were great for the price a few years ago, I think they are now a little more expensive, I hope the quality remains.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
without problems, these pickups are super endearing

It's Russian ... but the good Russian.

Condenser microphone, comes with 3 capsules (omni, cardio, hyper), a-10dB attenuator and a clamp.
Ok for voice and instruments.


Is excellent value for money, with a clear, straight.
The capsules are large enough, they cashing well.
