Made in the USSR in 1990. Requires standard 48V phantom power.The sound is full, reach, detailed and transparent. Please keep in mind that this is not a modern black cheap version, in 1986 year OKTAVA still manufactured the greatest capsules, like the ones which were used in MK-13 or MK-13M. This MK-219`s uses very similar ones, as well as they uses the similar high-quality vintage OKTAVA transformers. The capsule employs an extremely thin, gold plated diaphragm and is built to a classic design, enabling the microphone to equal or outperform models many times its price, not only on subjective sound quality but also, in many cases, in terms of sensitivity. When used for vocals, the large diaphragm capsule adds warmth and enhanceshigh frequency detail while still sounding completely natural.
It is strongly recommended that the microphone be used in conjunction with a pop filter when close miking vocals. The Oktava MK219s high sensitivity means that it can be used on acoustic guitars, pianos and (in stereo matched pairs, available by special order) for ensemble recordings.
