NAMM 2021: Oktava MK-207

Cardioid capacitor mic unveiled

Oktava MK-207

Celebrated Russian mic-makers Oktava have used the virtual NAMM show to launch a new handheld vocal mic, called the MK-207. Visually, it evokes some of their vintage dynamic designs (the MD series in particular), but this new model sports a large-diaphragm capacitor capsule, and requires phantom power to operate.

The MK-207 has a cardioid polar pattern, and features a built-in shockmount and pop shield. Specs are fairly thin on the ground, but Oktava say it has a 20Hz-20kHz frequency response (no tolerances are given), and boast of high sensitivity and low noise. It's recommend it for vocals and acoustic instruments, both on stage and in the studio.

Oktava have been busy over the last year or so, and the MK-207 is just the latest in a number of recent microphone launches. Check out their website at the link below to see their current range.
