I mean it looks nice..but there isn't really any insight available about how it will sound.

How does it compare? What does it sound like? A/B clips are always good. That link is pretty bare.

I am interested in it...but would like to know more.

Is that the same capsule/head as used on BLUE's Bluebird mic? It looks the same.

I have 3 of the Oktava's, all modded. At that price it's very tempting...

Yeah what's the deal with this capsule? Are there any response plots available? Sound clips would be ideal. Or better yet...do you offer a money back guarantee? Then at least someone could demo the thing and post some sound clips for the rest of us.

I talked to blue today when I was checking on my order for lollipops for my 451's. He says the head for the 012 is very similar to the bluebird but is still its own design. He just kept saying it was "beautiful sounding". I am interested to hear these guys.

I just sold my 012 pair and am pretty much only using 451's and 184's for my Small condensers now, but I would still like to hear this.

Apperantly the Type A mic is getting closer for release also, the new tube mic from blue. They have done a lot of work on it over the last few months he said. They wanted to get it out much sooner but they keep doing more to it, to make sure it is "just right". I am interested in hearing this guy also. I wish there was a trade in system for those who want to convert from a 451 capsule system over to the blue caps. Because now that I have three lollipops I would take a lot for me to find it worth it to buy a bunch more heads for a new mic even though I already have the same heads Kinda reminds me of having to buy your whole VHS collection of movies on DVD when that became the norm

Not complaining here, I love all of the blue stuff I have ever had, I just want IT ALL!!!!!

Sorry it took a minute to reply. I'll try to answer all questions.

First off, we do have a 14 day return policy. There is the option to do an even exchange with other product, or get a refund (minus a small restocking fee). Regardless, we will work with you to make sure whatever you get is right for you.

Also, the Oktava head is similar to the Bluebird although not the same capsule. It has a very clear, detailed sound and is meant for a wide variety of applications. Technical data is on the website, and more info will be posted soon.

And yes, we do ship internationally!

It looks like the stated Frequency Response and the chart are in conflict.

Hi, Heather. I have a pair of the slighty older MC-012 bodies. Do your capsules work with these bodies as well?
Pardon my ignorance on the subject.

Thanks!

i ask this of heather some time back.
the answer was yes.
i have since learned the MC-012 is the same mic as the MK-012.

Awsome, I have a pair of the older MC-012's as well, and these new capsules would be a great move on my budget.

uhhh...Do I understand the response graph to say that there is a huge low end bump in the capsule, or am I just stupid??

If you're referring to the green line, that's at a distance of one foot. I'm guessing that's the proximity effect response? The red line (which also an LF bump to the tune of about +1.5dB) is the curve at 3'.

Does this explain what you see?
