Oktava “mini tube” is a new extension to the 100 Series microphones, which fits all available capsules of this series: MK-012, MK-101, MK-102, MK-103 and MK-104.
This remarkable microphone preamplifier combines the warmth and clarity associated with tube technology and the presence of the capsule design for which Oktava is famous. Selected Russian military 6С6Б-В tube combined with a special powerblock design gives enough third-harmonic content to brighten and add warmth to any sound source.
The “mini tube” is for those who need one all round, multi purpose microphone, and suits digital recording perfectly by adding the character that can often be missing in digital recordings, while maintaining a very low noise floor. It is a very valuable addition to the microphone cupboards of larger studios having its own unique character which could be that elusive something extra during recording.
PSU both for 110 and 220V
