Oktava MK-13

 

This 1970 Oktava MK-13 is of the same league as its more well known eastern European counterparts. Made in Russia with oversight from Lomo Microphones, the MK-13 is a multi-pattern tube condenser microphone with a classic vintage sound that is both bigger than life and pleasantly detailed. This particular microphone is fitted with *literally* the last new-old-stock M7 capsule from the Oktava factory. Along with the tube preamp circuit of a Lomo 19a19, the MK-13 is neck to neck with any U47.
