Oktava ML 52-02 Ribbon Microphone


Written by

Will Brook-Jones

The ML-52-02 Ribbon Microphone combines a striking look with an instantly recognisable double ribbon filament sound.  

Modern Engineering 

This mic is built to meet the intense demands of current-day recording professionals. It combines the best of both worlds, blending old school ribbon warmth with the frequency response of a modern day condenser. If you're searching for a well-rounded and balanced sound, the ML-52-02 is more than up to the task. 

You'll find a seriously minimal noise floor too. The result? You can use the mic alongside a high-quality preamp, making it perfect for all of your digital recording needs.

Figure-of-Eight Polar Pattern

This pickup pattern works by picking up an equal amount of sound from the rear and front of the mic, but cancels out any sound from the sides. It boasts a high uniformity across all frequencies. This is paired with 90 degree stereo recording, enhancing the mics versatility even further. 

You'll find that it works particularly well when capturing both brass and string instruments. Every small nuance of your source will be highlighted, with a bright, crisp sound that remains clear at all times. Vocal recordings are equally great too, with a buttery smooth quality.
