The Oktava ML-52 is a ribbon microphone designed for use in the recording studio. I have only used the Oktava ML-52 in the studio and I wouldn't recommend using it outside the studio in any capacity. Since it is a ribbon microphone it is somewhat fragile and not meant for live shows or other uses outside the studio. It has a standard XLR connection and has a unique look to it that isn't found on too many other mics.


I've been using the Oktava ML-52 for about two years and I have found it to be a great sounding ribbon microphone for the price. I have used the Oktava ML-52 to record a variety of different instruments, and while it sounds better in some applications over others, it is a great overall ribbon microphone and suitable for recording just about anything. My favorite things to record with the Oktava ML-52 are male and female vocals (including lead and back up), electric guitar, and for recording a bass guitar cabinet. While these are the applications that I have found work best in my situation, I would encourage users to try recording whatever they'd like with microphone and see what will work best for them. There are a lot of cheap ribbon microphones being made these days, but the Oktava ML-52 holds its own and is one of the better made ribbon mics out there for the price. It also has a great look and design to it that is reminiscent of older microphones to give it that vintage look in addition to its vintage sound. Oktava makes some good mics at an ever better price, and I have come to trust their products. Overall, the Oktava ML-52 is a great ribbon microphone for the home studio owner looking to get a ribbon microphone that they can afford and that still sound great.
