    Hey, well while I am stuck in the very cheep pro-sumer (not even shure if I am this high :eek: ) I figure I might as well make the best of it. I am looking for duel purpose mics for overheads, acoustic guitar, and vocals. Well thats three things but close enough. I have narrowed down the mics to either a R0DE NT-1A or a couple of Oktava MK319's. I have heard rave reviews about the Oktava's and seeing as how I could afford two of them, well the more the marrier I always say. Any good/bad/indifferent opinions on this?

    Try out lots of them....put on phones at yer dealer and spend a couple of hours weeding out the crappola...and believe me there will be crappola...when yer done you may very well have two MK319's that sound good...but just as I have said, they will be different..Getting a stereo pair of these without going through the Soundroom is next to impossible.But you may get ONE good one.Go with that and buy something else also.A mic with another type of sound.MK319's are dark and detailed and dont have a lot of gain.
