Modifying our MK-319

No budget microphone collection is complete without an Oktava MK-319. Ours was bought in late 2000 for $79 on eBay.

Recently, we'd read about an Oktava-specific modification shop in Tape Op called, creatively enough, Oktava Mod. After a handful of emails with Michael, the shop's owner/tech, we decided to send in our beloved 319 for an upgrade.

They offer one basic MK-319 modification, with additional mods available for the chassis and internal electronics that'll graduate the 319 to some fairly impressive specs.

Ours is set to be modified on 1/18/07. Be sure to check back around then for a review on the results!
