Its omni-directional pick-up pattern makes the MKH 8020 the ideal main mic for “spaced pair” and “Decca Tree” recordings or the use in an OSS “Jecklin Disk“ array. Especially in acoustically favorable ambiences this excellent microphone unfolds its outstanding quality. With a wide frequency response, which reaches deep down to 10 Hz the MKH 8020 is a perfect choice for capturing instruments like organ, grand piano or double bass in all their natural beauty. Furthermore, its capsule design is optimized for an extraordinarily even directional diagram.

    None so far!

    piano, nature recordings

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.

    Wonderful true sound, amazing detail

    I would recommend these microphones, probably the best microphones that I own.

    PRO:

    Very good sound, no interference from nearby radio sources which has caused issues with other branded microphones.

    CON:

    Paint has started to chip off, not sure what has caused this. These have been in their case most of their life.

    BEST USES:

    Sound great on piano, a wonderful extended low end

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.
