Could you tell me please what is the best alternative to Dpa 4011 for you in a budget under 400 euros ?
I find :
- Rode NT5 matched pair
- Oktava MK 012 - 01 MSP2 pair
- Haun MBC660L pair
Or maybe something else ?
yes, good pre-selection I think. I have an oktava with cardio and omni capsules. for the price, it is the best alternative to a dpa 4011 (I have for my part also a DPA 4011 TL).
I do not know much about rode nt-5
and not at all the Haun mbc 660L
With a not very high-end sound card, the difference between a dpa 4011 tl and a oktava is not huge. and second hand oktava only costs 100/160 £
an alternative below £ 400 with its better than the dpa, it exists; RM-6 from artur fisher (bumblebee company in Latvia). a small engineer craftsman has developed a ribbon microphone quite exceptional. I have two at home! for classical guitars recording is better than a DPA ... a lot of presence of the instrument, a natural rendering (without excessive shine), punch, and "hot". and with a sacred level of output. I am very happy for myself.
otherwise, the beyerdynamic M 160 ribbon microphone is an excellent microphone. a reference.
I apologize if the text seems odd in places, I use google translation to translate.
