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.

    Blown away!

    These are fantastic microphones, will be using them every time I record an appropriate source!


    Beautiful, rich, full sound, picks up the full dynamic range of a piano in an even, natural way. easy to find a good placement, and didn't pick up room noise nearly as much as my other mics.


    None so far!


    piano, nature recordings


    I would recommend this to a friend.
