-10db??
« on: February 26, 2004, 10:19:45 PM »
I thought I remember reading in a post that the Oktava mc 012's shouldn't be run with the -10db pad on them?  I searched several times..but could not find the post....  Can anyone tell me if it is bad to use it?  what exactly does it do?

i never run it.  Just not useful and doesn't add anything.  Unless you were right in front of a stack i dont see why you would need it.

Taylor from the soundroom says to never use them.  other tapers have used it for their shows claiming good results.

I'd go to a crummy local show and try one set with and one without, or even just run them for a crummy opening act.

I remember seeing that thread, maybe scroll through every page? (I've done that before and I found a whole bunch of other useful oktava threads)

The word from sound room was that the -10 db pads are very poorly built and can degrade the signal considerably.  

That being said, I've never needed to run them, even in tiny clubs with really loud PAs.

I don't think that they are really needed even at really loud shows.
Those Oktava's seem to be pretty resistant to spl...
