  • OktavaModOktavaMod
    Michael Joly offers two basic mod packages for the MK-319, and three styles of headbasket mod, for a total of five options. The “Standard Mod” includes six electrical and mechanical modifications, including component upgrades, shock-mounting of the capsule, and the fabrication of a single-layer headbasket screen. The “Premium Electronics Mod” additionally replaces and upgrades the internal wiring and every component on the mic’s circuit board, including the stock FET, with high-end, lower-noise components. The “flat top” and “floating dome” options both provide an innovative single-layer, 360 degree, low-reflection headbasket (with no sidebar supports). See also the MK-219/MK-319 Omni Mod.
