    Well an Oktava MK012A with the hyper capsule is on the way to me from Sound Room. Looking forward to using it!

    You will also need a BBG/dead cat & suspension.

    Good point David. I'd probably get a Rycote InVision Lyre mount, probably an INV-7. Nice suspensions, fairly inexpensive.
    And since we're talking interiors, perhaps some inexpensive foam windshield. I use a Beyerdynamic teardrop foam thing with my (from Sound Room) Oktavas; just because someone recommended them way back when. I think this is the model:

    But note I don't use my Oktavas much; just for danger-mic situations where the mic might get run over or something. So poke around for updated (and perhaps better) recommendations.

    Have fun with you mic!

    When I used my (Sound Room) Octavas, the Inv-7 shock mounts worked good and $5 Windtech foam windscreen was adequate for most interior work, unless you're really whipping the boom around or in close proximity of an HVAC vent. The WindTech Ultra Series US‑2 gives much better wind suppression than a foamy for a lot less $ than the popular BBG.

    Suspension is covered. Since booming indoors, I feel like a BBG is overkill unless there's a lot of boom movement, which I don't anticipate. If we find we need the BBG, we'll get it. Dead cat is do-able.

    Good tip on the WindTech. Thanks!

    I bought my MK-012's and got them modded by Michael Jolly, he turned a good mic into a great mic. I preferred his MJE-K47 large diaphragm capsules so bought a couple of those, and used those primary for everything. Check them out here.

    you can hear them here in a video I made ages ago. Insanely good mics. And they are for sale if anyone is interested...... recently got a pair of Schoeps.
