Rode NTK by mattayl
I got this mic about a year and a half ago and let me say it is a fantastic mic for the money. However in order to get the most out of the mic, swap out the stock tube and chuck in a NOS amperex, valvo, mullard, philips, siemens or JAN - preferably an earlier model. With a NOS tube this mic really warms up and gets rid of all the high end sizzle. It works a treat on female vocals and excellent for micing acoustic instruments however male vocals can be jut a tad hit and miss otherwise its fantastic.
Highly reccomended for the money as it demolishes the MXL genesis which is even pricier!
