      Comments about RODE NTK Cardioid Tube Condenser Microphone:

      I have had this microphone for about 5 years and it has never failed me once. The clarity and warmth of this microphone amazed me from the very first time I used it. I was recommended to buy this microphone by a sales person at the store and I cannot express how thankful I am for that advice. This microphone works great on vocals, acoustic guitars, and even percussion instruments such as shakers. This microphone is just amazing for its cost.

      Rode = Quality in my book!

        My vocal and acoustic guitar tracks just sound better now. It's great for bass amp(ampeg b15s) too.
        Buy it now. for this price you will get a mic comparable to a Newmann one, even best.

        Comments about RODE NTK Cardioid Tube Condenser Microphone:

        Self powered microphone, so you dont need phantom power. Very light weight, packaging is kind of bulky but it makes you look like a musician. You know how guitar, bass, trumpet,etc, etc, players carry there cases so people know they do music, thats how I feel when I carry my case. I have used my NTK in my home studio, professional studios, and I even bring it to rehersals with me. I wouldn't have it any other way.

        Thanx Rode,
        A Satisfied Customer
