One of the greatest mics aroud!


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!

one of the best mics in the world


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.

I Love My NTK Everytime I Use It


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

NTK is a great vocal mic


I have been using this mic for a couple of years now and I have always enjoyed a clean, clear, warm sound. Best investment I've ever made to improve my vocals.
