    "Rode NTK: Raise your hand if you were smart enough to purchase the best deal in the music retail biz..."

    Sound:
    It's simple. If you don't care about name brand glitz, you'll be lucky enough to end up with the RODE NTK, the best sounding mic under $2000...PERIOD. As far as the $2000 plus category goes, the NTK is only as good as the revered classics.
    Feature:
    The NTK doesn't have much in the way of features other than a big sturdy case (large enough for that alto sax) and a monstrosity of a proprietary power source (it's a tube mic, deal with it). I guess a roll off would be nice but the thing is so damned sweet sounding on vox and acoustic gtr that I haven't even had to EQ with it much in the course of about 20 or so sessions.
    Quality:
    The reputation is growing and soon the price will follow. Fill your studio with Rodes before you can't afford but a one.
    Manufacturer Support:
    I bought the mic during a dark period in my life and the people at Rode were there for me...just kiddin'. What kind of support would one need with this thing? Let me think....uh,hello, my NTK fell off of the roof, bounced on the concrete and fell into the pool. It still works fine but it's all wet!
    Value:
    THE BEST. P E R I D -Shaq Diesel
    The Wow Factor:
    I tried to have sex with it but it's almost 3 inches in diameter and it got stuck in my....sex appeal? What kind of stupid ass question is that? I want it? If you're reviewing it based on how it looked in the Macy's window, thanks for nothin'.

    "The Rode NTk It's Sizzles !! by John Petrocelli from New York City, June 17, 2007 Music Background: Hypnotist - Voice Over"

    Sound:
    “This is one warm, sizzling microphone. It oozes sensuality in the right hands like no other microphone. In my huge arsenal of 25 years of microphones, I constantly come back to this one when I want to bring out that intimate sound ... Lets just say ... on the outside ... it may be metal ... but inside ... it just blows in your ear.” John Petrocelli - Hypnotist / NYC http://www.healthwithhypnosis.com http://www.hypnoclass.com
    Manufacturer Support:
    I dropped the mic from a ceiling shelf. Rode express mailed me a new tube ... free ... See if Neuman will do that for you.
    Value:
    It's a steal.
    Overall:
    I have bought other microphones costing more and less ... I still go back to the NTK when I want that warm sound.

    "More bang for the buck!"

    Sound:
    The sound of this mic is awesome. U87 is overated! Tech. has changed. And rode is one of the leaders offering more bang for the buck! The sound is warm and bright. great for almost any vocal style. I auditioned just about every mic. you can think of before buying this one. Beat out Blue Neumann Tlm103-to dark and the list goes on. Highly recommened running it through a good solid state preamp. Like a Grace 101.
