Rode NTK Tube Mic Customer Review
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I hope this mic last for a long time, that does not mean I would not buy some others, but you can build around this mic.
I bought the NTK about 2 years ago, I have been relatively please with the sound it produces... There are times when it sounds great, and other times when it get's a little grainy sounding, with lot's of electronic click in the recorded audio. I did by a new tube about a year ago, that did seemed to help make it sound fuller.
I use it for VO work, it does what it is supposed to do, record my voice.
Ease of Use
Plug it in and it does the rest.
This seems to be a well made mic, the tube that came with mine was a cheap tube made in China.. it sounded ok a first, but then I replaced it with a new Mullard that actualy was made in the 60's, and it really made it sound even warmer without sounding muddy.
I will give RODE the benefit of the doubt, I have never had to call on the support department.
The Wow Factor
It's a good looking mic that does the job... I guess that's sexy.
I can play a few instruments, but I am a Voice Over talent and producer that is why I visit this site.
I truly like all kinds of music from Jazz to Country.
