I always mic up [the NT5] when I can. I point it at the bass side of the bridge and I get so many comments on the tone of my fiddle.

To me, the RØDE Classic II is the modern version of the great old tube mics we all love. A simple, perfect balance of low end warmth and smooth, articulate top end.

This is a beautifully designed, easy to use piece of Australian audio engineering which faithfully captures ambient atmospheres. It would be especially useful in natural settings and at musical and sporting venues.

In my opinion, for its price and quality the new RØDE NTG8 is the best shotgun microphone around... it is simply the best shotgun microphone I have ever handled!

Like so many others on the planet, I previously purchased an NT1-A, marvelling at how a microphone could have such a low self-noise. Incredibly, we now have an even quieter microphone in the NT1.
On the first day of tracking vocals at a Nashville studio, I brought along my K2 to get the engineer's opinion. He set it up beside his favorite vocal mic, a high end Neumann. Long story short... The K2 became the main vocal mic used on the project and that very week he bought one of his own!

There is no better condenser microphone at this price range, and purchasing the NTK has been one of the wisest "mistakes" of my recording career.

Throughout the years I've found the NT1-A to be one of the most reliable and best sounding mics I've ever used. I wanted to thank you for making my life/job that much easier by making it that much simpler to get amazing sound right from the get-go.
- Jason Benjamin, Harpers Ferry
Just a beautiful sound I just love it, it sounds so warm and smooth and this mic [NTK] is just "wow" it will open up your eyes and ears.
