Like its bigger brother, the K2, the RØDE NTK is a premium-valve condenser microphone designed to provide incredible detail and warmth in the studio. Its cardioid polar pattern is perfect for most single-instrument recording scenarios.

The electronic circuitry complementing this very sensitive transducer includes a hand-selected twin-triode 6922 valve and audiophile-grade components. The result is an ultrawide dynamic range, low noise and stunning tube warmth. The NTK's rich valve sound is ideal for vocals, acoustic instruments, drum overheads, guitar amps and pianos.

The RØDE NTK microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry-leading 10-year warranty.
