Hopefully Alan can give me some insight on this as well... I am wanting to get my first "nice" vocal condensor. And, it is really between these two mics at this point. I have heard some great things done with the NTK, and I would have no hesitation on buying it. However, I have heard some great reviews/opinions on the T3. But, I havn't ever talked to someone who used it a lot, or been able to try it out myself. I have the SP Demo CD, and I like the sound of it...I would say at this point I am leaning T3 becuase it seems to be a slightly more "world class" mic. My only hesitation is that I heard from one person that getting the mike placement right seemed very critical with the T3. Being fairly new to this, i need something that will probably be giving to my mistakes. I will be using this mic 90% for vocals (male, baritone). However i will surely try it out on my acoustic guitar as well. Anyone have experience with these? I think the T3 is probably 150 bucks more or so, doesn't matter to me.
