Hi, I own a Rode NTK. It's a tad too hyped in the upper frequency ranges...A little too 'essssssy'. My style of music is: Coldplay, Live, Radiohead, U2, so I'm singing in a variety of mixes (sparse/slow tunes all the way to fairly heavy rock). My preamp is a FRM Audio RNP (solid state...pretty clean). Looking for a mic for around $600 that will have clarity and a little character. I'd like high-end detail, but a little smoother than the Rode. Right now I'm thinking about replacing the NTK with: M-Audio Sputnik AT4047 AT4060 ADK Hamburg (cheap) AND Shure SM7 Any opinions on that list? Suggestions? Thanks! TCW p.s. It's my 1st post!
