I can't decide in between a pair of NT5's or a pair of NT1000's for drum overheads.
I use overheads as the main mics, I place them to pickup the boom of the toms, not just the cymbals.
I'm looking for a big open sound.
The price difference is not an issue.
A RODE Mic Press release just came in with a video tour of their factrory. Very impressive, you must check it out:

I just finished a comparison using my voice, which is a gravelly baritone. I've read much inconsistent reviews on the RODE Classic II so I had to find out for myself . I stacked it against a new Neumann U87ai which I love BTW.
I used three of my Favourite Preamps
Great River MP 2NV, Millennia...
This is basically addressed to Dave / aamicrophones!
Have you ever done a mod to the http://www.rode.com/faq/product/classic2 ? They have the NOS 6072 valve in them. Would you recommend anything done to it? If so, what could one expect as an improvement?
Enjoying your posts BTW so I hope you...
I've just purchased a Tascam US-122 MKII audio interface, two dead cats and a matched pair of Rode NT5s for recording via my laptop, hopefully outdoors. The reason for this is to have good audio for the videos i'll be filming on my canon 550d of various artists, for posting on...
Okaaaay so I recorded vocals for a song back in December at a buddy's set up (here is the song):

And I recorded that with the Rode NT1-A. Now I was going to buy that mic, but it was all sold out at Sweetwater...
Hello, our well-used Rode NT2 condenser mic has developed a problem.
When miking at low-levels it's fine in every way.
But when we use it for vocals or high-pressure stuff it only works for a couple of minutes. Then the audio fades over a few seconds to be replaced with a fading-in loud hiss...
I'm trying to decide between the nt5's and the mk012, mp.
I need something that I can also use on acoustic guitar and overheads, and some day I'll get a better SDC for acoustic guitars etc. But for now I need something that will work well with both.
I heard the nt5's are a bit harsh on the...
Hi, I'm in the market for a condenser mike and am trying to decide which one to get. I've read alot on here and reviews on musians friend and sweetwater about the ST55, 66 etc. Today I went to a music store and had the chance to listen to the Rode NT2-A and the AT3035. It seemed as if the AT was...
This is a slightly different take on the impossible question of "which Mic should I buy!"
I already have a Rode NTK which I am quite happy with and have got some nice vocal and acoustic guitar recordings with it. I want to do some experimentation with MS recording and thought that the K2...
I'm going to get a shotgun mic and came across this pretty convincing comparison. I'm not looking for stellar audio here as I would be hiking around the streets with whatever I got.
The NTG-3 does it for me
What do you think?
I have a matched pair of original RODE NT1's, and was impressed with the A/B comparison with the U87 after Michael Joy did his mod. I'm considering getting them bot modded by him and he said the will still remain closely a matched pair. Any input would be great, thanks
I've been looking at these 3, they're at different prices here in Argentina. which one should I go for?
the aim is to record mainly all-round vocals and an ocassional acoustic guitar in my home studio. I've got a mackie vlz-403 mixer with very good mic pres and phantom.
any ideas? cheers!
I recently purchased a Rode NT1-A condenser mic. I've yet to receive it, but got it for a steal - the anniversary edition (mic, pouch, cable, shock mount, pop filter) for $165 brand new from the factory.
I record through an M-Audio Fast Track Ultra. Could anyone recommend some decent...
I'm recording a band with quite a shrill sounding vocalist. Its high, screamy, and screetchy.
I have a C414 that goes through a Great River MP-1NV into a presonus interface into logic.
I am considering getting something else to soften, and improve the week spots of the vocals.
here is an...
