The c valve condenser microphone offers valve performance at an affordable price. Designed for high-end recording applications, the NTK features hand graded and selected twin triode Class A valve circuitry, and has a cardioid polar pattern. It produces an extremely warm, detailed sound, with exceptionally low noise levels and a wide dynamic range. The NTK's gold plated membrane is housed in an internally shock-mounted capsule, with a satin nickel finished body and heat-treated steel mesh head. A dedicated power supply unit is included as standard, along with a 10m multicore cable and M2 standmount.
