Summary: This is my repeated purchase because I found this Rode K2 is as good as my Neumann TLM 107 with a Mackie Onyx 1620i mixer and a pair of Dynaudio Acoustics BM12A monitors.

Classic tube Mic that will make your vocals sound warm and smooth.

Summary: Wonderful Mic for Vocals and other applications. this mic will perform excellent in the studio for you. I bought this mainly for vocal's since I think tube Mics give Vocals such a warm and full sound to your vocals.
Excerpt: This Mic sounds great and hands down in my opinion its the King of all Mic's when your on a budget. Sounds really good with the Universal Audio Solo 610 preamp. Best bang for the buck. Just get it !! You wont regret it.
Excerpt: Stock, the K2 is very thin sounding. If you've never used a quality mic before, you probably won't realize this. But you will realize how unrealistic everything sounds, as well as various other issues common to Rode mics.
Summary: I bought this mic because I wanted a versatile mic that can handle high SPL, under $1000 and also gives some character to my sources. I use this mic for vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar cabinets, drum overheads, and most everything.
Excerpt: I have owned K2 for almost 1 year and used it mainly for vocal. The high SPL handling is really impressive comparing to other mic I have ever had, nevertheless the variable polar pattern and full package including the large shock mount.
Summary: This mic is great. I was looking for a condenser upgrade and this one is just the right mic and price. It's no U87, but its getting there. Plus I swapped out the tube for an original 1967 Amperex JAN tube. That improved the sound. Great mic and a really great price here in eBay.
Excerpt: I have only had the mic a short time and have used it exclusively for vocals. I can say that in that application I'm very happy with its warmth and polarity control. The dedicated power unit, shock-mount and carrying case are nice pieces of the package.
