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.

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.
