akg p420 vs rode nt1a ?
Both microphones are quite good and personally I have tried both and. Rode nt1a quality are same as akg p420 during output. but if your room or place where you’ll going to record should be acoustic treated and sound proofing and if your place is not perfectly acoustic and sound proof then go for akg p420. Price of the akg perception 420 is under 12k and the price of the rode nt1a is almost 18k. So from the point of price akg is perfect but rode nt1a gives two extra thing that are pop filter and XLR cable which value of 3k then round figure value of rode nt1a will be 15k
