rode tubes ?

I have read quite a bit here about changing out the stock tube in rode ntk's to something like a mullard instead of the stock CHINESE one.

My one has a Sovtek in it, which I believe is russian. So have they used different tubes over time? I assume the sovteks aren't chinese..

just trying to work it all out

Sovtek is not Chinese... it is Russian. Last I heard the Russians hate the Chinese and vice versa.

...the subject of upgrading the stock Sovtek tube was covered in depth in these two threads on HR.com:

i took the sovtek tube outta my K2 and put a bugleboy in it.. much smoother high ends, mids are softer, overall the mic is quieter too...
