Rode NT2-A Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

The NT2-A carries on the tradition forged by the legendary RODE NT2. A professional large capsule (1") studio microphone incorporating three-position pick-up patterns, PAD and high pass filter switches conveniently located on the mic body, the NT2-A is at home on an incredibly diverse range of sound sources.

The frequency and transient response of this transducer has been voiced to complement today's modern recording techniques, and yet still evoke the silky smooth character of the legendary microphones of the 50's and 60's. Its superlative audio characteristics combined with the included SM6 shock mount with integrated pop filter, 3m (10') XLR cable and dustcover, make the NT2-A one of the most versatile condenser mics available.

Magazine Reviews
SOS, Mar 2005 "Rode have managed to produce a very sweet-sounding and highly specified multi-pattern microphone at a very affordable UK price. Definitely one to try if you need multiple patterns, but also worth it just as a cardioid vocal mic." Vocie Council, February 2012 "If you are looking for your first studio microphone then the NT2-A Studio Solution Pack offers excellent value for money. It provides great sound quality and enough flexibility to cope with most recording situations."

    The mic itself is very good - as with other mics at this price range it doesn't have that extra special something you get from a good Neumann for example, but for £200 it's excellent - put it in front of just about anything and it's fine, and handles high SPLs well too. My grumble would be with the package currently being sold - the shock mount and pop shield are OK if that's what you want (although the dual thread socket is too deep: you still need a thread adapter for a 3/8" stand) but it would be good to also have an ordinary stand mount as well - I often find shock mounts too bulky and take the centre of gravity too far away from the stand. The box and foam are no good for regular use so be prepared to invest in a proper case if you need to protect it.

    I use this for recording pretty much everything. It performs well with acoustic guitar, vocals, drums, strings, bass. Can't fault this mic, great price, extremely versatile, strongly recommend!
