Rode K2 Valve Multi Directional Mic


The RØDE K2 is a premium valve condenser microphone featuring dual 1” gold sputtered diaphragms. Infinitely variable control of the polar pattern from omnidirectional through cardioid and bidirectional/figure-8 provides the freedom and flexibility to excel in any recording situation.
High-performance specifications (including a maximum SPL of 162dB) are combined with the character and subtleties of the legendary mics of the 1950s to provide a microphone that not only provides world-class vocals but is perfectly at home recording a wide range of instruments both up-close or in a wider ‘room’ capacity.

Magazine Reviews
SOS Jul 2004 "The Rode K2 is a very nice multi-pattern tube microphone, with a warm, classic sound." http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul04/articles/rodek2.htm Audio Technology Magazine "How does the K2 stack up against the C12/U47 yardsticks? Well, after a number of weeks with this mic, in my opinion, Rode can hold its head high in such lofty company." http://studiospares.s3.amazonaws.com/prd/417130/k2_Audio_Technology_Review.pdf Electronic Musician, Dec 2003 "The danger is that you’ll read this review, note the price, and assume that the mic can’t be that good. Do me a favor: Put the price aside and give this mic a listen. I think you’ll be extremely impressed." http://www.emusician.com/gear/0769/rode-k2/137807
