Rode NT2-A - Multi-pattern Large-diaphragm Condenser Microphone


Rode NT2-A - Multi-pattern Large-diaphragm Condenser Microphone

The NT2-A is a highly versatile large-diaphragm studio condenser microphone designed to offer pristine audio quality and flexibility in equal measure. Featuring a three-position pad (0dB, -5dB, -10dB), high-pass filter (flat, 40Hz, 80Hz), and polar pattern control (cardioid, omnidirectional, figure-8), it can easily adapt to any recording situation in the studio.

The NT2-A features a dual 1-inch gold-sputtered cardioid condenser capsule with internal shock mounting and offers ultra-low self-noise and a full frequency response, evoking the silky smooth character of the legendary microphones of the '50s and '60s.
