Product Description

The RODE NT2A is a professional, multi-pattern studio condenser microphone. The NT2A is based on the legendary NT2 - the tone behind countless recording hits of the last decade. A professional large capsule (1 inch) studio microphone incorporating three-position pick-up patterns, PAD and high pass filter switches conveniently located on the mic body.

At the heart of the NT2A is the Australian designed and manufactured HF1 dual diaphragm capsule. 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. These features provide the flexibility and superlative audio characteristics that make the NT2-A one of the most versatile condenser mics available.

What is your opinion of this product?
I use a pair of NT 2A mics for recording small string ensembles in relatively good acoustic environs... They perform well in Figure 8 and Omni, which is how they are used mostly...

My desert island mic
Your general opinion of this product.
This is my desert island mic. It is the cornerstone of my commercial recording studio. It is extremely quiet, sensitive and has an incredibly realistic, transparent sound. It therefore takes EQ very well. It is exceptionally versatile, working well on many vocalists, toms, horns, guitar cabinets, cellos, violins, you name it. It is even credible on applications that are usually assigned to small diaphragm condensers, like acoustic guitar and percussion. I have used it to record choirs and orchestras and other stereo pair acoustic applications with great success. Own at least two of these, so you can use them as a stereo pair.
