From Our Research Team:
A Legend Is Reborn - with Cool Extras!The NT2-A is a professional large capsule (1") condenser studio microphone with variable pick-up pattern, variable highpass filter and variable pad. These features provide greater creative control and versatility. Three 3-position switches located on the mic body provide the freedom to step from Figure 8, Cardioid or Omni polar pick-up patterns; from a flat response to either 80Hz or 40Hz highpass filter and a Pad adjustment of 0dB, -5dB or -10dB attenuation. The heart of the NT2-A is the Australian designed and manufactured TYPE HF1 dual diaphragm capsule. The frequency and transient response of this new 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. And just to make the NT2 A Studio Solution a home run, RODE is including a shockmount, cable, dust cover, and tutorial DVD! What an incredible deal!

Great mic! (Thanks, Dan)
by STEPHEN from NEW IBERIA, LAOkay, I don't have the experience that some of the other reviewers have. I wanted a better mic for recording vocals that would break the bank. Dan Van Amerongen recommended this one and another for ... read more [+]the same price. The other was more of a "pure vocal mic". We wanted the versatility this offered for recording instruments. So far we have recorded vocals for several songs, and we LOVE the results.

Detail, beauty, and precision.
by George Miguez from San Francisco Bay AreaPresently I produce music for hobby, but I set myself a high standard of artistic quality and I expect to go for sale in the near future.

Needing a microphone to record my own voice, $400 was the... read more [+] most I could spend.
I was surprised (blown away) for how "real" and "pro studio" my voice sounded (without using any EQ or processing).
With great enthusiasm I started recording everything in the house that could produce a musical noise.
The acoustic spanish guitar was unbelievable (even tough I keep it as a family memory and I don't know how to play)
The recording of some ethnic drum felt like it could reveal the fingerprints to the FBI in a TV series.
The flute (I've been recording my flute for 25 years with evolving equipment) sounded like "al last I got it". There was very little or the unavoidable wind noise and so much beauty and detail in the sound.
Assorted little bells and chimes had the highest high end sparkling with realistic precision and all their magic beauty.
By the way, while I was doing those recordings there were birds singing outside and jet airplanes passing by... none of the unwanted sound ended up in the recordings thanks to properly pointing the cardioid pattern, I guess.
The included instructional DVD was very helpful.
Bottom line, I love it. close [-]
More than your money's worth
by swordofmorgan from Tri-Cities, Washington, USAFor the record, I am EXTREMELY picky when it comes to microphones. I am always trying to find the best mic for the job. Granted, this does not mean that the best mic for the task at hand is always the... read more [+] most EXPENSIVE mic.

This brings me to the NT2-A. It is an incredibly warm and surprisingly natural sounding mic. It does not overly boost the presence like some mics, nor does it try to lie to you. It is a very accurate, rich, and balanced microphone. I have used in on vocals, as well as employed its figure-8 polar pattern to mid-side acoustic guitars. However I have used it, this mic has not let me down.
Now, would I choose it over a U87, or a c414? Probably not! However, I would choose it over an AT4047 any day of the week. My 5-star rating is for this mic as it competes against others in the similar price range. For the cost, as well as its features and EQ response, it is a remarkable product. close [-]
Big Bang for the buck
by David J. from Auburn, WAThis is a very versatile mic, and it sounds great to my ears. I use it for acoustic guitar, vocals, mic'ing my amp, percussion etc. It sounds great capturing clean strat sounds on my amp, about 2 in... read more [+]ches from the grill. I have also used the multiple patterns for capturing some room reverb (omni) in conjunction with another mic, and the figure 8 pattern for use with another mic to do mid-side recording. Its fun to experiment with. If I had to get rid of all but one of my mics, this would be the one left. I've owned it for about 3 years. close [-]

Really Nice Package
by Kevin Vaught from Mayslick KYI've been recording for over 20 years and have a small arsenal of decent mics. When I saw this on the Sweetwater site I wanted to try it out because I had never used a RODE mic before. WOW!!! This mic... read more [+] is EXCELENT!!!! The added stuff with it were iceing on the cake. I recorded some accoustic guitars, a couple of vocals and the sound quality was just fantastic. I loved it so much I asked Santa to bring me the RODE NT1A package for Christmas. I just hope he does!!! close [-]
