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 sounding mic

What can I say sweetwater always delivers on time and has great products. I was looking for a mic for my studio that wouldn't break the bank but still be a great mic and the rode nt2a is just that. I love how the lowes sound lush and full and the highes are smooth without the harshness that some of my other mics have. I am a happy customer!

An excellent studio workhorse of a Mic

I own many microphones and I have tried them all. I have to say honestly after listening to this particular Mic I am excited to do vocals. I never really found a mic that fits my voice, where I am comfortable singing a song without feeling intimidated by the microphone. This mic seem to capture all the harmonics and I was very satisfied with the sound. I put this particular mic through a universal audio 610 Mk2, I must tell you the sound was astonishing. Another reason that I really enjoy this microphone is, my wife has a very unique voice and it has always been hard for me to capture the true nature of her sound. I was really delighted to hear her voice through this microphone it really made a difference. If you're looking for great Mic that can deliver great sound at an affordable price then look no further, the RODE NT 2A is definitely the way to go.

Big Bang for the buck

This 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 inches 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.

Detail, beauty, and precision.

Presently 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 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.

Sweetwater Advice

Steve Ploense

When looking for a microphones for my project studio, I had two requirements: It needed to be both versatile and affordable. The Rode NT2-A exceeded both those qualifications! With three polar patterns, pads, and a high pass filter, I can record everything from voice to guitar cabinets to drum overheads. It's made in Australia, and the manufacturing is top-notch. It comes with a shockmount and pop filter which are also phenominal. In this price range, it's difficult to find a better value.
