Rode NTG2

I really enjoyed putting this microphone to work on a film trailer on an open set with the actors performing their lines and capturing every word with clarity. It has made working on a set an ease and allowed for profession results without the high end costs.

Voice over

Great price. Excellent sound! I bought this mic to take on the road. But after hearing it I use on a daily basis. If you do voice over this is a great mic to add to your locker.

Love it!

I've used a few "high end" shotgun mics in the past including the famous sennheiser mkh 416. this mic is comparable to the audio quality of more expensive mics, in my opinion, with a very low noise floor.

I am going to say this will Make more noise than the studio version NT1-A but you cab focus on your vocals from about 30"/ 76 centimeter and have A very clean focus on yourself and Guitar. Just put the mic down and point it up at the neck joint and your mouth at once. I like it because it gives you freedom with back ground cut while you play and sing. J.D.S.
Music background: too much to mention.

sweet, inexpensive short shot

Lightweight, self or phantom powered, sharp sounding short shotgun mic. Sound is just a bit crisp, but for a fraction of the Sennheiser price, what the heck. A great addition to my on-the-go gear.

Sweetwater Advice

Dave Brow

This is the affordable shotgun mic to use for voice-over applications. It's great at eliminating room characteristics, which helps it to capture clean announcer and dialog tracks. It's also excellent for ADR and in the field.
