Rode NT2A Large Capsule Studio Condenser Microphone
The Rode 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 40Hz or 80Hz 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 yet still evoke the silky smooth character of 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!

The RØDE NT2-A represents an uncommon technical achievement. Many mics today look similar, with 1″ capsules, a mesh head, and a cylindrical body. It is only when you look a little deeper and listen carefully that the major differences become apparent. If there weren’t differences, we would all buy $50.00 mics, and be very happy! Many microphones in the same category sell for thousands of dollars. The difference is that the costlier mics are made with the best parts and precision engineered. While these mics are superb, their smaller production volume makes them expensive. They’re hand assembled with parts bought in small quantities
RØDE has changed the industry by pioneering high quality volume production, investing in more design and tooling using the very finest components and capsules. RØDE still offers the NT2-A at a price that would be impossible using older techniques and technologies.
Designed and manufactured at RØDE’s new $10,000,000.00 facility in Sydney, the NT2-A incorporates the latest innovations in transducer design, coupled to RØDE’s surface mount electronics, offering pure signal quality and the lowest noise levels of any microphones with the same features. RØDE is so proud of the NT2-A that they now offer a full 10-year parts And labor guarantee.
