Rode NT2-A Microphone Details

The Rode NT2-A carries on the tradition forged by the now legendary RODE NT2. A professional large capsule (1") 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 NT2-A 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.

The NT2-A's variable controls allow switching between Omni, Figure 8, and Cardioid polar patterns. The three position high-pass filter provides a flat response or an 80Hz and 40Hz high pass filter to be selected. Finally the microphones Pad can be switched between 0 dB, -5dB and -10dB.

What We Think - Rode NT2-A Review

"I recently rounded out a pair of the RODE NT2-A (I had owned a single NT2-A for years) and I sure am glad that I did! This really is a fantastic multi-purpose microphone for the studio. It has just the right amount of character to help really "flatter" a source without losing a sense of realism and overall clarity. I really do like my pair over a drum kit. Like the rest of the RODE large diaphragm line, the NT2-A is a beast to hold in your hand - this sucker is stout! RODE could never be accused of making a fragile microphone. Basically, the NT2-A sounds great, is very versatile and durable, and won't break the bank."

pretty good mic December 9, 2011
Reviewer: Steve P. from St. Louis, MO United States  
I have used this on vocals primarily.  It provides a nice full sound.  Its sounds pretty neutral which is good for some applications.  The variable patterns are nice options to have available.  The mic is well built, comes with a shock mount, looks like front ends kit comes with a little more.

decent mic, but nothing special September 27, 2010
Reviewer: Thomas Szy from Hellertown, PA United States  
Overall i would say i was a little disappointed with the NT2a.  I bought the NT2a to be an all purpose studio workhorse.  For my taste, i think this mic sounds a bit bright and thin. It doesn't sound bad, i just think there are much better options out there for the price.  The nice thing about the mic is the different polar patterns included for the price.

Warm, clean, and sturdy June 23, 2010
Reviewer: Gabriel from Seattle, WA United States  
This is a classy-sounding, classy-looking, well-made mic. It's nice and heavy, the various switches don't produce any mechanical noise, and it's quiet-as-a-whisper. The cable fits in nice-n-snug for no hum and a clean signal, as is always the case with Rodes. It provides "big classy sound" on every source. You'll definitely want to use a pop-filter for your vocals with this one though. This one won't handle the pops well at all. To keep the price reasonable, this doesn't come with a shockmount and includes a simple vinyl bag rather than a goofy suitcase.

Rode NT2-A June 12, 2010
Reviewer: Peter Young  
The best all around mics you can get for the money. I have paid through the nose for lots of mics, but these get used in my studio every day. Excellent sound quality and built like artillery shells. If you're running a budget studio, pay a little more for a pair of these and you won't be sorry. If you're a pro, get a pair and save the wear and tear on your best mics. These can take a beating and sound great doing it.

High End without the price tag March 26, 2009
Reviewer: Lee Rothman from Salt Lake City, Utah  
Enough can't be said regarding the overall quality and value involved with this mic. It is not only superbly well constructed allowing for every detail, but it is one of the quietest mics (non existent self noise) of all the microphones available in the world bar NONE. Many like to say a microphone will have a "character". Well if this one has one, it is neutrality. Overall it does what it is told. If you get up front and personal with it you are rewarded with a rich warmth only a fine tube mic can equal. If you stand back a bit it still picks up the air of the singers vocal character. The variable pattern is a plus where as the build quality will take it and never let you down. If you want the performance of a $3000 Neumann and don't wish to lay out the cash, this mic will get you there nicely. Having owned several Neumann's and AKG's top mics I feel I can say that without hesitation.
