Rode NT2-A Large-diaphragm 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 have been voiced to complement today's modern recording techniques yet still evoke the silky smooth character of legendary microphones of the '50s and '60s. And just to make the NT2 A Studio Solution a home run, RODE is including a shock mount, cable, dust cover, and tutorial DVD! What an incredible deal!
