Product description

The Rode NT2-a is a very quiet condenser microphone for studio use. This studio microphone is known for its detailed, neutral character. What sets this microphone apart is the possibility to switch the directional characteristics between cardioid, bidirectional, and omnidirectional. This means the NT2-a can be used in a variety of ways. To record speech for example, or singing, guitar play, and other instruments. There's a reason the Rode NT2A can be found in many studios around the world. This condenser microphone comes with a complete accessory set, including a shock mount, a pop filter, an XLR cable, and a dust cover.



Note: you need to provide a condenser microphone with 48V phantom power. Don't have a device that provides 48V phantom power? Choose a dynamic microphone instead.
