Description

The NT2-A carries on the tradition forged by the now legendary R˜DE NT2 with 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 50s and 60s. These features provide the flexibility and superlative audio characteristics that make the NT2-A one of the most versatile condenser mics available. This Bundle version also includes the SM6 shockmount with detachable pop filter - a high-quality suspension shockmount. It provides isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. It also includes a removable pop shield with two axis of adjustment and a telescopic arm for ultimate application versatility, 6m of XLR cable, and a dust cover. FEATURES Large 1" gold sputtered capsule On-body control of polar pattern, HPF and PAD Three-position variable polar pattern - Omni, Cardioid or Figure 8 Three-position variable High-Pass Filter - Flat, 40Hz or 80Hz Three-position PAD - 0dB, -5dB or -10dB Ultra low noise, transformerless surface mount circuitry Wide, dynamic range Internal capsule shockmounting

I can add to this - I have used both the U87 and the NT2A extensively - I wouldnt be able to say one was better than the other. The U87 has a nice wooden box though ;)

One to rule them all - mid range condenser mic help

...can see demos where condensers are used for nearly everything and results are quite good - for example the Rode nt2-a demo. I am aware there is a lot of post-production effort in this demo, yet one can easily think a mic like this should work +- well for regular situations. Lets say I will...
