The RØDE K2 is a premium valve condenser microphone featuring dual 1” gold sputtered diaphragms. Infinitely variable control of the polar pattern from omnidirectional through cardioid and bidirectional/figure-8 provides the freedom and flexibility to excel in any recording situation.

High-performance specifications (including a maximum SPL of 162dB) are combined with the character and subtleties of the legendary mics of the 1950s to provide a microphone that not only provides world-class vocals but is perfectly at home recording a wide range of instruments both up-close or in a wider ‘room’ capacity.

...sometimes I think it's a compulsive disorder...I'm obsessed with microphones, what can I say... ;) ...yes Max, you're correct, it's a Rode K2 edge-terminated capsule I was comparing with the 3U Audio proprietary C12-style capsule...clearly the 3U Audio capsule is visually unlike the more common edge-terminated capsules originating from China, so based on the design-engineer's own...

Does anyone know the correct timing for a '72 Dodge Charger? It's the 383 4-barrel, not the 440.

Should you ever record vocals in anything but cardiod mode?

Hey, with a Rode K2 you get infinite!:) Well at least you get a very good mic, with variable polar patterns.;) The Chandler TG (with Cardiod and Omni) has an amazing degree of tonal variation. Chris
