The RØDE NT2000 microphone is a studio-quality large diaphragm condenser with seamlessly variable polar patterns. Its polar patterns selection, filter and pad are conveniently located on the front of the microphone body for ease of use.
Audiophile quality surface-mount electronics combined with a gold-sputtered dual 1" capsule provide extremely low self-noise (7dBA) and a maximum SPL of 147 dB (up to 157 dB with pad fully engaged) giving an incredible amount of versatility and ensuring exceptional results.
The RØDE NT2000 microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE's industry leading 10 year warranty.
Certainly, no one looking for a multiple-pattern response and working on a tight budget can afford to ignore it
It's pretty amazing to find a mic that has an expansive feature set like this one, that sounds great (and I mean really great - there are few mics I have found that can compare, even ones costing nearly US$3000) and doesn't break the bank
If you need a good all-round, multi-pattern mic that will do justice to just about anything you ask of it, in addition to delivering pristine vocals, then the NT2000 is one mic you shouldn't miss checking out.
The RØDE NT2000 is one of my go-to mics because of its silky tone and transparent quality. And because it has a variable polar sweep, combined with the variable low frequency rolloff and variable pad, this mic a real "utility player" in the studio.
I'll admit that when I first heard about the NT2000, the inclusion of those extra knobs seemed a little bit "gimmicky" to me. It wasn't until I tried one out in the studio that I realized how practical they really are! In particular, the ability to tailor your own polar pattern is very useful when trying to balance the amount of direct vs. reflected sound you want, or to minimize (or maximize) proximity effect.
When you see the word "transparent" the first thing that comes to mind is how overused that term is. This is the ONLY word that accurately describes RØDE's tour de force in their line. With full adjustable pattern response and filter rolloff it offers versatility other mics haven't figured out yet.
The build is typical "built like a brick outhouse" RØDE style. Beautifully finished with only top flight switchgear all around. To plug one in and hear one is a experience all it's own. Full, airy, unrestricted, rich are only a few words that come close to describing it's output.
