Video taken directly from Rode Microphones very own YouTube watchlist compiled of famous YouTube videos using their very own microphones. This video shows the now, super star Conor Maynard using the NT2-A to record most of his covers including the cover that got him noticed and signed by Parlophone (EMI). Conor does not specifically say that he uses the NT2-A but his videos do show the NT2-A as his initial microphone.more
I love this! I have recorder more than 3 EPs with this one for now and it's great for different vocal styles (I have worked with postpunk, industrial rock, metal, electronic and country music). Add this to a nice preamp and you will be satisfied. One of the best solutions for a home|small studio on my opinion.
The Rode NT2A is a relatively cheap microphone, compared to microphones such as the Neumann U87, while still achieving great sound capturing, and having many polar patterns. If you've got a good amount of money in your pocket, purchase this, and you will not be disappointed.
This microphone is the $200 - $300 dollar range price. I consider that this microphone offers a great value for the money. The first thing you'll notice is that is quite heavy, the multi-pattern allows you to use this microphone for several applications like recording a group of people singing a capella or record a guitar amplifier, or of course vocals. I think it records a sound with a huge spectrum of frequencies and very consistent on the lower frequencies.
I will definitely recommend it
Amazing for recording acoustic instruments, foley samples, and can record a variety of singing voices nicely. I tried a slightly lower-priced Seinheiser which sounded very tinny, brittle. I've owned several Rode-NT2a's now. Suspension mount snapped annoyingly on this latest one but purchased a budget alternative and it is perfect. You can replace the mount with Rode's dedicated suspension mount if you want.
