There are very few items in today's machine manufactured world that can claim to be 'Hand Made', and yet this is true of every RODE microphone.
RODE have a state of the art manufacturing plant in Sydney, Australia that is specially built for their needs using incredible cutting edge equipment, but that ultimately allows their engineers to hand-craft each mic.
RODE are the only microphone manufacturer to offer a 5 to 10 year warranty across their entire range of products. They know they can offer a 10 year warranty because they are confident that their microphones will last a lifetime, thanks to the meticulous manufacturing process that only RØDE employs. You won't find any bad solders caused by an overworked, underpaid plant worker on their products!
So when you buy a RØDE microphone you are also buying their product service guarantee - their customer support teams are available around the clock to provide insight on pre-sales questions, technical support on product issues, and even general recording advice.
The NT2-A carries on the tradition forged by the now legendary RØDE NT2. A professional large 1" capsule studio microphone incorporating three-position pick-up patterns, pad and high pass filter switches conveniently located on the mic body.
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.
