Rode NT2000 overview

  • 1Description

The NT2000 Variable Pattern Studio Condenser Microphone from RODE is a studio-quality, large diaphragm condenser microphone with continuously variable polar patterns. Its polar patterns selection, filter, and pad are conveniently located on the front of the microphone body for ease of use. The gold-sputtered, dual 1" capsule provides low self-noise (7 dB-A) and a maximum SPL of 147 dB (up to 157 dB with pad fully engaged).

Dual Diaphragm Design
A 1" edge terminated, gold sputtered, dual 5uM diaphragm yields a wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz with a max SPL of 147 dB. The dual diaphragm design provides flexible pattern and sensitivity response, making it versatile in any scenario.
Variable Polar Patterns
Cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure 8 patterns are user selectable. Continuously variable variations of each allow tailoring of all patterns resulting in perfect pick up settings with each use.
Variable Attenuation
Continuously variable attenuation adjusts impedance response allowing transparent, distortion free pick-up of transient signals. Attenuation range is user variable between 0 to -10 dB.
Variable High Pass Filter
The NT2000 also features a user variable high-pass filter. This provides flexible user contouring over frequency response curves.

    Rode NT2000 reviews

    NT2000 Variable Pattern Studio Condenser Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable Field Mics Too An excellent a mic for recording quiet events and ambience though it does take some extra effort to mount them in suitable stereo arrays, Unexpectedly, these studio mics also perform very well in outdoor recording applications. Ive found them to be very resistant to humidity and faithful to -35 F. Within traditional wind-protection schemes, they are as wind-resistant as any mid-size diaphragm mics I've used. I find their smooth lower-mid-range frequency response in conjunction with their very low self-noise worth the extra hassle of out-fitting them for the field.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Broke It broke. So why did I give it 5 stars? Because Rode Mics went out of their way to make it right. Before I get into that saga, I will say out right it is a beautiful sounding mic. It has a slight emphasis of the lows and highs and a slight de-emphasis of the mid-range, but I tend to prefer that. I like knowing that I am getting the full spectrum of sound, and then If I choose to run it through the EQ to roll of the lows and highs a little, I can get the exact balance I'm looking for. It's particularly nice knowing that the highs are there should i want them. Now, what truly made my happy with my purchase. I had been using this mic for 3 or 4 years when I realized that I wasn't getting the high frequency clarity that I should be. I did a couple test recordings, compared them to a couple recordings from when I first bought the mic and found that there was a very significant drop in high band frequency response. I went to my paperwork to track down warranty information and was disappointed to find that it only mentioned a one year limited warranty. I decided to contact Rode anyway even though I felt like it was a long shot that they would be willing to help me. I explained my situation, and made it clear that I hadn't mistreated the mic, and in fact that I hardly every even moved it once I got it on my mic stand. A Rode representative got back to me and told me that if I registered the mic on their website I could get access to a ten year warranty that I believe they instituted after I had bought my mic. They wanted the original date of purchase (which I of course could not remember anymore) and the proof of purchase (which I had sense thrown away or lost) to register the mic, but accepted that I could not provide them. There are plenty of electronics companies that would have happily used these as excuses to void the warranty, it you could argue that it wouldn't have been unreasonable, but Rode didn't. They sent me an RA# and address for a service department and had me send it out. Two weeks later I got word that they could not fix my mic and were instead sending me a replacement, brand new and sealed in its box. To me, that is a big deal. Maybe this is the norm in microphones or studio equipment in general, but have dealt with other electronics companies enough to know that this level of customer service is not the norm for everybody. I have since tried to find out if this is a common problem with Rodes, and have found absolutely zero reference to this problem online, so it seems very unlikely that this is a design flaw. The reality is that all electronics will have some non-zero failure rate. It doesn't matter if it's Neumann, MXL, Shure, or Rode, a certain percentage of their units will fail, and I just happened to draw the short straw. What matters is what the manufacturer does about the failures, and Rode's approach was exemplary. I would highly recommend this mic, just make sure you keep your receipt or packing slip, as it will make things easier if something should happen to go wrong.
