Designed to provide the basic accessories for shock-mounting a shotgun microphone atop a camera or boompole, this B&H Kit features the Rode NTG2 battery-/phantom-powered shotgun microphone, a shoe/pole shockmount, and a short XLR cable with one right-angled and one straight connector.
The kit addresses the needs of videographers who prefer a cost-effective shotgun microphone setup that stays out of the frame while maintaining smooth, natural audio reproduction and low handling noise. With its XLR output and dual powering modes, the NTG2 mic is well suited for use with professional camcorders, portable audio recorders, and multitrack field recorders, even if they don't supply phantom power.
Rode NTG2 Shotgun Microphone
Capture quality sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project with the Rode NTG2 shotgun microphone. With low handling noise, the ability to endure loud sound sources before distortion, and support for battery or phantom power, the NTG2 offers a versatile, cost-effective solution for recording clean dialogue and sound effects.
The NTG2's elevated sensitivity allows it to produce strong output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG2 delivers consistently clear sound due in part to its gentle rise in high frequencies and its rumble-reducing selectable low-cut filter. The durable and lightweight high-grade aluminum housing is finished in hard-wearing epoxy paint to withstand the stress of location recording.
