Large-Diaphragm True Condenser
This true condenser (externally biased) features a 1″ gold-sputtered diaphragm that provides a broad frequency response, wide dynamic range, and excellent signal-to-noise ratio.
Three Polar Patterns
With three polar patterns selectable on the mic, the NT2-A offers excellent versatility for single-source close miking (cardioid recommended), dual-source pickup (figure-8 recommended), and room ambience capture (omnidirectional recommended).
The frequency and transient response of this transducer has been voiced to complement today’s recording techniques, and yet still evoke the silky smooth character of the legendary microphones of the ’50s and ’60s.
The transformerless JFET output electronics result in an ultralow-noise output (just 7 dBA) while maintaining maximum signal gain.
48V Phantom Power
The NT2-A operates reliably on 24 or 48 VDC phantom power, which can be supplied via most XLR-connected mic preamps, mixer channels, or audio interfaces.
The accessory package includes a studio-grade shockmount with an integrated pop filter, a premium 20′ XLR mic cable, a dust cover, and a downloadable instructional video packed with recording tips.
