Following on from the success of the NT1-A Complete Recording kit, comes the new NT2-A Studio Solution Kit.

Featuring the recording flexibility of the NT2-A, with bonus SM6 shockmount, XLR cable, microphone dust cover & exclusive NT2-A Recording techniques DVD with music producer John Merchant!


The new NT2-A is a professional large capsule (1”) condenser studio microphonewith variable pick-up pattern, variable high pass filter and variable pad.These features provide greater creative control and versatility.

Three 3-position switches located on the mic body provide the freedom to step from Figure 8,Cardioid or Omni polar pick-up patterns; from a flat response to either 80 Hz or 40 Hz high-passfilter and a Pad adjustment of 0 dB, -5 dB or -10 dB attenuation.

The heart of the NT2-A is the Australian designed and manufactured TYPE HF1 dual diaphragmcapsule. The frequency and transient response of this new transducer has been voiced tocomplement today’s modern recording techniques, and yet still evoke the silky smooth characterof the legendary microphones of the 50’s and 60’s. The NT2-A includes a soft pouch and clip.


• The Australian designed and manufactured HF1 1" edge terminated, gold sputtered, dual 5 um diaphragm capsule.

• 3-position variable polar pattern: Omni, Cardioid & Figure 8; all controlled on the mic.

• 3-position variable high-pass filter: Flat, 80 Hz or 40 Hz.

• 3-position variable pad: 0 dB, -5 dB or -10 dB.

• Ultra low noise, transformerless SMT circuitry.

• Wide dynamic range.

• High strength heat-treated steel mesh head.

• Durable satin nickel finish.

• Internal capsule shock mounting.

• Designed and manufactured in Sydney, Australia. 



The NT2-A is designed to operate from phantompower to the P48 standard.The NT2-A will operate between 44V and 52Vapplied with positive polarity to pin 2 and pin 3of the output XLR connector.

Output Impedance

The NT2-A will operate satisfactorily into a loadimpedance as low as 1 kÙ. If a load below this isused, the output signal level will be reduced.The NT2-A output is balanced between pin 2 (hot)and pin 3 (cold). Pin 1 is ground.
