Rode -  K2 Infinite Pattern Tube Condenser Microphone

For recording vocals, guitar amps, bass cabinets, horns, and more, there's nothing like a vacuum-tube large-diaphragm condenser microphone. Some tube condensers sell for many thousands of dollars, but thanks to the Rode K2, engineers on a budget can capture lush, rich recordings with tons of tube-driven character. Though the K2's price tag puts it within reach of project studios, there's nothing "budget" about its performance. Rode is known for studio microphones that deliver incredible low-noise specs, and the K2 is no exception, with self-noise of only 10 dBA thanks to Class A valve circuitry. And not only is the super-quiet K2 great for tracking delicate vocals and acoustic instruments, it can handle a respectable maximum SPL of 162 dB -- so feel free to try your K2 on a cranked-up amp. As you'd expect from any pro tube mic, the K2 has a continuously variable pattern knob that lets you dial in a pickup pattern to suit your source. Try a tight, focused cardioid for a larger-than-life, in-your-face sound -- or twist the dial to an omni pattern for that more natural, you-are-there quality. However you choose to use it, the Rode K2 is an ideal first tube microphone for the small studio looking to expand their sonic palette without breaking the bank.
