RØDE K2 Microphone
RØDE K2 Microphone

Large-Diaphragm Multi-Pattern Mic

Reminiscent of classic studio mics from the 1950s and ‘60s (but a heck of a lot quieter), the RØDE K2 premium valve condenser microphone features dual one-inch gold-sputtered diaphragms and a welded, heat-treated mesh head. It’s great for vocals, acoustic guitars, and hand percussion, providing a warm, even tone and wide dynamic range. For freedom in any recording environment, you’ll have variable control of omnidirectional, cardioid, and bidirectional/figure-8 polar patterns. The selected 6922 twin-triode valve is equipped with class A circuitry, and can be easily replaced without soldering.
