It Broke

By Carl Underguard

from San Jose CA

Comments about Rode Microphones NT2000 Variable Pattern Condenser Microphone:

It broke. So why did I give it 5 stars? Because Rode Mics went out of their way to make it right. Before I get into that saga, I will say out right it is a beautiful sounding mic. It has a slight emphasis of the lows and highs and a slight de-emphasis of the mid-range, but I tend to prefer that. I like knowing that I am getting the full spectrum of sound, and then If I choose to run it through the EQ to roll of the lows and highs a little, I can get the exact balance I'm looking for. It's particularly nice knowing that the highs are there should i want them. Now, what truly made my happy with my purchase. I had been using this mic for 3 or 4 years when I realized that I wasn't getting the high frequency clarity that I should be. I did a couple test recordings, compared them to a couple recordings from when I first bought the mic and found that there was a very significant drop in high band frequency response. I went to my paperwork to track down warranty information and was disappointed to find that it only mentioned a one year limited warranty. I decided to contact Rode anyway even though I felt like it was a long shot that they would be willing to help me. I explained my situation, and made it clear that I hadn't mistreated the mic, and in fact that I hardly every even moved it once I got it on my mic stand. A Rode representative got back to me and told me that if I registered the mic on their website I could get access to a ten year warranty that I believe they instituted after I had bought my mic. They wanted the original date of purchase (which I of course could not remember anymore) and the proof of purchase (which I had sense thrown away or lost) to register the mic, but accepted that I could not provide them. There are plenty of electronics companies that would have happily used these as excuses to void the warranty, it you could argue that it wouldn't have been unreasonable, but Rode didn't. They sent me an RA# and address for a service department and had me send it out. Two weeks later I got word that they could not fix my mic and were instead sending me a replacement, brand new and sealed in its box. To me, that is a big deal. Maybe this is the norm in microphones or studio equipment in general, but have dealt with other electronics companies enough to know that this level of customer service is not the norm for everybody. I have since tried to find out if this is a common problem with Rodes, and have found absolutely zero reference to this problem online, so it seems very unlikely that this is a design flaw. The reality is that all electronics will have some non-zero failure rate. It doesn't matter if it's Neumann, MXL, Shure, or Rode, a certain percentage of their units will fail, and I just happened to draw the short straw. What matters is what the manufacturer does about the failures, and Rode's approach was exemplary. I would highly recommend this mic, just make sure you keep your receipt or packing slip, as it will make things easier if something should happen to go wrong.

      Beautiful Sounding Mic

      By Stuart Liberty

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Rode Microphones NT2000 Variable Pattern Condenser Microphone:

      This Mic records everything I do very well. Very clean and records your source very up front on your track. I run it through a tube pre and it gets even warmer yet stays clear. It picks up voice and acoustic guitar nuances very well. This is the best Mic I have.

      Love This Mic

      By Larry

      from Lexington, KY

      Comments about Rode Microphones NT2000 Variable Pattern Condenser Microphone:

      I purchased this mic about 2 years ago. It is rock solid. you will absolutely love this for a vocal mic, awesome for acoustic gtr too. Dial in a little Omni for vocals, pad about 3 or 4 and get a great beautiful sound. This is a hidden gem.. Far more mic than the price rivals the best in the busines.. I have recorded 2 albums using it on all the vocals.. Will not be sorry.. and the 10 warranty is tops.

      All the mic you will ever need

      By Doctor McFarland

      from Smyrna

      Comments about Rode Microphones NT2000 Variable Pattern Condenser Microphone:

      From vocals to amps to drums you will not find a better mic than the NT2000. I had a drum session the other night that I used this mic as an overhead along with an AT4040 and I can't get over the sound that I got. Clear, precise and natural sound. The features are a huge plus and great for sculpting the sound. Thanks Rode for this great product.

      An NT2-A on Steroids

      By dcisive

      from Salt Lake City, Utah

      Comments about Rode Microphones NT2000 Variable Pattern Condenser Microphone:

      If you have used or like the NT2-A from Rode, you can't help but love this one. It is essentially a NT2-A with the completely variable pattern adjustment as well as the continuous adjustable rolloff adjustments added on. I had one and indeed it was in many ways the NT2-A's twin. I actually sold this one for a K2 as I felt it was too much duplication of sound character, and wanted something different. Otherwise if you don't have a NT2-A, but want a top performing non tube mic THIS IS IT!

      Just buy it!

      By Mario G.-XaHLK

      from Detroi,MI.

      Comments about Rode Microphones NT2000 Variable Pattern Condenser Microphone:

      Just got the NT200 all I can say is wow! I never sounded this good before. Vocals cut through the mix, but remain silky smooth. Haven't tried it on sax yet, but this thing is incredible. Easily worth every penny.
