About Rode Microphones NTG-2

NTG-2 Dual Powered Directional Condenser ...

The new RODE NTG-2 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, designed for professional applications within the film, video, television and production industries.

A wide bandwidth and controlled polar response coupled with low noise SMT electronics, makes the NTG-2 the perfect choice for film, video engineering and voice-over work.

It's ok, but was hoping for better sound


from New York  -  Experienced

I shot a video, used this shotgun mic right over our heads, didn't really pick up that much sound.


Great product.


from Ocala Florida  -  Experienced

Though this device captures sound great, it is very fragile. If you drop it, you can probably damage it. So just be careful in handling the microphone. The good thing about this microphone is it can record very loud sounds with little or no reverb. That in itself is worth the buy.




from Columbia, SC  -  Professional Musician

This mic works great for voice over tracks. And I was very surprised at how well it records violin. If you have ever tried to record on violin, then you know how difficult it is to get a good sound on violin. This mic (surprisingly) works great for that.
