Competes comparitvely with much higher priced shotgun mics,
10 January 2012
Summary: As an Indie Film Maker I needed a Shot Gun Mic that was Broadcast quality, without spending thousands of dollars. YouTube has some great videos on what the Rode NTG-2 sounds like, after a ton of research I decided to spend a little more for a Rode mid-price-range Shotgun Mic as a production Investment. RODE Delivers! At just under $300 dollars Retail you have a great sounding microphone.
Perfect for a dj when working an outdoor wedding. I LOVE this mic!!!

Summary: Worked perfectly for an outdoor wedding with the added dead cat wind protection. Was able to sit this mic 3 feet behind the Bride / Groom and it picked up their words without a problem! Best investment this DJ ever made!
Summary: I am a busy person. And the fact that I am actually taking some time to post this review must mean something. So let me get straight to the point: It is a great microphone. The sound, as most Rode microphones are, crisp, clear, and clean. It delivers a nice warm tone and if added to an interface like the H4N.... The Rode NTG-2 is phenomenal! The aluminum body structure is also a plus to the microphone. It is also longer than the Rode NTG-1 for easier use when booming.
Summary: Very solid construction and pristine quality recording. I've used the mic now both in studio and on locations and it never fails to impress. I'm looking forward to having it in my arsenal for a long time to come...
Summary: 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.
