Excellent value in a tube microphone

The K2 Variable Pattern Dual 1.0" Condenser Valve Microphone from Rode delivers the sonic quality expected of a Class-A tube microphone. At the heart of the microphone is a hand-selected 6922 twin-triode valve. The valve provides warmth and detail while reproducing a flat, uncoloured frequency response. The K2 boasts a dynamic range of 150 dB. This ensures detailed, accurate pick up of low signals and distortion free, transparent pick up of transients.

Legendary Sound

High-performance specifications (including a maximum SPL of 162dB) are combined with the character and subtleties of the legendary mics of the 1950s to provide a microphone that not only provides world-class vocals but is perfectly at home recording a wide range of instruments both up-close or in a wider ‘room’ capacity.

The RØDE K2 microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.
