The new RODE NTG-2 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, designed
for professional applications within the film, video, television and production industries.
The NTG-2 provides a balanced low impedance output stage and operates either
from an internal 1.5 V battery (AA) or 48 V to the P48 standard. 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. The NTG-2
is extremely lightweight making it ideal for mounting directly to video cameras or on
The NTG-2 comes complete with mount and windshield.The windscreen effectively
suppresses wind noise when recording outdoors in moderate conditions.
Broadcast sound quality. Rugged metal construction. Condenser microphone transducer.
Weighing 161 grams approx. . Low noise circuitry. Low handling noise. Supplied with stand
mount and zip pouch. Designed & manufactured in Australia. Full 2 year guarantee.
The NTG-2 is designed to operate from standard P48 phantom power or a 1.5 V Alkaline Battery.
The NTG-2 will operate between 44 V to 52 V applied with positive polarity to pin 2 and pin 3 via
the output XLR connector.
Operation output impedance:
The NTG-2 will operate satisfactorily into a load impedance as low as 1 k§?. If a
load below this is used, the output signal level will be reduced. The NTG-2??s
output is balanced between pin 2 (hot) and pin 3 (cold). Pin 1 is ground.
