Any reviews yet on the NTG-2

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has come across any reviews yet of the NTG-2?

Doughlas Spotted Eagle how have you found the mic? Are you planning on doing a review at all?

Cheers

Robert

I've done a review, it's in for fact check. It's not at all a bad mic. A step up from the Azden by far, but it's also not the 897 killer it has been purported to be. Nice mic though...for what it's supposed to be, it's a very nice step into this world for Rode.

Interesting take.

If the 897 is no 416, what does that say about the ntg-2?

I have the ntg-1 and ntg-2 here. I'll hopefully be able to get to them shortly.

Regards,

Ty Ford

Ty, I thought the comparison sample you recorded recently with the 897 and 416 was excellent.

A comparative sample of the NTG-2 and the 897 would also be of great help, as these two are supposed to be direct competitors.

Looking forward to the review(s),

You wouldn't happen to have a link to said file with the 897 would you?

It’s on Ty’s site. In the Online Archive section, click Audio Samples and then Audio.
