Rode K2 Large Diaphragm Vacuum Tube Condenser Microphone, K2 - The New Sound In Tube Microphones!

RODE's K2 represents an excellent value in a tube microphone, combining incredibly low noise, low distortion and high SPL with the type of fantastic lush sound you'd expect from a high-end tube microphone.

Amazingly Quiet & Versatile!
The ultimate in pure rich tube sound and performance, the Rode K2 also delivers super low self noise (10 dBA), high max SPL (162 dBA), and mega wide dynamic range (150 dB). Rode's K2 features totally variable polar pattern control for an unbeatable combination of flexibility and power. The Rode K2's legendary sound quality inspires those magic takes in even the most demanding recording applications.

Legendary Sound!
RODE carefully constructed the K2 to deliver the sound and character of the prized transducers of the 50 and 60s. They've succeeded, thanks to the K2's HF1 capsule, a true 1" condenser built along the exact lines of the older transducers, but with the reliability of modern technology! Rode hand selects the tubes for the K2 for specification and sound quality. From opera to punk rock and everything in between, the Rode K2 is literally in a class by itself!

Focusrite Purchase

Purchased this item as a gift for my boyfriend as he is currently doing his music. Awesome gift, he loved it, hard to find a good music store on after purchase for this price. Delivery quick. Thank You.

Nomad temperature and humidity meter for guitar

Very good buy. Meter is accurate tested against a more expensive home meter. A plus for acoustic guitar owners concerned about humidity damage to their instruments. Highly recommended for use on higher end acoustic instruments.

Ukulele

Nice, seems to be well made, was a gift for a child

This is The Book they used in band across ACT schools for the '90s kids. It is what it says it is. If you know that book, and you are looking for it, this is where it is. Here you go.
