The RDE K2 is the result of designing and building 1000s of valve microphones. The K2s HF-1 capsule is the pinnacle of transducer technology. The sound quality combines modern high-end specifications with the character and subtleties of the legendary 50s mics.
Infinitely variable control of the K2s polar patterns provides the freedom and flexibility to excel in any recording situation. The K2 is another example of RDEs commitment to building quality studio microphones to meet the exacting standards demanded by todays professionals.
