The NT1 is a revolutionary new 1" diagphram condenser microphone from RØDE.

Although the body of the new NT1 closely resembles the NT1-A, the microphone has been completely redesigned from the ground up, with the only shared component being the mesh grille.

RØDE’s design engineers approached the NT1 as a marriage of innovation and tradition, starting with the capsule which is a completely new design. Codenamed the HF6, it is the perfect example of RØDE’s fusion of artistic design approaches and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, and features a sound signature reminiscent of the famous microphones of old while at the same time exhibiting extremely low noise.

It has been developed with a focus on detailed midrange response, coupled with silky smooth high frequencies, and warm, round, bass reproduction to make the NT1 an absolute standout in its class.

In another world-first for RØDE, the transducer itself is suspended inside the microphone using Rycote’s industry-leading Lyre system, minimizing external vibrations at the capsule level. The capsule is then married to high-grade electronics that have been designed to provide the lowest noise level of any studio microphone available. The NT1 is an incredibly quiet microphone, measuring only 4.5dBA of self-noise.

Its body is machined from 6061 aluminium and then nickel plated for resistance against corrosion. Finally it is coated in a durable, military-grade ceramic layer, using advanced electrostatic application techniques developed by RØDE to ensure an extremely hard wearing finish that is resistant to scratches or marks.

The NT1 is supplied with the revolutionary new RØDE SMR shock mount. Featuring a unique double-Lyre suspension system, the SMR enhances the existing superior vibration cancellation of Rycote’s Lyre system by using a smaller inner Lyre to act as a tensioning element. This maintains each Lyre in the neutral position where it is most efficient at cancelling vibration. The SMR’s removable all-metal pop filter is as effective as it is visually striking, providing an integrated solution for plosive protection that is easily washable and designed to last as long as the shock mount and microphone.

The NT1 is designed and made in Australia, and is covered by RØDE's industry-leading 10 year warranty.

Great Deal!

Comments about Rode Nt1 Cardioid Condenser Microphone Kit:

Great deal for the money! This comes with a shock mount, pop filter, and not to mention a great mic! This microphone is pretty high quality for the price. It is made in Australia and is build to last, and if it does break there is a 10 year warranty! The song of this microphone also blows me away. It isn't too sensitive and truly portrays the sound quality of a voice, guitar or any other instrument.

        The Rode NT1 has it all for an entry level microphone. Great Price, Great Sound, and a Sleek Design. Rode has always been known for making quality microphones and to get something by them for under $300 is a steal. A must have for any musician that is looking to start recording and is on a budget.

        The RODE NT1 sounds better than condenser microphones at double the price. When used on vocals the sound has good low-end body, clear midrange and a nice warm shimmery quality on the top end. It also sounds good on guitar cabinets. The package comes with a shock mount and pop filter making this a perfect kit for the home studio.

        This is a great bundle that will appeal to the home studio level consumer all the way up to the more professional studio veterans. The clarity and richness of the Rode NT1 is something rarely seen in it's price range and in fact resembles condenser microphones more than twice the price. I've used this mic on everything from vocals to acoustic guitars and even an on the spot quick solution for a room mic,.

        The all in one design made setup a breeze and I am loving the cool sleek windscreen. Rode has always made quality products and this one did not disappoint,

          Vibration beware. The build quality of this mic is unmatched. Its machined from aluminum!! The shock mount is out of the world. Designed to resist the most horrendous vibration, it gently cradles the mic, while preventing any pesky vibration from effecting your tracks. Great for many vocal styles. A fantastic addition to any mic locker.

              Comments about Rode Nt1 Cardioid Condenser Microphone Kit:

              I try hard to not give out 5/5 Star Ratings unless they are deserved - this mic deserves it.

              The Rode NT1 Kit is my absolute favorite, vocal mic for under $400, bar none. It is the quietest sef-noise mic available, has a 10 year manufacturer warranty, one of the best all metal pop filters you can buy and the coolest shock mount available.

              The Rycote Shock Mounts deserve their own 5/5 Star Reviews. No longer are we forced to use hair ties to hold up our heavy, sensitive condenser mics. The rubberized plastic suspension allows for incredibly durable and incredibly effective shock insulation. This NT1 is not only shock insulated with the included shock mount, the capsule is internally shock mounted with Rycote as well!

              The honesty and flatness of this mic cannot be overstated. This gives a very clean and pure sound that can either be layered, for a classic David-Bowie vocals feel with no self noise to get in the way, or tweaked and manipulated in pre or post production with plug-ins pre-amps or anything else without the pre-eq'd mic capsule getting in the way.

              This is the best option you can but for an under $400 studio-grade vocal mic.

              This is a real hands-on review from Ryan @ Sam Ash, Phoenix, AZ.

                  The NT-1 comes complete with a shock mount and an all metal pop filter. The aluminum body can withstand everyday use and is great for your studio. An XLR cable and phantom power is all you need to make this thing sing. This is a real hands-on product review from David @ Sam Ash Ontario.
