The RODE NT1-A has become an industry standard delivering the warmth, extended dynamic range, clarity and high SPL capability usually only featured by some of the most expensive microphones.

So you’re on a budget but you need a microphone that sounds way more expensive than its affordable price tag? Well, look no further than the Rode NT1a.

Set in a tight cardioid pattern, the Rode NT1a embodies all the characteristics of a high-end, expensive studio microphone, but leave it to the fine folks at Rode to deliver outstanding quality in an affordable package.

The large 1” (25mm) capsule protected behind the sturdy wire-mesh grille has a gold-plated diaphragm. It exhibits extremely low self-noise (5dB), has a wide dynamic range and handles high SPL (137 dB), making it an excellent choice for a variety of miking applications. The internal capsule is shock-mounted within the mic itself, making handling or vibration noise minimal.

As part of Rode’s Complete Vocal Recording Solution Package, which includes the NT1a in a satiny nickel finish, a Rode premium-quality shockmount with integrated pop screen, a quality 20’ XLR mic cable, a mic dust cover and a Rode instructional DVD, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better one-stop solution at this price.

With its wide dynamic range, silky warm characteristic, devastating good looks, super-quiet operation and complete package of useful accessories, the Rode NT1a Complete Vocal Recording Package is a great entry to the world of professional recording mics. Or just add it to your existing mic locker for another flavor… a tasty one at that!

  • Microphone

        Comments about RODE NT1A-P Condenser Microphone:

        Wow is this mic quiet!!! Besides that, there's not a whole lot to say other than it looks awesome, it has an amazing sound, warm lows, clean highs and prominant mids. If you're looking for a great radio or recording mic, consider saving your money and getting this Rode. Such an amazing mic at such an affordable price. Sometimes the pricetag isn't everything.

          Want to get a great sounding mic without spending double the price? RODE is always a sure thing. This NT1A is the worlds quietest microphone (lowest self-noise). Add versatility along with pop filter, shock mount & a cable and you have a sure winner. Great for drum overheads, acoustic instruments & vocals.

            Comments about RODE NT1A-P Condenser Microphone:

            So.. the NT1... it's been around for a while... and with good reason. There is not another mic out there... especially in this price range... that even TOUCHES this one in sound style and quality. It's always funny when pro studios keep a $200 mic around in case they can't find the sound on a $2000 mic... lol! Simply a classic... and isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

            I am a Sam Ash Employee in Clearwater, FL... and I love this mic!

              Warm clear sound was most convincing and effective for my vocals for my latest project.
              Great price for a great mic.
              I highly recommend this one!

                This is a good mic for home recording. It's quiet, clear, and comes with a shock mount/pop filter system and a mic cable--basically all the accessories you need except the mic stand! This is what I consider a general purpose mic and will sound good on pretty much any voice or instrument. For the price, nothing beats the NT1A.
