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!

      Comments about RODE NT1A-P Condenser Microphone:

      This Rode NT1-A microphone is one of the best I have recorded with in this price range. I was doing a recording for a singer songwriter friend of mine who needed me to play drums and some percussion on his songs. For all the percussion we recorded right into the mic and it came out crystal clear, even the soft shaker stuff. This pack comes with everything you need, pop filter, shock mount and even a cable!

        Very warm and transparent mic that will stick out in the mix. Great on male and female vocals. I personally have used this Mic setup in a home studio and was extremely pleased. One of the best bang for the buck mic set ups for studio use. Also comes with cable, pop filter and headphones. This is a real hands on product review from Hodari @Sam Ash Lombard

                  What a deal! You get the Rode NT-1, a universal standard, which has a great range and eliminates a lot of noise, plus a shock mount, pop filter, and XLR cable, not to mention a ridiculous 1-year warranty, all for a great low price!

                    Comments about RODE NT1A-P Condenser Microphone:

                    I've used this mic for over 10 years now, long before it came bundled with a heavy duty shockmount and pop filter. Now it even includes a cable! Regardless, this has been one useful and durable mic. I've used it on everything from vocals to guitar amps to percussion. Rode is a great a brand and using this and a couple other of their mics I've determined that they not only sound awesome but they're built solid. My favorite application for this mic by far is for recording dynamic female vocals. I find it always adds a warm touch and smooth yet present transients. If you need a good all around mic, this is one you should look into; I'm sure whatever you use it for, you'll be happy with the results.
