Although the body of the 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.

Marriage of Innovation and Tradition
Rode's design engineers approached the NT1 as a marriage of innovation and tradition, starting with the capsule which is incredibly designed. Codenamed the HF6, it is the perfect example of Rode'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.

Incredible Design
In another world-first for Rode, 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.

Rugged Body
Its body is machined from 6061 aluminum 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 Rode to ensure an extremely hard-wearing finish that is resistant to scratches or marks.

KIT Included
The NT1 is supplied with the revolutionary Rode 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.

Awesome Mic


I'm an engineer and this mic is awesome for giving me a blank slate



Great quiet mic


A good starter kit, with a very quiet mic



Awesome Mic!


This is a time proven microphone. It's constructed very well. When paired with a quality cable and preamp, the noise level is super quiet, better than anything I've used before.





Great sound





Great Full / Clear sounding Mic





This guy was super informative and to the point.



I would like to buy another one


Very good



Love this Rode NT1 Kit!


I decided to get the full Sam Ash kit since it was $4 more than the Rode NT1 alone. It comes with a 20' XLR cable and a Samson 28" microphone boom arm. [My one gripe about the boom arm is that the pin at the end of the arm does not fully lock, so if you try to put your mic at an angle, it will rotate. Maybe I got a faulty one.] The Rode NT1 is an amazing mic! I've recorded my VO demo and some narration on it. I have it hooked up to a Scarlett 2i2 and Adobe Audition. If you're doing to get the Rode NT1, just pay the $4 more to get this kit. The arm and cable is worth it! #sweepstakes





It was exactly what I needed in a mix. I'm glad I chose this over th Nt1A. I wish in had bought two. The frequency response is AWESOME💥💥💥💥💥



Great Deal!


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.
