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!

Things You Will Get:

  • Microphone
  • Shock Mount
  • Pop Shield
  • Mic Cable
  • Dust Cover
  • Instructional DVD

Great sounding mic. Brings absolute best out of my vocals.

I use primarily for recording vocals. Sounds amazing. My raw vocals now sound every bit as good as any professional studio, both high and low-end, that I've voiced in over the years (and there have been many). I'm kicking myself for waiting this long to upgrade. My **only** gripe is the lack of an indicator/light to show it is receiving phantom power (sometimes I move to the vocal booth before turning on the mic power). But, the great sound is more than worth that occasional walk back to the audio controller. Terrific mic for the price.

I'm a musician and started writing music a couple years ago. Since then, I've learned a lot about what it takes to get a good recording and a good mix and this mic made a huge difference in the sound of my vocals. It's really a perfect mic for an amateur just learning the basics in a home studio because it's a studio quality mic for an amazing price. I honestly didn't expect it to be as good as it was because of the low price tag but it was certainly worth it.

Excellent purchase at a good price foor a near new mic.

Excellent for recording vocals and acoustic guitars. I have not utilized it for recording other instruments so I cannot rate it. Good clear clean sound while the shock-mount provides adequate noise isolation.

Awesomness in a box!

The Rode NT1-A is an industry standard. I had heard all the hype for years and finally found out first hand what all the hype is about. Hook this bad boy up to your console, mic pre or DAW, add a little compression, a pinch of plate reverb and Bam!!! You sir now have a professional quality sounding vocal track. Options are pretty limited when it comes to finding a professional grade Condenser under $300 but the Rode NT1-A is all it's cracked up to be and then some. I have used this microphone on dozens of recordings on everything from vocals, guitar, piano, and even as drum overheads when paired with another NT1-A. Throw in a free shockmount, cable, and pop screen. Oh yeah and a 10 year warranty. What more could you ask for? Pretty much the best bang for your buck is in this box.
