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!

Things You Will Get:

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

A Must Have Mic!

5

This microphone bundle right here is an amazing pack. I purchased the NT1-A and haven't changed mics since. It has a really good response and the vocals that come in are true and have a great quality behind them. This microphone is so versatile that you can record acoustic guitars through them and still have excellent quality. Another cool bonus is that it comes with a shock mount, a cable, and even a pop filter! For any rank of musician this is a good bundle to purchase.

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 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.

The RODE NT1A-P is classic condenser. Fantastic for studio applications. Ideal for vocals of all styles and ranges. Can be used to as a mic cabinet to get some really interesting tones with a clean guitar. Superb looks and the build quality is of a sturdy nature. Great as a first mic or a nice addition to any collection. This is a real hands on product review from Christian @ Sam Ash Columbus.

What's Not To Love?

The NT1-A is a very cool, entry level large diaphragm condenser mic. The low self noise means it can be used for very effective layering effects and can really be cranked at the gain state to hear every nuisance of a quiet performance, but the SPL Handling to be used as cymbal overheads. Take this flexibility and combine it with a 10 year warranty from Rode and what's not to love? This is a real hands-on review from Ryan @ Sam Ash, Phoenix, AZ.

Not much more is needed to complete this package. With everything you need you will be recoding tracks in no time. The large 1" capsule is sensitive enough to pick up a wide range of frequencies and with the included DVD resource you will know how to place the mic correctly. This is a real hands-on product review from David @ Sam Ash Ontario.

The Mic Youve Been Looking For

4

I'd heard a lot of positive hype about the NT1A and claims of it being the "quietest mic in the market". I was very much surprised by the low-cost and comparisons to microphones in a much higher price range, this mic is amazing. Not even a hiss with the gain cranked to 10 on a roland 24 track digital workstation. The pickup on the NT1A is incredible. it will pick up even the quietest whisper! Great mic for the price!
