Product description

The Rode NT1-a is a very silent cardioid condenser microphone for studio use, known for its clear, warm sound. This studio microphone is very versatile. It can be used to record vocals, guitar, and other instruments, but this microphone is also very suitable for keeping a video blog. Due to its popularity, the NT1-a can be found in many studios worldwide. The Rode NT1-a comes with a complete set, including a shock mount, pop filter, XLR cable and a dust cover.



Note: you need to provide a condenser microphone with 48V phantom power. Don't have a device that provides 48V phantom power? Choose a dynamic microphone instead.

Professionele microfoon met een neutraal spectrum.
Review score 5 out of 5 stars

  • Pros:
    Goede microfoon
  • Pros:
    Cardiff pickup
  • Pros:
    Pop filter bijgevoegd
  • Pros:
    Microfoon schokdemper
  • Con:
    Heeft fantoom voeding nodig

Heel goede (semi?) professionele microfoon. Geschikt voor een breed scala aan toepassingen. Qua prijs bijna niet te verslaan. Je hebt wel een aansluiting met fantoom voeding nodig, zonder de voeding werkt de microfoon niet.

  • Pros:
    Beautiful design
  • Pros:
    Sexy sound quality
  • Con:
    Weight (heavy)
  • Con:
    Doesn't come with a traveling case

I am very pleased with this microphone, in fact I bought TWO of them. I have a podcast show and I will use these mics for my next season. You can hear how the mics sound at technoculture-podcast dot com. It's a must for whomever has a limited budget but wants a professional level product.
