Overview

To celebrate 15 years of the RODE NT1 and NT1-A, RODE Microphones has created a revised NT1-A package including a premium shockmount, pop filter, cable, microphone dust cover, and a bonus instructional DVD. Originally released in 1995, the RODE NT1 mic is found in professional and project studios the world over. Its combination of clarity, warmth, extended dynamic range and high SPL capability made it an instant classic with professional engineers and home recording artists alike.

Following heavy investment in precision manufacturing, RODE revised the microphone capsule and electronic design of the NT1, resulting in only 5dB SPL (A-weighted per IEC651) of self noise. Released in 2003 as the NT1-A, it has since become one of the world's biggest selling and most recognizable condenser microphones. Now RODE has truly made the NT1-A the complete recording solution by including a premium shockmount with integrated pop filter, high-quality 6m (20') XLR cable, microphone dust cover and even a bonus instructional DVD. Presented by RODE founder and company president, Peter Freedman, The NT1-A Studio Secrets DVD features a range of tips and techniques to help RODE NT1-A owners get the most from their new microphone.

A must have in your collection

By BobV

from Kearny New Jersey

Comments about Rode Microphones NT1-A Cardioid Condenser Microphone Bundle:

I cannot believe the build quality of this mic and more important the quality of it's sound. Believe it or not this is the only mic in my collection that I don't have to EQ a vocal much or even EQ it at all. This mic is so clean and clear even singing right up close into it. I believe this mic will bennefit any type of voice or instrument. I haven't used it to record accoustic guitar yet and will post a review of the results. Don't let the price fool you on this one. It's not made cheap and it certainly doesn't sound cheap.

GREAT QUALITY

By Izzy Tha PROducer

from Birmingham,AL

Comments about Rode Microphones NT1-A Cardioid Condenser Microphone Bundle:

This microphone is really,really good.It has a great sound,the pop filter/shockmount is very beautiful, and the cable cord is perfect.The only problem I'm having is the mastering.Because a high quality vocal DOES NOT go with a low quality instrumental.This is professional microphone,and in order for your music to sound the best it can you have to have professional software and/or equipment.But other then that, WAYYY worth it.

WOW, Low end to spare

By Nelson Morris

from St.Petersbug, FL

Comments about Rode Microphones NT1-A Cardioid Condenser Microphone Bundle:

This mic was recommended by a Voice Over coach for my deep male voice. Oh, does it fit the bill. I've used the Rode NT1000 and thought that was a great mic, but I LOVE, the NT1-A. The bundle works perfectly, mounted on a studio boom arm in my home studio. As far as the packaging. That came to me from Guitar Center all beat up. (the inner box not the outer box) I almost sent it back because it looked used. I called support they said they would send out another one but, once I plugged it in, No Way was that mic going back. Now I can, audition for those movie trailers.:)

GREAT Microphone!

By Jacob Abrahamson

from West Lafayette, IN

Comments about Rode Microphones NT1-A Cardioid Condenser Microphone Bundle:

I recently purchased this microphone after researching many different microphones. It's awesome to use if your on a budget, but still want a quality microphone for your home studio. Vocals are noticeably different then what they sounded like using my previous, cheaper microphone. This microphone is ideal for a home studio. Also, you can't beat the free shock mount, pop filter, and XLR cable, which are all high quality. Also, if it is necessary with the mixing board or interface you have, pay the extra 40 dollars for the Sterling PHP Phantom Power supply, because it's necessary for the mic to be powered. GET THIS MICROPHONE!

Great deal, great mic

By Loko Hank

from Evansville, IN

Comments about Rode Microphones NT1-A Cardioid Condenser Microphone Bundle:

It's hard to believe you get so much for the money - the mic, a shock mount, pop filter and drawstring pouch. The high quality mic alone would worth the price. It's by far the best I've tried in it's price range. I use it plugged in directly to a USB interface (GuitarRig Session I/O with phantom power) with a tube preamp simulator and vocal compressor (both by Voxengo) and it sounds great on Logic Express and GarageBand. It's slighty crisp, but can easily be EQed and warmed up with room to spare. The low end is solid too. This mic picks up everything, I bet you could even hear a mouse fart. I bought this to replace the cheaper, thin-sounding Behringer B2 Pro and I haven't regretted it once.

One Great Mic!

By Jim Stroud

from Lexington, Ok

Comments about Rode Microphones NT1-A Cardioid Condenser Microphone Bundle:

Don't let the price fool you this is a very good microphone. I have compared to my Neumann TLM49 and it holds its own just a bit brighter and has more handling noise (use the shock mount included). You can get great results with this if used properly. As far as I am concerned it is best in its class of budget microphones.

ALL YOU NEED!

By Jon Weidenbacher

from Roseville mn

Comments about Rode Microphones NT1-A Cardioid Condenser Microphone Bundle:

I bought this mic a few months ago to use at home in conjunction with my Alexis Docking station/IPAD set up at home for my own little recording deal. It's a great mic. I use it with Garage Band and It can pick up sounds in other rooms like people talking quietly but with the noise gate on in Garage Band you tweak that to pick up as little as you like. It looks cool but bottom line is, it really does work better than anything I've ever had. Well worth the 229 for the bundle I paid.

    Comments about Rode Microphones NT1-A Cardioid Condenser Microphone Bundle:

    So after looking for a new home studio mic (I have the AKG perception 220 and it did not do me well for vocals) I was going back and forth between Neuman 102 and This. Obviously the Neuman is highly recommended and expensive. But this one I was very surprised with. I needed a mic that didn't capture all the sibilance of a vocal take and this did just that. A very true and honest take. I recommend anyone looking for a good intro mic to a home studio, tracking, youtube videos, blogs, whatever, this is a great place to start.

        Don't have a very sophisticated recording setup at home but this is my prime microphone. Great for vocals, drum overheads, amp miking....very versatile. Very clean and quiet. Can handle a load too. As with all condensers, you need the 48v phantom power.

        If I were to fault Rode for anything it would be that it comes with a small bag for the mic but the big box it comes in is needed for the pop filter/ shock mount assembly. A little inconvenient but for the price this mic can't be beat.

            Back when I used a poor quality microphone, I assumed my vocals sounded poorly because of the mic, but this microphone made me realize I really can't sing. Luckily I'm more into beat making. This mic is great though, and I love the shockmount.

            Comments about Rode Microphones NT1-A Cardioid Condenser Microphone Bundle:

            This mic is so cool. While I am still working on the properties, I must say I am impressed with the sound and the clarity. It makes my voice over work so much easier. My voice sounds full and clear. Editing is a breeze. I am still in the beginning stages of using the mic so that is why I only gave it 4 stars. Placement is everything. This mic picks up sounds like you wouldn't believe, so adjusting the gain and shortening the distance really pays off. While the box looked a little crumpled, I found everything inside (my box was missing the dvd) to be in perfect condition. But, I'm still playing with it!
