      Popular condenser mic with shock mount, integrated pop filter, 20' XLR cable, dust cover, and instructional DVD.

      To celebrate 15 years of the RØDE NT1 and NT1-A, RØDE 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 RØDE 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, RØDE 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 RØDE 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 RØDE founder and company president, Peter Freedman, The NT1-A Studio Secrets DVD features a range of tips and techniques to help RØDE NT1-A owners get the most from their new microphone.

      Features

      • Large 1" (25mm) capsule with gold-plated diaphragm
      • Cardioid polar pattern
      • Self noise of only 5dB (A)
      • Ultra low noise, transformerless surface mount circuitry
      • Wide dynamic range

        Simply can't be beat in this price range. It's a good mic, and not just "for the money" either.
        My college had a couple sets of these and I liked their smooth sound so much I bought two. I use them predominatnly to record orchestral and/or choral music in a church, meaning that low self-noise (they test at about 6dB, which is waaaay low) is a huge plus -- no hissssssss in the quiet parts. The included shockmount in the package is a huge plus, too, although the pop filter assembly is a bit cheesy if I'm honest -- with the filter plus mic, it gets quite heavy for the little hinge that moutns to the mic stand, so you either have to crank down on the wingnut or accept that it will droop.
        Rode build quality is very impressive. The nickel will probably show scratches easily...
        The best thing about this mic is that for the price you're getting a fantastically quiet large-diaphragm condenser that blows any others at this price range out of the water. It's not a flat frequency response, though, as it's got a bit of a bright personality with a boost at and above 2khz.

        Decent all around mic for a home studio on a budget, but Rode customer service is terrible. My unreliable rating is for service, not the mic itself. Glitchy web site, and you can expect very long wait times for responses to support requests. In light of this, I would not purchase again. I will try a different company.

            This package is exactly what you need if you're either getting started, or have been recording for years like I have. Sound quality is great, mic is versatile and adapts easily to different vocals/instruments, it comes with everything you need to get going (except a mic stand, but you really should have one of those by now). Highly recommended.

            Solid mic for the price for sure! Can't go wrong for acoustics/vocals. That's all I have used it for thusfar, and it is in fact pretty nice for the cost especially with extra accessories included. Highly recommended for musician's on a budget. Get a lot of bang for the buck

                I've had this mic for a little over 7 years now. It's been great. As we all know, this hobby gets very expensive so I wanted to make sure this mic would last. I use this for just about everything. You can record above the drum kit, you can mic the guitar with very clear sounds, vocals are crisp and wood winds sound fantastic.

                I would say either spend a grand at least on a mic, or get this one.

                  I got this mic last Christmas, and have since recorded an EP and a bunch of demos with it. It's obviously not the best mic for every application, but for someone on a tight budget you can definitely use this worry free on most sources.

                  Buy it, you won't regret it.

                  I've had this for a couple months now and am really happy I have it. the sound is clean and clear. next to the really cheap mics I previously had this thing sound so clear and articualte. I feel like it competes with mics that are way above it in price.
