Today, you can still find the NT-1 in Rode's lineup. They're not homemade modifications to imported mics anymore, though: now they're designed and built entirely in-house. They're also no longer alone in the catalog - in the decades since 1987, they've been joined by a series of broadcast and studio mics including the NTK, NT2-A, NT3, NT4 stereo and Procaster dynamic microphones. There are also the S1 Pro, M1 and M2 handheld dynamic mics as well as NTG1, 2 and 3 shotgun microphones... and those are just the tip of the iceberg.
Some of the newer additions to the Rode family are their portable recording options. Choosing one of these mics will depend on the type of recording that you do. For instance, the VideoMic Pro Super Cardioid Condenser Mic and VideoMic Directional On-Camera Microphone are perfect for DSLR videographers. Some of Rode's studio mics, like the NT-USB Condenser Microphone, feature a versatile USB connection so you can use them with a laptop to set up a portable recording studio quickly and easily.
It can be tough for a company to earn the trust of musicians and studio professionals, but if there's one mic manufacturer that deserves it, that's Rode. They came from humble beginnings and put themselves on the map with pure hard work and products that outperformed the competition. Today, Rode microphones and wireless systems are still top contenders worthy of any studio, stage or broadcasting booth.
