    Product Description

    The Rode NT1-A has exceptionally low self-noise, a great sound and an even better price. Superb on vocals, acoustic instruments or amps, it's a highly versatile microphone.

    And now, one of the world's most popular budget vocal recording microphones has just become even better value for money! Now you get everything you need to start recording vocals - including a high quality mic, pop shield, shockmount, and a 6m XLR cable. If that wasn't enough, Rode even chuck in a DVD with studio secrets from Peter Freedmann.

    If you've been struggling to get that professional sounding vocal, chances are that you've been suffering from common auditory problems. These can range from the limited high frequency range of most dynamic mics, wind blasts on plosive sounds like "B" and "P", the creaks of your floorboards, or even the singer's tapping feet getting picked up on the mic. With this kit, (for less than the price of most condenser mics), you'll get everything you need to eliminate these problems and take your vocal recordings to the next level!

    Here's what Rode says about the NT1-A Complete Vocal Recording Solution:

    The RODE NT1-A Microphone is a redesigned version of RODEs classic NT-1, with only a 5dBA of self-noise. The RODE NT1-A is one of the world's quietest mics. Multi award winning and the world's biggest selling studio mic, the NT1 is now a legend.

    The NT1-A continues this tradition while improving specifications and tonal qualities. Using cutting edge technology for electronics, RODE has implemented a computer controlled manufacturing line. Unlike many 'leading brands' all electronic boards are made without 'human hands' assuring high specifications, tight tolerances and unsurpassed consistency. It's built to last with a new computer controlled machine process. The body is then satin nickel-plated. Each NT1-A is supplied with a NTSM shock mount and zip pouch. This product is also available as a Matching Pair. See Related Products.

    The NT1-A is designed to last you a lifetime.

    Mr Nick Bramwell9th Apr 2022

    I’ve had my eye on a Rode NT1-A for many years after using one on a music technology course. I’ve never really had enough need but recently I bought an acoustic imaging pedal that allows you to record your own images, and my daughter has begun to get interested in recording songs she’s written. I’ve been using a Shure SM58 which sounded good, so I wanted something that was a step up from that. I haven’t used the Rode a great deal yet but it definitely gives a more open sound and doesn’t need to be as close to the acoustic guitar to get a good level. It’s well packaged and everything feels very solid and well built. Although it doesn’t come with a hard case like some other microphones, it means more of the money goes on the microphone itself.

    Great looking bit of kit - very professional - and works perfectly with the Focusrite audio interface purchased at the same time.

    very very good product, only thing is shockmount is quite big and heavy so make sure you have a heavy duty mic stand.
