Sporting a mere 4.5dB of self noise, the NT1 isn't just the quietest studio condenser microphone Rode has produced to date, it's one of the quietest mics of its type in the world. Patented Lyre capsule suspension technology from Rycote further enhance the sound of the NT1, isolating it from even the natural harmonic resonance of its aluminum body. And with the bundled SRM combination shock mount and pop filter, this NT1 Kit is a truly amazing deal.
Experience high-definition sound courtesy of a hand-made, suspension-mounted HF6 capsule
The Rode HF6 hand-made microphone capsule found in their 2013 edition of the NT1 will take you back to a time when all microphone makers took extreme pride in their work. While made using top-of-the-line precision manufacturing techniques, each capsule hand tensioned and tested to ensure the tightest possible consistency. Add to that a 3-axis Lyre suspension system, and you get a microphone that delivers the sound you'd expect from one of the coveted classic condenser mics of the twentieth century, but with low-noise performance you'll only find in today's ultra-competitive market.
Built to be tough, engineered to be one of the quietest studio condenser mics on Earth
When we say low noise, we're talking about a mere 4.5dB (A weighted) of self noise. That translates to about a third of the self noise you'll get from the industry's leading solid-state studio condensers for a fraction of the cost. What this means for you is that you can feel free to apply as much gain as you like to your preamp, or set up dramatic EQ curves, and won't have to contend with a wash of noise overwhelming your tracks. The NT1's amazing build quality also extends to its lightweight aluminum body, which features a laser-etched baked electrostatic coating that will keep your mic looking new for decades.
Bundled with Rode's amazing SRM combination shock mount and pop screen for added value
Having invented what easily qualifies as one of the year's most impressive microphones, Rode wasn't content to supply the NT1 with any ordinary shock mount. That's why they came up with the SRM combination shock mount and pop screen. The entire frame of the SRM is made from an engineering grade polymer, which provides wonderful stability without much added weight. That makes the NT1 incredibly easy to use with any ordinary microphone stand in your studio. A dual Lyre suspension system offers superior resistance to vibration, with none of the drawbacks of conventional rubber-band shock mounts. The SRM's clamp is robust and easy to operate, and the medical-grade stainless steel pop filter offers excellent plosive protection.
