The Rode NT1 Cardioid Condenser Microphone was designed to compete with other high quality condenser mics that cost many times more! This 1-inch diaphragm condenser mic has been completely redesigned by Rode as a marriage of innovation and tradition, starting with the capsule which is a completely new design.
The HF6 capsule on the NT1 vocal mic features a sound signature reminiscent of the famous microphones of old while at the same time exhibiting extremely low noise. It has been developed by Rode with a focus on detailed midrange response, coupled with silky smooth high frequencies, and warm, round, bass reproduction to make the NT1 an absolute standout in its class.

In another world-first for Rode, the transducer of the NT1 is suspended inside the mic using Rycote’s industry-leading Lyre system, minimizing external vibrations at the capsule level. The capsule is then married to high-grade electronics that have been designed to provide the lowest noise level of any studio microphone available. The NT1studio mic is incredibly quiet, measuring only 4.5dBA of self-noise.
The NT1’s body is machined from 6061 aluminum and then nickel plated for resistance against corrosion. Finally it is coated in a durable, military-grade ceramic layer, using advanced electrostatic application techniques developed by RØDE to ensure an extremely hard wearing finish that is resistant to scratches or marks.
The Rode NT1 can be purchased with the optional Rode SMR shock mount. Featuring a unique double-Lyre suspension system, the SMR enhances the existing superior vibration cancellation of Rycote’s Lyre system by using a smaller inner Lyre to act as a tensioning element. This maintains each Lyre in the neutral position where it is most efficient at cancelling vibration. The SMR’s removable all-metal pop filter is as effective as it is visually striking, providing an integrated solution for plosive protection that is easily washable.
