Ease of Use
Crystal Clear Warm Tone
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The mic is well made, the finish and the mic housing incredible considering how inexpensive it is. I just bought it locally. So I only had it for a week.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The tone of the NT1A was Warm it did what other mics I have like Cad's Trion 8000 but without the noise. I would add a wooden case or a flight case. The mic is perfect, its entry level but with pro sound quality. No his no hum just you. I had no issues with sibilance. It smooth smooth smooth. I cant wait to put it through a good tube preamp.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Plug it in to your interface and sing rap scream your heart out. I watched the DVD to pick up some tips and it was cool. I may need them with this mic when recording other artist, so its helpful. No its is to hook up pop stopper and mic cradle worked well. The manual was well written and easy to understand.
How is the tone?
Warm like fresh baked bread. Its smooth on my voice silky and smokey. I have heard others say vintage 50's and sixties tone, but I don't have expensive vintage microphones to compare it to.
Your general opinion of this product.
Clean well assembled, frighteningly quiet, with a silky fat bottom and just the right amount of airiness on top.
