Dynamite in the studio

The NT1-A is just as at home in front of a world class vocalist as it is in front of a guitar cabinet. Acoustic guitars sing through the NT1-A, and the 137dB SPL prevents overloads no matter what the sound source. The low self-noise ensures that even the faintest whisper will be captured with exceptional detail. Whatever you’re recording, the NT1-A gives you world-class sound — and its classy, satin-finished, nickel-plated body looks right at home in any studio.

A content-creation favorite

While the NT1-A is undeniably an ace in the studio, it’s recently found great success among livestreamers, podcasters, and other content creators who love its vivid sound. The NT1-A’s justifiable price tag gives you clear, high-definition results at a fraction of the cost of a “broadcast” microphone. Speaking of value, when you purchase the NT1-A, you get everything you need to get started. Rode includes a dedicated shockmount, a quality pop filter, a dust cover, and a quality XLR cable.
