Rode NT1 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Kit with SMR Shockmount

You Pay: $269.00
Product Highlights
  • NT1 & SMR Shockmount
  • HF6 Condenser Capsule
  • Rycote Lyre Internal Shockmount
  • Low Self Noise
  • Ceramic Coated Aluminum Body
  • Stainless Steel Pop Shield with Damper
  • Included Mic Sleeve

The NT1 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Kit with SMR Shockmount from Rode is a large diaphragm condenser and features Rode's HF6 capsule as well as an internal shockmount based on Rycote's Lyre technology for protection against vibration. The NT1's circuitry is assembled in Australia by Rode engineers and boasts a 4.5dBA level of self-noise for quiet operation.

The included SMR shockmount also has a dual-Lyre suspension to reduce vibrations and is constructed from a reinforced polymer to evenly distribute vibrations to increase the effectiveness of the Lyre. The integrated pop shield is made of medical-grade stainless steel and has a silicon damper between the outer panels for reduced resonance.

Internal Shockmount
Beneath the body of the NT1 you will find the internal capsule suspension, which employs patented Lyre technology from Rycote. This internal shockmount isolates the HF6 capsule on the X, Y and Z axes, providing protection against vibration
The circuitry of the NT1 is assembled and tested using high-precision machinery operated by the engineers in Rode's Australian factory. This meticulous manufacturing process has resulted in the NT1 having only 4.5 dBA of self-noise
Aluminum Body
The aluminum body of the NT1 is first nickel plated for corrosion resistance, before being coated in a durable ceramic firearm coating using electrostatic application techniques to ensure even coverage. The coating is then baked onto the surface, before having the graphic components laser etched, resulting in a hard wearing finish that is resistant to scratches or marks
SMR External Shockmount with Dual Lyre System
The dual-Lyre suspension system of the SMR was developed by Rode's engineers to improve the overall effectiveness of the shock mount. The smaller inner Lyre acts as a tension element, to maintain each Lyre in its neutral position where it is most efficient at cancelling vibration
The SMR pop shield is manufactured from medical-grade stainless steel. It is first chemically etched, shaped and welded before receiving a PVD base coat, followed by an electrostatically charged paint coating. Embedded between the outer panels is a silicon damper, further minimizing any resonance that could affect your sound
Its clamping system utilizes a greater surface area for increased friction and weight handling, without the need for over-tightening of the locking thread. With the load distributed over a greater surface area, the clamping system is immune to the wear and tear of repeated use
Self Noise 4.5 dBA

    Comments about Rode NT1 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Kit with SMR Shockmount:

    brutally i'm going to be honest, before this beautiful piece of equipment i owned a mxl v89 this mic is very very good and clean mxl makes awesome mics and it had me and my producer trippin and flippin out about its clarity and sound, but then things got real i got more serious started to look into specs and what things ment as far as microphones go and the more i learned only made me feel dumb for even wasting my money on the mxl, then i spent about a good month researching microphones i looked at akg mics and specs neuman specs found that the neuman specs are the up most best far as build quality performance etc. started looking at these rode mics and heard through the grape vine that rode re-done there nt1-a witch is now the nt1 model found that the specs of the rode actually out do the neuman u87's as far as ohms go and self noise this thing is quit like awkwardly quit no hiss no hum no nothing what you say is what you get do to its extremely flat response it hardly has any peak at all and the peak at the end adds just the right amount of air it has such a rich and fresh tone and when i yield real close and it clipped it actually emulated the neuman's sound it had that dirty-ness that is actually wanted me and my producer lowered the levels on this thing to negative 40 db witch is un heard of this mic didn't show no sings of clipping when in fact any other mic would start to sound like sand paper at negative 20 db this mic is an amazing buy you cannot go wrong i cant stress this enough from its incredible engineering to the internal shock mount on the capsule its a musical feat in equipment you guys at rode have won me over with this one and ill also add the pre-amp that it was running through was nothing fancy it was about 250 $$$ and the vocals weren't compressed and it didnt even need much eq at all to sound good either hardly any so we ran a test and simply talked through the mic and heard my vocals coming through the monitors it sounds like real life its not even harsh on the s's you have little to no simbulance in your vocals with this thing buy one and find out yourself :) and to all you gear heads who do have avalon pre's yada yada plug this thing into it im sure you'll put your more expensive mics on the shelf i dont doubt it

    Comments about Rode NT1 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Kit with SMR Shockmount:

    I am a voice over artist from the Dallas area. I bought this microphone for my home studio where I record professional works, as well as practice.

    The first thing I noticed on this microphone was the build quality. Compared to previous Rode mics, the NT1 has a quality weight to it that really speaks for its durability. The black ceramic finish is cool to the touch and looks very sleek. Coupled with the SMR shockmount, the NT1 microphone is a sleek, sexy looking microphone that performs as well as it looks.
    The audio from this microphone is amazing, providing crisp and clear audio from any source you're recording. The Rode NT1 provides a unique sound; with bright highs, solids mids, and warm lows, it covers the whole spectrum and sounds very natural.

    My only two complaints both come from the new SMR shockmount.
    1. The included pop filter, though very sleek, is not always effective. It does a fantastic job about 95% of the time, but occasionally some breath can get through, especially if you are doing an excited voice over.

    2. The SMR shockmount is EXTREMELY effective and offers amazing external noise isolation with the Rycote Lyre suspension system. However, it lacks the ability to swivel left or right, which if you are trying to work in smaller quarters, may prove unwieldy. I myself have space to work with, so it really isn't a big issue, but it is something you should consider.

    Ultimately, even with these two gripes, this set up is still absolutely amazing. The deal you get here is astonishing and offers up professional studio sound quality.
