RODE PSA-1+ Reviews

Insanely cool Boom Arm!!!! Nothing better out there!!

By Scott
Rated 5 out of 5

After reading all the reviews, I knew this was the boom arm that I wanted. And it's actually nicer than I thought it would be. Every little aspect of this thing is just perfect design without any noise when I extend it.... and moving it back and forth is a piece of cake. Plus it is pretty stunning with a nice mike hooked up to it. I use the Samson Q9U and it is a match made in heaven! I also drilled a hole in my desk.... and used the optional piece they give you if you don't want to attach it to your desk in the back... and it's perfect. It fits even better and has a small hole in the back for your USB C cable. I also did what some other people have done and I used a scissors to cut off the neoprene wrapping.... with the huge RODE white, bold letters.... which was in four different places and was completely in-your-face and pretty dumb! Was a little ridiculous for them to do this.... as we don't need to advertise while we are speaking into our microphones. So I just cut it off and it's so much nicer looking and you can still use the clips on top and side for your cable... no problem. For the money, this is a no-brainer! Absolutely best boom arm that you can buy!! Thanx Rode!!!

I absolutely love the RODE PSA1+. The motion is silky smooth. It's simple to install and I appreciate how little space the connection mechanism on the desk takes up. I'm using it for video call with my RODE Procaster and it worked right out of the box.

I've almost bought this boom several times, but I just couldn't justify it. I thought I would find something just as good for less on amazon or something. I bought several different brands and I'm here to tell you this... DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON OTHER BOOM ARMS. I did it and I'm here to tell you that because I did you don't have to now. I should have purchased this from the very beginning and saved myself a few hundred dollars. Since buying this I no longer have to adjust tensioning points to try to hold my mic where I want it, no more fiddling with loosening nut to angle mic. This is a pull it where you want it and let go. It just stays where you leave it regardless of the angle or position. Whatever wizardry they put into developing this is amazing. I get if you think the big white RODE is obnoxious or whatever, but I'm going to tell you after using other brands and coming to appreciate the creation and ease of use for this product I have grown to love the logo on there. There's guys deserve to have it on there like that. If it's that bad just cover it up with some fabric tape. The neoprene sleeves really make this a sleek looking unit. Hope this helps any of u on the fence about it. I won't use any other boom for my streaming or podcast.

Very nice boom/arm for home installation

By Robert
Rated 5 out of 5

Non-professional here with limited exposure to studio gear. That said, the arm is working very well for me. Stable and quiet with an EV RE320 mic and 309A shock mount. I really like the dual base options supplied standard with the arm. I'm using the arm on a custom 3D printed base. The base supplied for installation through a desk top helped keep my base installation easy to design and reasonably compact. The screw-on C-clamp mount I had been using and typical with most low cost arms resulted in a bulkier and less stable installation. While the arm provides significantly increased vibration isolation when compared to the cheap spring tensioned arm I'd been using, I still find the 309A shock mount adds helpful additional isolation. With the PSA1+, some arm movement vibrations (rotation in particular) make it to the mic when used without the 309A... far less than with the previous spring tensioned arm, but still there. With the 309A, arm movements are silent. I feel the arm was well worth the cost and am happy with my purchase.

No but there is a guy on youtube that knows how to remove the branding with chemicals. The sleeves help for operation and stealth though. Also this might not matter, but I don't mind the branding. But I am a tasteless SoundCloud rapper. jk

No. The weight capacity of the Rode PSA1+ Pro is 2.7lbs. Samson G-Track Pro is over 3lbs. So you would need an arm with a higher weight capacity like BH #AUBAI2N for example.

Does this work with the at2020
Asked by: Brayden
The Rode PSA1+ Pro Studio Boom/Arm can support up to 2.7 lb. and the Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone weighs 2.1 lb., so it would be very close and will depend on the weight of the mount that is used to hold the mic. A better option would be the Samson MBA38 Microphone Boom Arm (B&H #SAMBA38) or the Auray BAI-2N Two-Section Broadcast Arm with Internal Springs (B&H # AUBAI2N), which both support up to 5 lb. The Gator Deluxe Frameworks Desktop Mic Boom Stand (B&H # GADFWDMBS3K) will support up to 4.4 lb. Just be aware of the weight of the mic and mount that you will be using and the weight capacity for the stands that you are looking at to find the best options for compatibility.
