RODE NTG1 Shotgun Microphone

Capture quality sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project with the Rode NTG1 shotgun microphone. With low handling noise and the ability to endure loud sound sources before distortion, the NTG1 offers a cost-effective solution for recording clean dialogue and sound effects.

The NTG1's elevated sensitivity allows it to produce strong output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG1 delivers consistently clear sound due in part to its gentle rise in high frequencies and its rumble-reducing selectable low-cut filter. The durable and lightweight high-grade aluminum housing is finished in hard-wearing epoxy paint to withstand the stress of location recording.

Quality Sound Capture
The combination of the NTG1's 8.6" long body and supercardioid polar pattern yields focused front-facing directionality and enhanced attenuation of sound entering from the sides. Its low self-noise of 18 dBA and sensitive condenser element communicate detailed audio unburdened by the hiss that plagues many low-cost microphones. Plus, its balanced output allows longer cable runs than most camera-mount shotgun microphones.
Phantom Powered
Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and compliance with 24V or 48V phantom power, the NTG1 is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters, as well as built-in preamps on many camcorders and cinema cameras.
Ideal for Boompole Mounting
The NTG1 includes a mic clip for easy placement on a mic stand or boompole. Alternatively, mount the NTG1 in the Rode SM4-R shockmount or Rode PG2-R pistol grip (both available separately) to impede the transfer of vibrations in boompole or handheld applications.
Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise
The NTG1 has a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. For maximum reduction of handling noise and wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, consider the Rode Blimp furry windshield and shockmount suspension system (available separately).

Auray DUSM-1 Universal Shockmount for Camera Shoes and Boompoles

The Auray DUSM-1 Universal Shockmount features a four-point suspension to accommodate shotgun and other cylindrical microphones measuring 0.74-0.98" (19-25mm) in diameter. The shockmount is easily angled with its rubberized adjustment knob. There is a built-in shoe for camera mounting, and a 3/8"-16 thread connection at the base mounts the shockmount to boompoles and universal handgrips.

RODE WS6 Deluxe Windshield for the NTG2, NTG1, NTG4, and NTG4+ Microphones

The Rode WS6 Deluxe Windshield provides excellent noise protection against high wind and adverse weather conditions. The slip-on design of the WS6 features dimensions that accommodate the Rode NTG4, NTG4+, NTG2 and NTG1 microphones; as well as any shotgun or stereo mic with a length of 6.25" (160.5mm) and diameter of 0.88" (22.5mm).

Auray BP-47A Aluminum Boompole with Internal Coiled Cable and Bottom Exit (7.5')
The Auray BP-47A is a 4-section, aluminum boompole that combines an anti-twist tube design with ergonomic twist locks to offer smooth telescoping and hassle-free, one-handed operation—great for adjusting the length quickly, on the fly when filming documentary, ENG, or reality-style videos. The boompole has a collapsed length of 2.5', an extended length of 7.5', and weighs only 1.6 lb. The sections are made of lightweight aluminum tubes designed for portability and durability.

An internal, coiled cable with a side-exit XLR connector makes it easy to extend or retract the boompole while streamlining your setup with fewer cables to carry. The custom, removable head tip and drop-through design allow for cable reconfiguration without any soldering required. High-quality Rean and Neutrik connectors are used for reliable signal transfer and uncompromised performance, even in challenging environments.

Durable Aluminum Construction

  • The durable anodized aluminum construction can handle the bumps and impacts of demanding travel and location shoots in all kinds of weather.

Solid Grip and Smooth Telescoping

  • The ergonomic twist locks are covered with rubber grips that are easy on your hands and comfortable to operate, making length adjustment smooth and effortless. Improved shims ensure a firm and secure hold until you loosen the locks.

Anti-Twist Alignment Tubing for One-Handed Operation

  • Quick length adjustment when you're recording on the go is crucial for keeping from interrupting the shoot. With an anti-twist design, adjacent tubes won't twist when you're expanding or retracting the boompole. This allows for one-handed twist lock operation and makes setup and length adjustment fast and easy.

 

Internal, Coiled Cable with Strain Relief

  • The integrated, coiled XLR cable is engineered to minimize unwanted radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic (EM) interference that can degrade the audio signal. The coiled design allows the cable to smoothly extend and retract with the telescoping tubes.
  • The tip's strain-relief system absorbs tension, secures the cable, and protects the cable from damage at the edges of the tip exit. Additional strain relief at the bottom of the pole protects and preserves the connections between the cable and the TA3 connector.

Bottom-Exit Connector 

  • With a right-angle XLR cable plugged into the bottom-exit connector, the operator can rest the pole on its end without damaging the wiring or connector.
Removable Arrowhead Tip for Solderless Cable Replacement

  • BP Series boompoles feature a removable Arrowhead tip designed to reduce weight at the top of the pole.
  • The tip also allows easy drop-through cable insertion for quick and uncomplicated cable replacement.
  • Thanks to the solderless design, you won't need special tools to replace the XLR cable using the cable replacement kit (available separately).
High-Quality XLR Connectors 

  • The internal cable is equipped with high-quality XLR and TA3 (mini XLR) connectors manufactured by Rean. The connectors ensure flawless signal transfer and secure locking connections, preventing the cable from disconnecting, even if there's stress or an accidental tug on the cable.
  • The Neutrik bottom-exit connector is housed in its own casing and ensures a secure connection to the boompole that won't jeopardize signal flow by twisting or jiggling.

Standard 3/8"-16 Threaded Mount

  • The boompole is outfitted with a standard 3/8"-16 threaded mount to ensure compatibility with most professional shotgun mics and shockmounts.

Auray Neoprene Boompole Bag for 34" Closed Boompole with Shotgun Mic and Softie

The Auray Neoprene Boompole Bag for 34" Closed Boompole with Shotgun Mic and Softie is a case designed to hold up to a 34" closed boompole with shotgun microphone, softie, and shock mount. Its interior end cap is strengthened to protect the bag from punctures. It features a zipper closure with protective interior lining to prevent snags and scratches. The bag is built with an interior pocket for accessories that opens or closes with hook and loop fasteners. An adjustable shoulder strap is included with a nametag holder.

UPC: 847628562790
Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip

The Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip is a handheld grip that features an ergonomic cushioned handle. This grip is great in "run & gun" situations in which a boom pole would be cumbersome, and in video scenarios in which the cameraman is also responsible for audio recording. The grip can be held with one hand, as opposed to a boom pole which requires two. It also provides the option of being able to record audio from a different direction than the camera is pointing, an advantage over camera mounting the mic. Furthermore, having the mic mounted off the camera prevents it from picking up motor noise from the lens focusing.

In addition, the grip features standard 3/8" threads on both ends. This allows you to attach your shotgun mic (with shockmount) to one end of the grip and mount the other end to a boom pole. This gives you the flexibility of being able to quickly detach the pistol grip and the attached shotgun mic from the boom, an option that can come in handy for entering areas that are too small for a boom pole.

I wouldn't consider myself a professional nor have I experience with any other shotguns. HOWEVER, I don't need to be a pro to tell that the noise level is very low and that this mic produces very good sound. I bought it for personal projects that I won't be making money on and it's been worth every dollar (well, shekel)! It's small and light which makes putting on a camera simple and easy. I just finished filming an indie short with it and got great results. I was able to get very usable sound from about 10' away. If you're not a pro, like myself, and you're hesitant about this one I'd say go for it! I can't recommend it enough!

Love it!

How can this microphone claim so much greater directionality (down 14 dB at 60 degrees off-axis) than other shotgun microphones of similar physical length. Is it a typo?
Asked by: Phil
I am honestly surprised at how good this mic is compared to the NTG2 and my Zoom shotgun mics. It is just stronger, cleaner and yes, more directional. It's still just s shotgun mic, not a lav. But it is impressive. I was surprised.

question

Is this mic compatible with DSLR cameras? I have a Canon 5D mark III and am looking for on on-camera shotgun mic.
Asked by: Karina A.
The NTG1 requires power in order to operate that is supplied by the device the mic is connected to. unfortunately this is not able to be supplied by the cameras mini jack output. For the 5D mkIII and similar cameras you will need an additional adapter that is able to provide the power to the mic such as a Beachtek DXA-SLR ULTRA, which will allow the connection of 2 mics, level control, metering and limiters to protect from overload. Alternatively a battery powered mic will also work directly connected. The NTG-2 would be an example.

question

Can this microphone be used with a AA battery for source of power also?
Asked by: kawame d.
No. It uses phantom power exclusively. The NTG2 can use batteries.

question

Does this microphone have to be mounted on a camera? We are using a teleprompter so we need a mic that can stand alone and not have to be mounted to our camera.
Asked by: Sandra M.
We use this as a boom mic which is on a boompole (fish pole) connected to a C-stand that hangs over the talent (speaker). The C stand is weighed down by two 30LB sand bags. You will also need a Matthelini clamp to attach the boom to the C-stand.

question

What is the difference between NTG 1 and NTG 2
Asked by: Nachiketh
I have both. The NTG2 uses a AA battery. Ive seen specs that claim there is a tiny bit of difference in performance but it depends on your size restrictions and phantom power requirements. The NTG1 is great on most of my cams and in podcasts where the space might be an issue and upplying power to it isnt a problem. Recently I started.using a Tascam 70D the power drain is so bad on it I will often switch to the NTG2 to save battery on the mixer/recorder.

question

How far from the subject this mic can record with quality? Is it good for advertising production?
Asked by: Rafael R.
Lots of variables here, but generally you should be within a couple of feet of the sound source - less if it is a noisy environment. This is more an aspect of proper location sound technique in general, rather than the quality of this particular mic. This mic is capable of very good quality sound, but even the most expensive mic will sound terrible if it is 10 ft from the subject.
