The NT1 is a revolutionary new 1" diaphragm condenser microphone
Although the body of the new NT1 closely resembles the NT1-A, the microphone
has been completely redesigned from the ground
up, with the only shared component being the mesh grille.
RODE's design engineers approached the NT1 as a marriage of innovation and tradition, starting with the capsule
which is a completely new design. Codenamed the HF6, it is the perfect example of RODE's fusion of artistic design approaches and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, and features a sound
signature reminiscent of the famous microphones of old while at the same time exhibiting extremely low noise
It has been developed with a focus on detailed midrange
response, coupled with silky smooth high frequencies, and warm, round, bass
reproduction to make the NT1 an absolute standout in its class.
In another world-first for RODE, the transducer
itself is suspended inside the microphone
using Rycote's industry-leading Lyre system, minimizing external vibrations at the capsule level
. The capsule
is then married to high-grade electronics that have been designed to provide the lowest noise level
of any studio microphone
available. The NT1 is an incredibly quiet microphone
, measuring only 4.5dBA of self-noise
Its body is machined from 6061 aluminium
and then nickel plated for resistance against corrosion. Finally it is coated in a durable, military-grade ceramic layer, using advanced electrostatic
application techniques developed by RODE to ensure an extremely hard wearing finish that is resistant to scratches or marks.
The NT1 is designed and made in Australia, and is covered by RODE's industry-leading 10 year warranty.
