RODE NT1-A Large-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone
A Versatile Solution for Vocals and Instruments
Combining a true condenser capsule and ultralow-noise circuitry, the Rode NT1-A large-diaphragm studio microphone offers a warm, clear, and quiet sonic signature that makes it popular for voice and instrument capture at home or in the studio. Plus, its bundle of accessories—shockmount, pop filter, XLR cable, and dust cover—help the NT1-A serve vocalists, rappers, and podcasters especially well.

With low noise being a top priority of the NT1-A, its 1" gold-sputtered capsule is internally shock-mounted to further isolate it from handling and vibration noise. Additionally, the mic's cardioid polar pattern naturally rejects a good deal of sound behind it, which yields less background noise and room sound than other patterns such as omnidirectional and figure-8. Since it can run on 24 or 48 VDC phantom power, the NT1-A can be used with a variety of professional and entry-level XLR mic preamps.
NT1-A Samples from Audio Test Kitchen
  • B&H is proud to be partnering with Audio Test Kitchen, the world’s most comprehensive online audio product comparison platform, to improve the resources provided to our customers shopping for the right microphone for their given application.
  • This provides you with the ability to listen to a growing selection of microphones with spoken word recordings captured in a standardized environment, with levels matched by the talented engineers at Audio Test Kitchen in its impressive reference studio.
  • Audio Test Kitchen records microphones under identical conditions so you can compare them, apples-to-apples. The source, signal chain, and level never change. The only differences you will hear are between the microphones.
Large-Diaphragm True Condenser
This true condenser (externally biased) features a 1" gold-sputtered diaphragm that provides a broad frequency response, wide dynamic range, and excellent signal-to-noise ratio.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The cardioid polar pattern of the NT1-A effectively minimizes off-axis noises such as room ambience, monitor bleed, and instruments behind the mic.
Transformerless Output
The transformerless output electronics result in an ultralow-noise output (just 5 dBA) while maintaining maximum signal gain.
48V Phantom Power
The NT1-A operates reliably on 24 or 48 VDC phantom power, which can be supplied via most XLR-connected mic preamps, mixer channels, or audio interfaces.
Accessory Package
The accessory package includes a studio-grade shockmount with an integrated pop filter, a premium 20' XLR mic cable, a dust cover, and a downloadable instructional video packed with recording tips.

Auray RF-5P-B Reflection Filter (Metal)

The RF-5P-B Reflection Filter from Auray is designed to improve the quality of voice recordings captured in your home studio, rehearsal studio or other untreated acoustic environment by absorbing and isolating the microphone from unwanted ambient reflections. By absorbing and diffusing these reflections, the RF-5P-B creates a closer and dryer sound that allows more control over the vocals. It can also be used for other applications such as recording an acoustic guitar or an electric guitar cabinet.

Five punched metal panels and a pyramidal, acoustic foam lining filter ambient noise and help prevent sound from reflecting back into the microphone. The two outermost panels are adjustable, allowing you to control how dry your recording will be.

Whether it's a home studio or a rehearsal studio, for podcasting or broadcasting, the RF-5P-B Reflection Filter is designed to provide a portable solution for improved acoustic isolation.

Three Different Mounting Options
Threaded socket on the bottom can be mounted to a standard microphone stand, or the clamps on the back can be mounted to the shaft of a microphone stand with a boom arm. Also comes with non-slip feet for tabletop use

RODE NT1-A Reviews

Do NOT buy this microphone

By ann marie

DO NOT buy this microphone. I purchased this NT-1A in January and within a month it became nonfunctional, cutting in and out. Replaced all hardware and confirmed that it was, in fact, the mic. I contacted Rode and explained the issue. I sent the mic in and they sent me a NEW replacement NT-1A. The same exact issue occurred within a day of using the replacement mic. I searched on-line and found pages of similar complaints on this product. I, again, contacted Rodes and after several minutes they agreed to send me another model. Not sure why a company would want to damage their reputation by continuing to sell a clearly defective product. I am also disappointed that B&H would direct me to the manufacturer and not exert some influence on the fact that they are selling such a poor product.

Pretty awesome mic

This microphone is clear, and makes your voice stand out in there mix. But the only draw back is B&H, I'll never do a business with them anymore. For they don't go above and beyond to help their customers. After buying this mic, i realized that I bought using my old address, so i called their customer service to see if they can contact the shipping company to rectify the problem. They refused to do anything. I was pretty much on my own. Therefore, i had to contact FedEx and asked them to hold my other in FedEx store and I'll pick it up there. FedEx told me that B&H could've done it if they wanted to.

Real solid purchase for me

I’m looking for a new mic to start recording music again..I’ve read this is a good mic but don’t connect to a laptop. Is there a way I can connect this to my laptop to record vocals? Thanks in advance
Asked by: Billy
The Rode NT1-A Microphone/USB Preamp Bundle is an excellent option. The kit does include a Senal XU-1648 XLR-to-USB Interface that will allow you to connect the microphone to your computer via USB. The USB cable is included and the interface also features a headphone jack so you can monitor the audio while recording.

Im looking to record ambient room audio in ...

Im looking to record ambient room audio in churches mostly during wedding ceremonies. I see mostly people using it for podcasting and music recording. Will it work well the way i want to use it in this scenario?
Asked by: Elliott
I would not consider this mic for ambient recording at a wedding ceremony, but instead would use a stereo mic set up to. Two small diaphragm mics, such as the Rode M5 Compact 1/2" Condenser Microphone (Matched Pair), BH #ROM5MP on a stand facing each other in an X/Y pattern would be a good solution. You would put the two mics on to a K&M 23550 Adjustable Microphone Bar, BH #KM23550, and on to a mic stand, such as the Auray MS-5230F Tripod Microphone Stand with Fixed Boom, BH #AUMS5230F. Aim this at the audience or the front of the church to pick up a good area of coverage. If you need wider coverage, face the two mics away form each other on the stereo bar. .

Could the XLR cable connect straight to my phone to record music, or do I have to buy a different wire or thing to connect it straight to my phone? I don't have a laptop and I want to record on my phone, can you please give me info. Thank you.
Asked by: Alexis
You can connect the NT1-A to your phone using a battery-powered mobile interface such as the IK Multimedia iRig Pre Microphone Interface (B&H# IKIRIGPRE). The interface will supply phantom power for the mic and then send the audio into the phone. The iRig Pre has an attached cable with a 3.5mm TRRS connector for smartphones and also works with a Lightning adapter for compatibility with iPhones. The interface includes a headphone jack with volume control to monitor the audio while recording. There are many other similar options with the same types of features, and some with additional features for connecting a second mic or instrument. Please feel free to contact us directly and we can help you to select the best options for your needs.

have you already sent to Brazil? Does it get expensive with taxes?
Asked by: Bruno
Depends on why you are sending to Brazil. If the item is a gift then it's not taxed as an imported good, however it will still run you about $50-75 USD via USPS depending on box size for packing. Otherwise check with Br customs on taxes, it can absolutely be pricey and a hassle as their post is all gov run.

What is the mount size for this microphone. I'm wanting to use a desktop mic stand?
Asked by: Anonymous
This mic and its accompanying mount require a standard mic screw mount. This is a large, heavy mic that needs the support of a good stand, and will require an external mixer before feeding signal to a computer.
