Take The Studio Home With The Rode NT1-A 1" Low Noise Cardioid Condenser Microphone

The Rode NT1-A 1" cardioid condenser microphone has become an industry-standard; delivering the warmth, extended dynamic range, clarity, and high SPL capability typically only featured on some of the world's most expensive microphones.

With a self-noise level of only 5dBA, it is widely recognized (along with the NT1) as one of the world's quietest studio microphones. This low noise makes it an ideal vocal microphone as well as perfect for recording guitars and percussion.
