The RØDE 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 the world’s quietest studio microphones. This low noise makes it an ideal vocal microphone as well as perfect for recording guitars and percussion.
Packaged in the ‘Complete Vocal Recording Solution’, the NT1-A includes everything you need to get a truly professional vocal recording and is ideal for home studio recording.
A studio grade pop shield and shock mount is included, along with a premium 20′ microphone cable, dust cover, and an downloadable instructional video packed with recording tips.
The RØDE NT1-A large diaphragm 1″ cardioid condenser microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones’ industry leading 10 year warranty.
The NT1 is a revolutionary new 1″ diaphragm condenser microphone from RØDE.
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.
RØDE’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 RØDE’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 RØDE, 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 RØDE to ensure an extremely hard wearing finish that is resistant to scratches or marks.
The NT1 is supplied with the SM6, a high-quality suspension shockmount that provides isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. It includes a removable pop shield with two axes of adjustment and a telescopic arm for ultimate application versatility.
The NT1 is designed and made in Australia, and is covered by RØDE’s industry-leading 10 year warranty.

The WeissKlang V17 combines reliable characteristics with an uncompromising sound and is equipped with the newest technology. It’s very versatile and perfect for all demanding applications in professional recording environments.
The V17 utilizes a discrete semiconductor circuit with superior acoustic qualities, an excellent resolution and the highest sound pressure level transmission.
With a self-noise of <8 dB-A it’s very low-noise and offers a high dynamic range.
TransHarmonic™ provides both the sonic properties of tubes and the technical properties of transistors (self-noise, dynamic range, resolution).
The newly developed and patented TransHarmonic™ technology produces subtle and harmonic overtones, which contribute to the great resolution and the musical sound of V17 – and this without the use of tubes.
The overall tone gets an unmatched three-dimensionality with full low and mid-range frequencies as well as smooth high frequencies.
The new WMK-17 capsule is gold-sputtered, least sensitive at the rear (cardioid) and edge-terminated. The frequency range of 20 – 20.000 Hz allows an optimal recording of extremely low (and high) frequencies.
The frequency response is flat with a subtle and balanced high-frequency lift from 2 kHz. Therefore the capsule captures even the finest details and works with an excellent impulse response.
The circuit and the capsule are matched, in order to get the best possible acoustic properties.
Timeless and simple
The low-resonance body of V17 is made of copper and aluminium.
The slightly roughened and powder-coated surface is very resistant and durable.
The wire mesh headgrille protects the capsule from interferences and plosive sounds.
The included MA-1 shock mount isolates the microphone from physical vibration, floor and stand noise. The low frequency absorption goes up to 18 dB.
Equipped with a soft foam layer the MA-1 provides a stable and fast mounting with adjustable angle.
The flexible rubber bands offer an ideal isolation and are replaceable.
