Rode NT1000 Microphone

Studio Condenser Microphone Review

The Rode NT1000 Microphone is of one of Rodes most versatile, excellent sounding microphones.

To start with just about every type of instrument I own with this mic and all of them sound clear and well represented with a very natural quality to the recording. And as far as vocals are concerned this mic is definitely one of the best out there without a tube regardless of price. The vocals are warm, clear and very natural. But this mic picks up everything, so have low background noise in your studio.

With acoustic guitar it is warm and full, sounds very rich. So with acoustic guitar and vocals you can't go wrong with this microphone.

But it is equally capable with amps and drums. You can get a vintage rich full bodied sound that even an SM57 would find hard to match.

The Rode NT1000 is rated 10 out of 10 for the build quality, recording quality and price of this excellent studio condenser microphone.
