Rode NTR Active Ribbon Mic

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Designed to hang in the world's finest recording studios and performance halls equally as well as home studio spaces, its existence is a labour of love for RODE. Every element of the NTR, from the transformer to the ribbon element itself, has been designed and created in-house at RODE's headquarters in Sydney, Australia. All with the aim of crafting the finest ribbon microphone available.

Sonically, the NTR is capable of reproducing unprecedented high frequency detail and accuracy, addressing common criticisms of other ribbon microphones, while opening up the possible usage scenarios considerably. This allows it to record sound sources that usually require a more sensitive microphone element.
