Upon its release, we wrote of the NT1A: "This Anniversary Model NT1-A is also a complete redesign of the now legendary NT1 classic studio microphone. With a self-noise figure of only 5.5 dBA, the NT1-A is one of the lowest noise studio mics in the world - regardless of cost"
Cardioid condenser well suited to vocal duties (both sung and spoken word), guitars and a variety of acoustic instruments.
Includes shockmount and pop filter. Of course, now we could add "one of the most popular project studio microphones ever manufactured" to that feature list.
In the box:
- SM6 shockmount with popshield
- Microphone cable (20' / 6m)
- Dust Cover
- Instructional DVD with recording tips
