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.
