Rode’s debut into the world of ribbon microphones looks to be ticking all the boxes already.
Carefully made in Australia, Rode has produced one of the finest ribbons available, at just 1.8 microns, offering the highest level of sensitivity across the useable frequency response range.
With extra attention being paid to the internal suspension, no external shockmount is required for NTR. In other words, it not only looks stealth, NTR is stealth.
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.
