For crisp and detailed stage vocals, Rode S1 simply must be considered. Built like a truck (and backed by Rode's tremendous 10 year warranty), S1 is a condenser microphone with a supercardioid pickup pattern.
At the heart of the S1 is a super-cardioid 3/4" true-condenser capsule tuned to virtually eliminate feedback in on-stage performance scenarios.
The combination of sophisticated internal shock mounting and a built-in high pass filter dramatically reduces undesirable low frequency background noise and handling noise.
Multiple layers of acoustically optimised steel mesh in the microphone head filter the performer's breath as well as wind and plosive noises, without affecting the microphone sensitivity or frequency response.
In the box:
- RM1 stand mount
- ZP1 protective zippered pouch
