Rode NTR Active Ribbon Microphone




The NTR active ribbon microphone is unlike any ribbon microphone ever created. The unique design places the ribbon distinctly separate to the microphone frame and body allowing the greatest possible acoustic transparency around the ribbon element and minimizing resonance. The ribbon element itself is designed completely from scratch using extremely fine aluminum that is only 1.8 microns thick - one of the thinnest ribbons in existence. An innovative, in-house, proprietary technique was developed to laser cut the ribbon giving a level of precision and accuracy never before seen in a ribbon microphone.

Dark & Smooth - Staff Review

By: on 11 May 2016
Rode did a really good job on this one. Its an active ribbon so no need for a Ribbon pre with loads of gain and no 48V dramas. It has a nice smooth dark character so perfect for Horns, Piano, Acoustic Guitar etc. I've had great results on electric guitar too. Ribbons have a lot of body to them so they lend themselves well to electric guitar if you need a more full sound with a rolled off top end. They also make amazing room mics if you have a pair.
