Good For a Dull Sounding Guitar but Not Much Else July 24, 2015
Reviewer: Rob Coates from Rochester MN United States  
Having owned one of the original Rode NT1s, I liked the relatively flat frequency response it had with just a little bump in the upper register. It was a little grainy sounding though so I was eager to get and try the newer version NT1a. However, I found that instead of improving the mic by smoothing out the top end, they actually managed to make it worse. Sounded to me like a very hyped high end. Couldn't find many sources it was good on. The one possible exception is a dull sounding acoustic guitar with dead strings. Anyway, I can't recommend this mic. I'd say look at something like the ADK Hamburg or better yet, for a few more dollars, get a world class mic: The M-Audio Sputnik.

very popular and easy to "learn" mic May 17, 2012
Reviewer: Daniel Infield from Duluth, GA United States  
NT1-A is really the only mic in its price range that you'll keep around after you upgrade to the big boys.  As an LDC, it's a bit dark, but for cheaper mics that's definitely the better side to err.    Good for vocals and acoustic guitars; shines for female background vocals in full mixes.  Better S/N characteristics than other mics of its class.

A Mic for everything! February 29, 2012
Reviewer: Oscar Pestana from Sao Paulo, BRAZIL  
Excelent for Vocals but, beyond that, also great for guitar cabinets, Floor Toms, Room miking, acoustic guitars and so on. This is a gear that can be used on every king of recording with the correct Mic Pre. Rode did it again! Awesome!

NT1-A review December 20, 2011
Reviewer: David J. Jones from Selkirk, MB Canada  
The NT1-A is a great mic at its price. Sounds distinctive but in a way that conveys quality as well. Straight through a gain only preamp, it sounds like it's in the mid range of sensitivity and quiet. The good thing about the mic is you really shouldn't process it at all, because the the sound is slightly smooth as though it went through an expensive preamp. It was probably designed that way so home recorders can go directly in without anything between the mic and the deck.
