Rode NTR Ribbon Microphone

The Rode NTR Ribbon Microphone is a very special and unique microphone, an intricate blend of art and science. With a bi-directional polar pattern, custom designed transformer and world-class active electronics, the NTR is ideal to hang in the world's finest recording studios and performance halls.

The Rode NTR Ribbon Microphone is equally perfect for use in home studio spaces, its existence is a labour of love for Rode. Every element of the Rode NTR, from the transformer to the ribbon element itself, has been designed and created in-house at Rode’s headquarters in Sydney, Australia. All with the aim of crafting the finest ribbon microphone available.

Sonically, the Rode 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.

What We Think

"The Rode NTR Ribbon Microphone shows up on the scene with Rode's famous consistency and build quality. The active circuit topology makes for a sound is well defined and musical. The NTR is great for overheads. In fact, I recently attended a master class with Alan Parsons (Pink Floyd, The Alan Parsons Project... do I really have to detail who Alan Parsons is?), and he uses a pair of NTRs made for him. The sound when compared to a pair of Coles 4038 was more defined, but still warm and lovely. To the credit of the Coles, it sort of wasn't a fair fight considering they are passive mics and the cable run back to the SSL board preamps was probably 40-50 feet at least. So, the impedance change is going to make them even darker than they normally are... which is pretty dark. Regardless, the Rode NTR takes a lot of the variables out of the process. They're really a stellar value and work really well in a number of situations."
