The Rode NTR Ribbon Microphone is the ultimate ribbon microphone for recording
applications, equally suited to performance halls, world-class professional studios
and home recording spaces. Featuring internal shock mounting and one of the
thinnest ribbon elements in existence, the NTR is capable of recording sound
from a multitude of sources with unparalleled detail and accuracy.
Built on a foundation of studio microphone excellence, Rode is once again set to
re-define the studio microphone landscape with the introduction of the world's
very best ribbon microphone, The Rode NTR.
The NTR 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
minimising resonance. The ribbon element itself is designed completely from
scratch, using extremely fine aluminium 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.
Surrounding the ribbon element is a chemically etched all-metal layer of mesh,
the same used on the SMR pop shield. This is extremely rigid while exhibiting
super low density, resulting in greater acoustic transparency.
Married to Rode's ribbon element is a high output, ultra-low noise, low impedance
transformer. Combined with world-class active electronics, this allows the NTR to
be used with a wide range of preamps without the additional gain requirements
of many other ribbon offerings.
