Product Description

The RODE NTG-1 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, specifically designed for professional applications within the film, video, television, voiceover and ENG industries.

The NTG-1 provides an electronically balanced output stage and operates on 48 V to the P48 standard. The NTG-1 offers wide bandwidth and a controlled polar response coupled with low noise SMT electronics. The NTG-1 is extremely lightweight making it ideal for mounting directly to video cameras (with optional accessories) or a Boom pole.

The NTG-1 comes complete with mount and windshield. The supplied windscreen effectively suppresses wind noise when recording outdoors in moderate conditions. Optional accessories are available for more demanding applications.

4.5 out of 5 (17 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"This is a good microphone from a good company."
Sound: This is a very honest, nuetral-sounding mic. I've used it as a live drummer's vocal mic in a rock band, as a distant stage mic for live theater recording, and as a mono drum overhead mic live. I expected it to be a special-purpose, odd sort of mic, but it sounds at least good on everything so far. Feature: Lo-cut does what it should, windscreen is as-advertised (won't help much in a serious windstorm). Ease of Use: Not very cranky at all. If you just think "shotgun", you won't try it on other things, but you should. Quality: This is very sturdy for such a light mic. I have stopped treating it like a condensor. Value: I have no other shotgun mic experience (shotguns are VERY pricey). This mic is at or near the entry point for shotguns. I do not regret the purchase, and do not lust after more expensive shotguns. Manufacturer Support: i have dealt with Rode about a different mic (NT1A) that failed myteriously just after the warranty period. The factory didn't just fix it, they replaced it with a new mic. that is support in capitals. The Wow Factor: I had to get a ribbon(or three), I had to get a shotgun. It is a kind of exotic little thing to have. It really had no practical appeal, but I ocassionaly had wondered, "would a good shotgun work for this?" There was only one way to scratch that itch. Overall: If this were lost or stolen I might not replace it. I love having it and trying it for things, but I can't say that I really need it to do good recording or live sound. But no regrets...

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
