The new Rode NTR has been designed by Rode from the ground up.

The product description reads “Every element of the NTR, from the transformer to the ribbon element itself, has been designed and created in-house at RØDE’s headquarters in Sydney, Australia. All with the aim of crafting the finest ribbon microphone available.”

We were happy to let Rode Microphones’ National Sales Manager, Craig Parker, bring the NTR into our 90º Studio Showroom for a road test and shoot-out against a couple of the ribbon microphones we already use; the 4080 by Audio-Technica and the RNR1 sE Rupert Neve Signature Series.
