      Thanks @plap-disqus-39b1b0fc4a4f43d604bbb161072120b9:disqus!!

  2. This would be a useful addition to my set up. Been struggling with an old usb Blue Snowball mic for vocals and it is just not cutting it now that I actually know how to mix. It would be wonderful to work with a microphone of better quality. Fingers crossed.

    1. Warren Huart says:

      Fantastic @RhymingOverBeats:disqus! Yes, I was impressed!!

  3. Akash-sama says:

    Wouldn’t it be MARVELLOUS if I were to win this mic, Warren? Hehehe.

    1. Warren Huart says:

      Haha best of luck to you and everyone else @akashsama:disqus!

    Hey Warren: I tried the previous incarnation, the grey/silver ones, and I was really impressed with the price/quality ratio. I used them for Voice Overs and Overheads, so far, really good.

    1. Warren Huart says:

      Thanks ever so much @felipegonzlezavalos:disqus! I really appreciate your great insight!

      1. Felipe González Avalos says:

    Hi everyone, currently hunting for Rode NT1-A on ebay which will be the last edition to my new studio set up in West London. For now anyway 😛 Soon I will be running my new website, so I will keep you guys posted. That is a set up for recording bands, however I do already record drums online. Samples of my work will be available on the studio website very soon. If any of you need live custom drums for your recordings just get in touch and I can send you samples. In regards to Produce Like A Pro – hands down one of my favourite learning channels. Thanks Warren!

    1. Warren Huart says:

  11. Lem Meador says:

    4.5 dba self-noise (that IS quiet) and the flattest frequency response curve I have ever seen on a mic, according to the Rode NT1 data sheet.

    1. Warren Huart says:

      Hi @plap-disqus-f76a89f0cb91bc419542ce9fa43902dc:disqus I agree! I’m pretty impressed to say the least! There are so many great affordable mics now!

  12. John Judge says:

    I have an OLD MXL V67G that rocks, but this mic would be a nice addition to my huge mic locker….when I win this I will have 3 mic’s! LOL!

    1. Warren Huart says:

      Wow nice @disqus_uzeqyj9cN7:disqus! Best of luck to you and everyone else!

  13. Akos Varga says:

    I just registered to twitter to increase my chances. Never thought the day would come, but I’ve been trying to get my hands on this mic for months. Keep up the good work, Mr Huart! Cheers

    1. Warren Huart says:

      Hi @disqus_tEEKIZyFVP:disqus That’s great to hear! Bless you! I wish you and everyone else the best of luck!

  14. Terence Williams says:

    Aw man it would be wonderful to win the NT-1. I purchased the mic a few months ago and I never got to open it. I had to sell it on Craigslist because I needed money to move. This would be the greatest gift ever, good luck to everyone joining 🙂

    1. Warren Huart says:

      I’m sorry to hear that @disqus_zfZaiaILm4:disqus! I wish you and everyone else the best of luck!

  15. Ron Kolpak says:

  17. Alan Popa says:

    I like your voice.

  18. Johannes Mazur says:

    This microphone is so quiet it made me almost blow my speaker cone: I was used to a little hiss with other mics but with this one I couldn’t hear any. So turned the gain way up to hear something. Still…pure silence. So I thought the mic or my preamp was broken. I went to the mic and tapped it to check. Having forgotten that the preamp gain was still set on insane I heard a BOOOOOOM! I was shocked but fascinated at the same time 😀

  19. My entries always get stuck at 15. I come back to tweet the contest and it says I have 13 entries. Then I tweet it and it says I have 15. Next day…back to 13 again. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

    1. dj9pz says:

      If I remember correctly there is a link displayed in the “Tweet about this give away” which discribes how to get the right URL for the tweet. Maybe twitter uses sometimes URLs which are no longer pointing to this tweet the next day…

    Hi. Just wanted to point out (as the owner of an original NT1) that the new NT1 is very different to the original. Yes, the original was popular but I think that was because it was one of the first “affordable” condenser. mics

    However, it had a well-known design flaw that made it very bright and sibilant – “The old NT1 used a variety of capsules, but most of them are based on
    the Neumann K67 design, which has a fairly sharp high-frequency boost.
    The K67 was intended to be used in a circuit that provided
    high-frequency de-emphasis, also known as “corrective EQ.” But the NT1
    circuit does not provide that correction. Simply put, the NT1 capsule
    and circuit don’t get along.” (
