Overview

The Rode NT1-A-MP is not a separate model from the NT1-A (The MP stands for “Matched Pair”). On its own, the NT1-A has earned a reputation for one of the most quiet mics in the industry. This makes it perfect for capturing intimate nuanced performances.

As a pair of overheads or room mics, recorded tracks get a better noise floor, thus not adding to the collective noise when using multiple mics.

Their high SPL handling can keep up with even the loudest of drummers without internally distorting.
