RØDE says that they are once again set to re-define the studio microphone landscape with the introduction of the world's very best ribbon microphone, The RØDE NTR. Damien Wilson, RØDE's Global Sales and Marketing Director, told us, "It's always been a dream of RØDE's to create the world's very best ribbon microphone, but the time was never quite right. As many of you know, our manufacturing capabilities have expanded dramatically over the past few years and now we're proud to say we have a facility unlike any other in the world. These expanded capabilities have allowed us to realize this dream, and bring the NTR to life."

RØDE says that the NTR is unlike any ribbon microphone ever created. They tell us that 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. RØDE  says that 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, says RØDE in greater acoustic transparency.

Married to RØDE'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.

A spokesperson told us, "An intricate blend of art and science, the NTR reaffirms RØDE as a world leader in microphones for studio recording of vocals and instruments."

Pricing and Availability:
The NTR will be available globally in February 2015
