One of the thinnest ribbons in existence
Measuring only 1.8 microns, the NTR ribbon was designed to provide the highest level of
sensitivity across the useable frequency response range.
Most ribbon microphone manufacturers manually cut the element, resulting in microscopic frays along the
edges that decay over time. RØDE uses a proprietary laser technique to cut the NTR ribbon, giving a far more precise cut with smooth edges, increasing its longevity.
The NTR’s integrated shock mounting is so effective an external shock mount is not required.
This secures the sensitive ribbon element and shock mount in place when not in use.
Chemically etched all-metal mesh
Extremely rigid while exhibiting super-low density, this results in greater acoustic transparency.
Solid surfaces in the capsule rejection zone
The solid frame around the ribbon capsule is positioned entirely within the rejection zone of
the capsule’s bidirectional polar pattern.
The ribbon is mounted distinctly separate to the microphone body, allowing the greatest possible acoustic transparency
around the ribbon element and minimising any resonance.
Married to RØDE’s ribbon element is a high output, ultra-low noise, low-impedance transformer. This ensures
maximum fidelity between the NTR’s ribbon motor and electronics.
World-class active electronics
In combination with the transformer this allows the NTR to be used with a wide range of preamps
without the additional gain requirements of many other ribbon offerings.
Ribbon replacement program
An innovative ‘free replacement ribbon’ program allows each NTR owner the option of one free replacement ribbon within the extended
10 year warranty
RØDE offers a free extended 10 year warranty on the NTR, following online registration of the microphone on
