At first glance of the RØDE's NTR you’re aware that it’s very special and unique – an intricate blend of art and science.

Designed to hang in the world’s finest recording studios and performance halls equally as well as home studio spaces, its existence is a labor of love for RØDE. 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.

Sonically, the NTR is capable of reproducing unprecedented high frequency detail and accuracy, addressing common criticisms of other ribbon microphones, while opening up the possible usage scenarios considerably. This allows it to record sound sources that usually require a more sensitive microphone element.

The Ribbon
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 useble frequency response range.

Laser etched element – 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.

Internal shock mounting – The NTR's integrated shock mounting is so effective an external shock mount is not required.

The Body
Travel Screw – 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 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.

Unique design – The ribbon is mounted distinctly separate to the microphone body, allowing the greatest possible acoustic transparency around the ribbon element and minimizing any resonance.

The Electronics
Custom transformer – Married to RØDE's ribbon element is a high output, ultra-low noise, low-impedance transformer. This ensure 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.
