A CLASSIC!
26.08.2015
NTG1 timbre is really nice for recording voice dialog at film sets. Even to have a very powerful set I would add a pair of oktava, wireless senheisser and a pair of sanken, for a quick start kit or EDC is awesome quality at an affordable price.

I would recommend this mic to people that is starting to record sound for video in order to have a good experience at a price that don't hurt at all, avoiding to pay cheap experiments that can change to tedious the work at the studio.

An excellent microphone for recording and live sound
SCHA, 08.09.2019
Purchased a few of these Rode NTG1 microphones to work as overhead mics for our theatre. Their sensitivity and polarity of these mics enables seperation between the microphones across the performance area with an excellent capture of the sound presented. Excellent for recording and live application.

Rode NTG-1
Simon927, 25.06.2013
Excellent mic. I bought it to use for vocals which were difficult to mic close up. I.e. for a guitarist also reading music from a music stand. It works superbly. The sound quality is excellent as you would expect from Rode.it also works really well for instruments such as flute where close micing can pick up breath sounds as well as the flute music.
Am looking to buy more when funds allow.

gut an der Kamera
Udo, 09.10.2009
Das NTG-1 hängt bei mir als Kameramikro am Sucher. Klar hat es bei dem Preis nicht den Sound eines 416 er oder seines großen Bruders, dem NTG-3.

Als ich neulich beim Bühnenaufbau vor eine Sommerparty drehte, wollte ich eigentlich nur ein paar Bilder machen, deshalb hat auch niemand den Ton geangelt. Weil sich aber gerade eine schöne Situation ergab habe ich den einen Bühnenbauer doch etwas über seine Arbeit erzählen lassen - so nach den Motto wenns funktioniert ist gut wenn nicht auch nicht so schlimm. Und, was soll ich sagen? ich war erstaunt wie sauber der Ton aus eineinhalb bis zwei Meter Entfernung klang, obwohl es überall klapperte - eine mittellaute Geräuschkulisse würde ich sagen.
Ich konnte den Ton verwenden und war happy. Das NTG-1 ist als Kameramikro oder an der VJ-Kamera super. Gerade bei der VJ-Kamera hat man ja oft Problem, dass Mikro oder Windschutz im Bild sind. Hier kommt uns die kurze Bauform entgegen. In Kombination mit dem passenden Windschutz von Rode (WS 6) kann dem Ton auch eine Kräftigere Windböe nichts anhaben. Und der Preis ist unschlagbar.

Übriges, wer einen ganz kurzen, fest sitzenden "Puschel auf dem Mikro braucht, der kann den WS 6 auch relativ unproblematisch kürzen. Vorsichtig das Gummi ablösen, Puschel auf Länge schneiden und wieder verkleben. Da kann man bei NTG-1 Und WS-6 noch gut 3-4cm sparen.
