Rode NTR Active Ribbon Microphone


At first glance of the 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 labour 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.

FAQ's

How do I register for the RØDE extended warranty?

Once registered you warranty will be extended to either 10 years, 5 years capped or lifetime, depending on your product.

What is the procedure for returning a faulty product?

Please view our FAQ to try and troubleshoot the issue. If you believe the microphone is at fault please contact our distributor in your country of residence for the correct procedure for returning your product. To find your nearest distributor please use our technical support finder here.

DO NOT send any product back to RØDE without first obtaining a unique RMA number from us.

Is my microphone covered by a service warranty?

RØDE microphones come with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, this can be upgraded to one of our free extended warranties by the registration of the microphone on our website. Please register your microphone using the WARRANTY tab above.

Our warranty covers faulty workmanship and faulty components. RØDE may either repair or replace the product at their sole discretion. The product must be returned to the service centre in the country that the product was purchased for service and repair.

Please note: the warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, nor the use of the product in heavily corrosive, polluted or extremely humid environments.

I want to buy a RØDE mic from overseas. Will the warranty be valid?

The warranty is only valid in the country of purchase so in the unlikely event that the mic were to fail it would need to be returned to the country of purchase for repair.

Alternatively, the mic can be sent to a local distributor but they may (at their discression) charge an admin fee for repairing a product that was not bought locally. As we offer a 10 year warranty this is always worth considering when adding up the initial cost of the mic.
