Rode NT-1A

Bought this as my first condenser microphone for vocals.

the audio quality is great as expected and the included shock mount and pop filter are very useful especially if you do not have any already and are high quality.

The microphone is quite bright, so perhaps not ideally suited for deep male voices and the shock mount-pop filter assembly although good quality are very heavy, so make sure you have a good microphone stand to put it on.

an all round great microphone for just the right price, the warranty can also be extended to 10 years if you register the microphone on their website.
