Rode S1 Condenser MicrophoneDetails
Live Performance Super Cardioid Condenser Microphone. The RODE S1 is designed specifically for 'no compromise' live vocal performance, but has also found a place in the studio where the performer wants to hold the recording mic.
Full DescriptionView Full Description
The S1 utilises a true condenser transducer for studio quality sound reproduction. Its sophisticated high pass filter dramatically reduces undesirable low-frequency background and handling noise. The super cardioid pick-up pattern further limits background noise and virtually eliminates feedback.
The multi-stage mesh head filters breath, wind, and plosive noise without affecting sensitivity or frequency response. The hardened mesh head also protects the precision transducer from the rigors of live performance. The rugged ergonomic design of the S1 makes it extremely comfortable to hold and control during use.
The high level output of the S1 is electronically balanced to reduce loss over long cable runs.
"...offers a real step-up in quality when compared to its dynamic counterparts... To sum up, I would say that if you want studio-mic sound quality on stage, the RØDE S1 is one of the better options available." Sound on Sound Magazine
"A five-stage pop filter, an incredible 151 dB SPL, low THD and a supercardioid condenser element are reasons enough to make this mic a standard for any live event. This is a great handheld, condenser mic!" proaudioreview.com
