Rode S1 black condenser microphone
Rode’s S1 is specifically designed for live recordings, but has also found its way to the studio where artists who enjoy handheld microphones can use it.
The S1 has a high-pass filter that keeps ambient noises out of a recording. Its super-cardioid pickup pattern also ensures that noise and feedback are eliminated.
The brass head of the S1 filters breathing, wind and ambient noises without interfering with the frequency range. A durable housing makes the unit ideal for heavy-duty on-stage applications. The S1 is electronically balanced to prevent signal loss when a long cable is used.
