This mic was acquired in a trade, so I am the second owner and have not used much, except for the samples below. It has some scratches from normal wear, but it functions perfectly, and sounds just like the new NT1a I bought a few years back.
This mic is a great candidate for modding, as you can save some money by modding a used mic insteading of buying a brand new one. Both JJ Audio and Oktavamod have popular mods (~$375) for the mic. I have not heard the mods, but more info on both mods are here: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 .
Here are several quick, 1-take MP3 sound files to give you an idea of what to expect. These MP3 files have no compression, EQ or reverb
-- just straight signal, tracked with this Rode NT1-A mic into a TAB-Funkenwerk V78M preamp using
a Sony PCM DI flash recorder. MP3s are from Logic.
