    Stock RODE NT1 Headbasket

    Notice how the dual layer / single sheet headbasket construction causes severe crimping of wire mesh, reduces open area and causes internal headbasket reflection coloration

    Btw - this is Michael Joly writing. Your RODE NT1 will be transformed into a boutique vocal mic featuring the MJE-K47 capsule that oozes classic mic voicing (a "beer budget" U87 alternative?) without excessive high end boost. Your digital recordings will be better as a result.

    Click "Add to Cart" to purchase the modification service for your Rode NT1. The modifications are performed in our lab on Cape Cod. Once you order you'll get an immediate confirmation email. By the close of the next business day you'll receive a personal email with your scheduled modification and return ship dates. Questions? Just click "Contact Me" - And remember - your purchase is risk-free. best, Michael

    * Mods to Other Rode Models Now Available!

    I haven't made dedicated product pages for all the Rode mods I do here in my shop. But the parts, labor and most importantly - results - are just about the same as what you've heard here. Just write and let me know what you've got and I'll help you place your order. best, Michael
