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.
