Rode introduces duo of NTG shotgun microphones

Exclusive UK distributor HHB Communications has announced the availability of two new Rode condenser shotgun microphones, the NTG-1 and NTG-2.
Designed and manufactured in Australia, both models come as a direct response to a growing demand from the film, video and TV production industries for a shotgun design that can deliver outstanding broadcast quality from a rugged, lightweight and very low cost package.
Combining extremely low noise surface mount technology (SMT) with a tightly controlled super-cardioid polar response and very wide 20Hz to 20kHz bandwidth, the NTG-1 and NTG-2 are the perfect choice for film, TV, ENG and Theatre work.
While both models operate on standard 48V phantom power, the NTG-2 can also be powered for more than 500 hours from an internal 1.5V battery, giving extra flexibility on location. Both models feature ultra-low handling noise, a switchable 75-80Hz high pass filter, and a low impedance electronically balanced output stage capable of driving loads down to 1k and below.
The durable yet extremely lightweight mechanical design allows either microphone to be mounted directly to video cameras or boom poles, and each model comes complete with mount and a custom-designed integral windscreen, which is hugely effective at suppressing wind noise when recording outdoors.
HHB Communications' Sales Director Steve Angel said: "Having originally established a first-class pedigree in the design and manufacture of studio microphones, we wholeheartedly welcome Rode's increasingly impressive commitment to the film and broadcast sector.
"In common with all Rode products, the NTG-1 and NTG-2 models deliver outstanding quality at an extremely competitive price - and we¹re convinced that these microphones will be warmly embraced by sound recordists everywhere."
