Class Micro, for B AND Studio

Andreas068, 03.11.2009
Some time ago I had to decide which micro I would buy for the stage.
I was initially very critical, because people told me that capacitor gives feedback immediately.

Features & Sound
The screwable head is practical. At home, I use the microphone as a second user to my RODE-NT1 to double my guitar twice, but I remove the head, in order not to lose any brilliance. The result is a clear, brilliant sound, which of course is distinguished from the RODE-NT1, perfect as a buyer for the second guitar track. This results in a slightly differentiated stereo sound image, without the need for further adjustments. An on / off switch, which one in the hustle at the performance can forget to press, the microphone does not what I feel as positive.

The sound is crystal clear and has pleasant heights. I also did not want a muddy sound on the stage where you do not understand a word as I know it from the standard Shure - I wanted something better, I wanted studio quality on the stage and a second microphone to record - and I am Very satisfied with the result. My fear of the feedback, fortunately, has not been true. I had no problem with any performance so far.

Processing: The microphone is solid processing, feels good and looks chic.

Conclusion: I can only recommend it to anyone who does not want to be content with "cheap standard shure", and perhaps still need a second microcomputer. Feedback problems are not worth mentioning (we are also not heavy metal or punk band ...), processing is super, sound is super, look is taste - I find it very beautiful - in silver.

Rode in live mode

Gerald, 05.10.2009
The processing and handling of the Rode S1 is perfect. Visually, the microphone really does what.
I have the Rode S1 as a vocal microphone and instrument microphone in live use. Sound, the voice does not come to a Shure Beta58, the sound is not crisp enough for me and the feedback behavior leaves a lot to be desired. Unfortunately, the Rode S1 is very sensitive, which also gives quick feedback. When the guitar amp was removed, the result was better. At the amp I have a higher level than with the voice and therefore the feedback is not so problematic. Furthermore, I have tested the Rode S1 also as Bläsermikro however I was not satisfied with the result.
On the whole, the Rode S1 is a very nice and high-quality microphone, but it is limited to the feedback.
