Here is the summary of the Rode NT1-KIT, recently featured in Sound on Sound Magazine:
Superb shockmount and filter included
Very low noise
There's really nothing to complain about at the price, unless you feel you need pad and roll-off switches.
A welcome upgrade to the NT1A concept, with a more refined tonality. The shockmount is a great addition and will also fit many other side-address mics, so it is worth buying the kit rather than the mic on it's own.
