Question about Rode NTG-1 Professional Microphone
Our company just bought a RODE NTG-1 microphone. We supply power to the microphone through a phantom power supply box. The sound quality is not what it should be. Does this have anything to do with how long the cable is? Also we are having problems with interference. Any suggestions?
If you are satisfied with Shure products I would recommend that you check out their condenser microphones.All condensers are more fragile than other microphones. Get someone to look at your Rode first in case it is not trashed and can be fixed as they are good mikes. AKG is another brand I would recommend.

If you look at the side of the microphone at that end there should be a small hole. Using long nose pliers grasp one of the pins and pull the jack all the way out to make sure that no wires have broken loose. Look on the side of this (plastic?) piece and you will notice a small screw with a slot in it. Using the pliers again, insert the piece back into the microphone gently and line the screw up with the hole. There should be only one way to do this as the piece has a protrusion that guides it down a slot in the microphone. Once the screw is lined up use a small enough flat blade screw driver to fit the hole. Screw the screw out, Yes Out. What this does is secure thje plug in place and provide a ground to the microphone. Please let me know how you make out.

This mic needs phantom power to operate. Best bet, go and buy a USB mic pre, such as a M-Audio product.
This mic, I believe also runs on a battery, when phantom power is not available...so check the battery.
Or, simply, your record levels are set too low.
