The Takstar is the best value-for-money condenser mic on the market. A rugged build with equally strong reviews.
Although not quite as powerful as theRØDE VideoMic Pro this budget-conscious alternative still over-delivers on its value. We searched, tested and threw out (gave to our friends) dozens of budget alternatives until we eventually found a decent contender.
As a high-sensitivity condenser microphone (explained in the RØDE VideoMic Pro description) the Takstar uses a cardioid polar pattern which focuses on the sounds directly in front of it (you and your performance!) and reduces unwanted noise from elsewhere.
A +10dB sensitivity booster allows you to capture and eliminate low-frequency tones around 200Hz. To read about what a high-pass filter does – check out the description on the RØDE VideoMic Pro page where we explain what this is and how it benefits you.
We recommend looking at the Kits with the Takstar if you’re either just starting out or if you’re a little more budget conscious right now.
Having been through the journey from amateur to professional we know the struggle of trying to turn your passion into your living and our aim is to support you the whole way, both on and off the stage and screen (Come join us in the private AktorsKit Self-Tape Communityover on Facebook!)
