Rode NT5 Condenser Microphone

Rode NT5

The Rode NT5 is a premier small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone, sometimes referred to as a 'pencil mic'. Intended for recording acoustic instruments, drum overheads, cymbals and live performances, the compact externally polarized mic employs a 1/2" capsule, an active J-FET impedance converter with bipolar output buffer. Its tight cardioid pickup pattern also makes it ideal for use as an indoor dialogue microphone for filmmaking on a mic stand or boom. Finished in durable satin nickel, the NT5 available as a single microphone or as an acoustically matched pair. The NT5 is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE's industry leading 10 year warranty.
