RODE microphones have earned a great reputation in the past several years for providing excellent studio-quality microphones at a price that's more accessible to many people. If you're looking for affordable small-diaphragm condenser microphones, take a look at a matched pair of RODE NT5s. These mics give you the kind of performance that far exceeds what you'd expect from condensers at this price point. NT5s are excellent mics for recording practically any instrument — guitar, flute, violin, saxophone, drums, you name it! As soon as you start recording with RODE NT5s, you'll understand why they've become popular, not only in project studios but in many pro studios as well.
These NT5s come as a carefully matched stereo pair for the cost of a typical single condenser. And since you also get a pair of windshields, a pair of mic clips, and a custom carrying case, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better deal. The NT5s have been seen parked over drum kits in countless studios of all calibers, but you can use them for many other instruments as well. The extremely flat frequency response has just a little dip in the low frequencies with small bumps in the presence range, making them great all-around mics for anything from acoustic guitars to violin.
The NT5 is RØDE's 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.
Expanding the NT5's versatility, an interchangeable omnidirectional capsule (NT45-O) is available.
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.
