RODE NT5 Compact 1/2" Cardioid Studio Condenser Microphone


  • Unit price per 

The Rode's NT5 is a top-of-the-line small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone, also known as a 'pencil mic'. The tiny externally polarized mic uses a 1/2" capsule, an active J-FET impedance converter, and a bipolar output buffer to capture acoustic instruments, drum overheads, cymbals, and live performances. Its precise cardioid pickup pattern makes it excellent for use on a mic stand or boom as an indoor discussion microphone for filmmaking. Even better, an interchangeable omnidirectional capsule (NT45-O) is offered to increase the NT5's capabilities.
