Product Description

The RODE NT5 is an amazing, 20Hz-20kHz condenser microphone with low noise specs and full frequency response. The NT5 is ideal for recording acoustic instruments, drum overheads, cymbals and live performances. The compact externally polarized microphone employs a 1/2 inch capsule and an active J-FET impedance converter with bipolar output buffer. Details include a heavy-duty cast metal body with a satin nickel finish and a cardioid polar pattern. The NT5 requires phantom power and includes a WS5 custom windscreen, RM5 stand mount and the ZP1 zip pouch.

Available as a Matched Pair

I love this mic

Excellent mic. Small but mighty.

No roll off switch but it's not needed, nor is any attenuation.

Plug and play.

I finally found the right mic for my acoustic guitar recording. Been searching for a long while tried several mics and direct recording combos and nothing was getting it done for me. This mic saved the day. Nice open sound with very little eq needed to make it sound great.
