Rode NT5 Condenser Microphone

The NT5 is RODE'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 RODE's industry leading 10 year warranty.

    Great all round mic for instruments. Performs wonderfully on drum over heads and drum spotting. I have used it on instruments such as cello with outstanding results. Really depends on your performance and mic placement and instrument quality. As good as many mics with bigger price tags. Can't really fault it. Comes with rugged case with the pair.
