RODE NT5 Compact 1/2″ Cardioid Condenser Microphone
The Rode 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 Rode NT5 available as a single microphone or as an acoustically matched pair.
The Rode NT5 is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RODE’s industry leading 10 year warranty.
