Rode NTG3

World Class Shotgun Microphone

Order Code: NTG3
Our Price: $585.00

Rode has been steadily releasing new and practical microphones for many years now.

NTG-3 is lightweight for boom use, and the killer part is "Using a technology known as RF-bias the RODE NTG-3 is almost completely resistant to moisture, making it the only option when recording in any demanding environments where condensation is an issue."

Machined from solid brass and nickel plated with an anti-glare finish, the NTG3 is incredibly robust while remaining incredibly lightweight.

Its precise yet forgiving polar pattern ensures that whether used on-camera or on a boom pole, the NTG3 will capture audio clearly every time.
