Rode NT5-S

Compact 1/2" Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Single)

Order Code: NT5
Our Price: $269.00

NT5 is one half of the almighty NT5-MP package, which has been a 'fan favourite' for over a decade at Factory Sound.

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.

NT5 is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE's industry leading 10 year warranty.
