For directional or distance miking, this Australian-made shotgun mic simply must be considered. A long gun, the NTG8 borrows plenty of innovation from Rode’s NTG3, and cranks it up a notch.

Like NTG3, the NTG8 features low self-noise, natural sound without colouration both on and off-axis, and RF bias technology to ensure that it is almost completely resistant to high humidity environments which could cause other condenser microphones to fail.

Supplied with a specially designed shock mount (SM8) that is engineered to provide excellent handling noise isolation, cable management and versatile mounting options for the microphone.

A rugged weatherproof aluminium cylinder is also included, providing ultimate protection for the microphone when in transport or storage.

In the box:

  • NTG8 shotgun microphone
  • RCNTG8 protective aluminium cylinder
  • WSNTG8 foam windshield
  • SM8 shock mount

Don’t be fooled by the price, NTG8 has definitely been designed as a broadcast quality shotgun. Use it for film, television, sports and outdoor broadcasting, live performance, and any professional distance miking application.
