RODE NT5 Matched Pair Microphones

SKU: NT5MP

The Rode NT5 is a cardioid condenser microphone offering a full frequency response and low-noise output circuitry.

The NT5 matched pairs are a masterpiece of small-diaphragm cardioid-condenser microphone design.

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.
