Rode NT5 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphones (Matched Pair)

Rode NT5 Pair Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphones

Rode NT5 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphones (Matched Pair) Details

The R?DE NT5 is R?DE'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 NT5 available as a single microphone or as an acoustically matched pair.

The NT5 is designed and made in Australia, and covered by R?DE's industry leading 10 year warranty.

A Match Made in Heaven May 3, 2014
Reviewer: Nick from Australia  
Rode make great mics (OK, I'm a parochial Aussie) and these are no exception.

Fantastic as overheads, on hi-hats and on acoustic instruments... clarity, body and finesse!  As a matched pair they challenge the so-called top-shelf mics!

Highly recommended

good mid price SDC May 17, 2012
Reviewer: Daniel Infield from Duluth, GA United States  
The Rode NT5 is a good quality small diaphragm mic for multiple applications.  I actually find them (and most of the Rode line) to be on the darker side and not super detailed in the transients (though some other reviews might disagree?).  This adversely affects them on drum overheads IMO relative to some of the higher end reference SDC's out there, but on the other hand for normally transient-heavy instruments that need to find a "place" in a mix (strings, rhythm guitar), that they do just fine.  The optional omni capsules increase their musicality on some sources, too.

Home Studio Gear October 12, 2010
Reviewer: JOHN D from Brisbane, Queensland Australia  
This matched pair of microphones arrived in a hard black plastic case with a soft foam insert which immediately allayed any concerns about shipping such delicate items.
My first purchase of any mike so whilst I make no claims on expertise, I know what I hear and they sound great. Perfect match for my Apogee Duet and Rokit 5's.

detailed pair of small diaphragm condensers September 27, 2010
Reviewer: Thomas Szy from Hellertown, PA United States  
I've owned the NT5's for about 3 years.  They yield a detailed and bright sound, not harsh, just bright.  I use them primarily on drum overheads, which is where i think they shine, as i prefer a brighter sounding mic with good stereo imaging for cymbals, transients, etc.  They also work well in a stereo pair for acoustic guitar, and anything else that would typically be suited for a SDC.  For just over $400 it's hard to find a better pair of SDC's.  Thanks Rode.
