Rode NT55 Multi-Pattern Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphones (Matched Pair)

The Rode NT55 Multi-Pattern Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphones (Matched Pair) adds an included interchangeable omni-directional capsule together with adjustable pad and high pass filters to the great value previously established by the more basic Rode NT5 (Matched Pair).

Rode NT55 Multi-Pattern Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphones (Matched Pair) Details

The R?DE NT55 Multi-Pattern Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphones (Matched Pair), like it's simpler little brother - the Rode NT5 Matched Pair, is a small-diaphragm, true-condenser cardioid microphone pair, sometimes referred to as 'pencil mics' or 'lipstick microphones'. The NT55 adds both a three position pad (0, -10dB, -20dB) and three stage high pass filter (Off, 75Hz, 150Hz), and includes the interchangeable NT45-O omnidirectional capsule for each NT55.

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.

Finished in durable satin nickel, the NT55 available as a single microphone or as an acoustically matched pair.

The NT55 is designed and made in Australia, and covered by R?DE's industry leading 10 year warranty.

What We Think

"The Rode NT55 Multi-Pattern Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphones (Matched Pair) makes for a perfect set for the cost conscious recordist looking to get quality that can be used while gaining the 3-position pad and HPF features usually only available on microphones costing much, much more. Rode's build quality and consistency of sound make for a convincing pair. And the included NT45-O Omni capsules give a more natural and less hypey soundstage. This kit is worthy of consideration."
