The Rode NT6 Microphone is an extremely compact 1/2 inch cardioid condenser microphone, specifically designed for difficult mounting applications where the highest quality audio is required.

The Rode NT6 Microphone is extremely well suited to any situation where a small and unobtrusive, yet powerful microphone system is required.

Although clearly relevant to instrument miking, the Rode NT6 is extremely well suited to any situation where an unobtrusive but powerful microphone is required such as location recording.

The Rode NT6 Microphone is split into two modular components, joined by via a custom 3m (10') shielded, Kevlar® reinforced cable.

Featuring a gold-sputtered, true-condenser capsule, the Rode NT6 capsule head measures 45mm (1.8”) in length and weighs only 42gm (1.5oz). The included all-metal, multi-position mounting ring provides 180 degrees of vertical rotation.

The Rode NT6 preamp-body incorporates both a high-pass filter and pad setting. The high-pass filter can be introduced to cut vibration, rumble and undesired sounds sources under 80Hz, while the PAD offers a -10dB level attenuation, useful when recording louder sound sources.

The Rode NT6's small form factor make it an ideal small diaphragm cardioid microphone for use in the Mid-Side (M/S) stereo array, in combination with a figure-8 large diaphragm microphone such as the NT2-A, NT2000 or K2.

The Rode NT6 is designed and made in Australia, and covered by Rode's industry leading 10 year warranty.

What We Think


The RODE NT6 creates a low-cost option for a small-footprint / low-profile broadcast-worthy small-diaphragm condenser microphone. It's perfect for when you need to get a mic into a tight space or just need to keep the visual impact to a minimum. It's basically a Rode NT5 (well, NT55, actually, since it has both the high-pass filter and pad settings) with the fittings and 10-feet if Kevlar reinforced cabling for getting the capsule remote from it's own preamp. So, you know that the Rode pedigree is there.
