RODE NT5 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Stereo Pair

Overview

The Rode NT5 is the flagship small-diaphragm cardioid condenser mic for RODE, offering up the perfect pencil mic for recording in virtually any situation. Drum overheads, acoustic instruments, close-mic'ing cymbals, even recording live performances -- the RODE NT5 does it all. Low self-noise and a full frequency response give the NT5 an awesome clarity of sound, and its cardioid pickup pattern is tight; tight enough, in fact, that it would be great for almost any live application, rejecting the noise you don't want getting through. And the NT5 even works with an interchangeable omnidirectional capsule for even further versatility.

The only issue, they pic…
