The Rode NT5 is a small but mighty cardioid condenser microphone that can be used in single or stereo set-ups both live and in the studio, and on a multitude of instruments.

The Rode NT5 has an incredibly low-noise, sensitive ½" gold-sputtered capsule mounted on an external rubber shock mount. With the NT5's 20 Hz- 20kHz frequency response and active J-FET impedance converter you will be sure to pick up every deep bass tone from the lowest note on a piano to the highest violin note.

Thanks to the Rode NT5's compact size being just under 12cm in length it is great on stage, as it is non-obtrusive and will squeeze in the smallest of gaps allowing you to get up close and personal to the instrument you are recording.

The Rode NT5 also comes in a matched pair, which is great for stereo X/Y recording, to capture a more complete sonic image.

The NT5 includes a carrying pouch to keep it protected when not in use. A tailored mic clip allows you to use it with all types of microphone stands. The detachable windshield makes it much easier to eliminate unwanted breathiness when recording vocals, and interference when recording outside.

Like all Rode microphones they are built to last with a 10-year warranty and solid cast metal construction, so you will be using this microphone for years to come.

For engineers/producers/artists who’re looking for versatility, it is worth noting that the Rode NT5's cardioid capsule can easily be removed and changed for the Rode NT45-O (Omni directional Capsule, which is sold separately.

If you’re looking for a professional-quality cardioid condenser microphone - that comes with an endorsement from none other than Bootsy Collins himself -, which is easy to use, solidly built and punches well above its weight, look no further than the awesome Rode NT5!
