Single Rode NTD Small Diaphragm Condenser Mic


The NT5 is RØDE'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.
