The RØDE TF-5 represents a new standard in small diaphragm condensers. The all-new capsule is engineered to sub-micron tolerances, giving unprecedented consistency of tone and response.


The TF-5 features the hallmark clarity and airiness of other RØDE small diaphragm mics, and adds to this a warmth of tone which is often lacking in smaller ‘pencil mics’ of this type, making the TF-5 uniquely versatile.


The precision sonic pairing and beautiful tone of the TF-5 makes it perfect for use as a stereo pair in critical recordings, as well as ideal for capturing the nuances of an individual performance when used as a spot mic.


Imagined, designed and manufactured at RØDE’s state-of-the-art facility in Sydney, Australia, and featuring RØDE’s industry-leading 10-year warranty.


Crafted to perform magnificently in the most critical musical recordings, the TF-5 represents the ultimate expression of RØDE manufacturing expertise, acoustic design and sonic purity. Designed in collaboration with Grammy Award-winning sound engineer Tony Faulkner, the TF-5 sets a new benchmark in high-end microphone performance.


Pioneer. Legend. Maverick. Many words have been used to describe Tony Faulkner, the prolific and award-winning classical music recording engineer. But few of those words adequately capture his contribution to the field of music recording; his prolific career, his technical innovations and the body of wonderful recordings that feature his name. RØDE is proud to work with Tony Faulkner in crafting this exceptional microphone.
