The NT5 is RODE'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 polarised mic employs a 1/2 capsule, an active J-FET impedance converter with bipolar output buffer.

It's tight cardioid pickup pattern also makes it ideal for use as an indoor dialogue microphone for film-making on a mic stand or boom.
