Like the NT5, the RODE NT55 is a small-diaphragm, true-condenser cardioid microphone, sometimes referred to as a 'pencil mic'.
The NT55 adds both a three position pad (0, -10 dB, -20 dB) and three stage high pass filter (Off, 75 Hz, 150 Hz), and includes the interchangeable NT45-O omnidirectional capsule.

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.

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

Finished in durable satin nickel, the NT55 available as a single microphone or as an acoustically matched pair.

The NT55 is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RODE's industry leading 10 year warranty.
