Single Rode NTD Small Diaphragm Condenser Mic

The NT5 is a pencil-type, small-diaphragm, mono condenser mic that was originally offered in matched pairs featuring sequential serial numbers so that they're close to each other all the way through manufacturing. A typical use of the NT5 would be as drum overheads or recording high-hats. We've found that they are detailed and very clear, and with just a tiny bit of compression they sound great. If you prefer the positioning flexibility afforded by a pair of small-diaphragm mics, then the NT5 is an easy choice. If you're lookng for a great-sounding, and very affordable single small-diaphragm condenser mic, the Rode NT5-S is a single NT5. Small-diaphragm condenser mics such as the NT5-S have an even and wider frequency response than large diaphragm condensers, handle higher SPLs, and can more accurately capture instruments with a pronounced high-frequency component (violins, for instance).
