Why We Love This Product!

Stick 'em Up!

If you're considering picking up a pair of RODE NT5s, you might be wondering what the catch is. There are lots of budget microphones being made these days. So how can you tell which ones are affordable and which ones are just cheap? After all, inexpensive microphones you have to keep replacing don't really save you any money. There is a simple way to make sure your affordable microphones are actually a good deal: take a good long look at them and make sure the name RODE is printed on them somewhere. Seriously, these guys know the secret to building excellent-sounding and affordable mics.


Believe it or not, RODE NT5s have been used by many pro engineers to capture everything from drums to pianos and acoustic guitars on tons of successful records. They use transformerless circuitry to avoid any unnecessary self-noise, and their surface-mounted real condenser elements deliver crystal-clear, full-frequency performance. And how cool is this? When you pick up a matched pair of RODE NT5 small condenser mics, you don't just get a pair of excellent condenser mics for the price of one, you also get a full accessory kit that includes stand mounts, wind shields, and a hard case as well.
