Capture Sounds With Detail And Control With The Rode NT55 Multi-Pattern 1/2" Condenser Microphone
Like the NT5, the RODE NT55 is a small-diaphragm, true-condenser cardioid microphone, sometimes referred to as a 'pencil mic'. The Rode NT55 adds both a three position pad (0, -10dB, -20dB) and a three-stage high pass filter (Off, 75Hz, 150Hz), and includes the interchangeable NT45-O omnidirectional capsule.
Intended for recording acoustic instruments, drum overheads, cymbals, and live performances, the compact externally polarized 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 filmmaking on a mic stand or boom.
Finished in durable satin nickel, the Rode NT55 available as a single microphone or as an acoustically matched pair.
The Rode NT55 is designed and made in Australia and covered by RODE's industry-leading 10-year warranty.
