Featuring 1/2" capsules, a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, maximum SPL handling of 140 dB, and durable ceramic coated bodies, this matched pair lays a hefty load of sonic possibilities at your feet. Two WS5 windshields and two RM5 stand mounts are also included. Set these two baddies up and let your tracking begin.
The Rode M5 Mic -- Based on the Popular Rode NT5Rode microphones are known for spotless audio capture and stellar bang-for-your-buck. In fact, Rode's commitment to high-performing condenser microphones has led their NT2-A to be described as the "World's Best Studio Microphone" at Frankfurt's esteemed Musikmesse tradeshow. While the Rode M5 mics found in this pair may not be a household name, they're based on the well-known Rode NT5 microphone. With this pair, you're getting the Rode name for a great price.
High Maximum SPL and Cardioid Polar PatternThis pair of microphones can take in a hefty dousing of decibels -- boasting a maximum SPL of 140 dB, they can certainly handle tracking drums without any distortion kicking in. Go ahead and put one on the hi-hat. The cardioid polar pattern on these two microphones allows for directional recording. Set them up in an X/Y or ORTF pattern on all sorts of instruments or ensembles.
Wide Frequency Response For Versatile ApplicationsThese two condensers capture a full frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. This keeps the door wide open for a virtually unlimited list of applications. Aside from being used as drum overheards, these babies work well for group vocals, guitars, hi-hats, wind instruments, string instruments, percussion, and a whole host of other options as well.
Lightweight and DurableThese small wonders are super-lightweight, at only .17 pounds. They're built with cool-looking and durable ceramic-coated bodies that hold up well to the test of time. Your two microphones come with two WS5 windshields and two RM5 stand mounts to get you going on your first recording session in no time.

Product DescriptionDesigned and made in Australia, the Rode M5 is a compact 1/2" cardioid condenser microphone with low noise and a full frequency response. A result of many years' experience building the award-winning NT5 microphone, RODE has succeeded in making a high-quality 'pencil' style permanently polarized condenser that will impress even the most demanding of artists and engineers.
Ideal for studio recording and live on stage, the M5 is equally at home on a range of acoustic instruments, choirs, or anywhere you would employ a small diaphragm condenser microphone, either individually or as a stereo array.
This matched pair has been carefully selected to ensure a variation of no more than 1dB sensitivity between the microphones. A premium foiled certificate is supplied to verify the authenticity of the pair.
The M5 is finished with RODE's proprietary ceramic coating which offers a sleek matt black finish, and is supplied with WS5 windshields and RM5 stand mounts
