Perfect for Capturing Delicate Details on Acoustic Instruments!
The Rode NT55 small-diaphragm condenser microphone utilizes the 1/2" gold sputtered true condenser transducer used in the internationally renowned Rode NT5 microphone. The NT55 upgrades the NT5, adding switchable omni and cardioid capsules, a three-position 0/-10/-20 dB pad, and a three-position high-pass filter.
A Workhorse Small-Diaphragm Condenser
The NT55 is a low-noise, balanced output microphone, exhibiting a wide dynamic range and full frequency response. Although clearly relevant to instrument miking, the NT55 is extremely well-suited to any situation where a small, unobtrusive, but powerful microphone system is required.
Capture Acoustic Instruments
The NT55 is intended for Film, Television, Broadcast, Live Performance, Theatre, Surround and Environmental recording applications, or wherever your imagination takes you. These small-diaphragm condenser mics are ideal for capturing drum overheads, acoustic piano, room ensembles, acoustic guitar, violin, saxophone, and more.
Switchable Omni and Cardioid Capsules
The NT55 comes with two different condenser microphone heads. Try an ORTF or X/Y pair with the cardioid capsules attached, or try the omni capsule for an incredibly natural-sounding spot mic.
Three-Position Pad and High-Pass Filter
The NT55 circuit incorporates a three-position variable pad with 0 dB, -10 dB or -20 dB attenuation, and a three-position variable high-pass filter that enables you to step from a flat response to 75 or 150 Hz high-pass filter.
