The NTG-3B is the result of years of development by R?DE engineers, providing the professional broadcast and film industries with an affordable yet uncompromising microphone. Using a technology known as RF-bias the R?DE NTG-3B is almost completely resistant to moisture, making it the only option when recording in any demanding environments where condensation is an issue. In addition to its robust properties the NTG-3B combines very low weight (163g), a durable anti-glare finish and incredibly low handling and self-noise (13dBA) to become R?DE's premier A/V microphone. When not in use the NTG-3B can be stored away in the included weather resistant aluminium storage cylinder, providing additional protection when travelling and storing the microphone.
