Rode NT55 Matched Pair Cardioid Condenser Microphones w/ AxcessAbles XLR Cables and Microphone Stands


Regular price $899.00

The NT55 is a versatile small-diaphragm condenser microphone designed for critical recording applications. Featuring a 1/2-inch gold-sputtered cardioid condenser capsule, it delivers a smooth, balanced sound with very low self-noise. For added flexibility, it features a three-position pad (0, -10dB, -20dB) and three-stage high-pass filter (flat, 75Hz, 150Hz) and comes with the NT45-O interchangeable omnidirectional capsule.

Its exceptionally accurate cardioid polar pattern and wide frequency response make the NT55 ideal for recording everything from acoustic instruments to drum overheads and cymbals to live performances and dialogue on-location.

Also available as a certified match pair for stereo recording.
