Compact 1/2" Cardioid Condenser Microphone with HPF and PAD
Great for acoustic instruments and drum overheads
The Rode NT55 is a single 1/2" diaphragm condenser Mic with removable cardioid and omni capsules and switchable pad & filter. Like the NT5, the RØDE NT55 is a small-diaphragm, true-condenser cardioid microphone, sometimes referred to as a 'pencil mic'. The NT55 adds both a three position pad (0, -10dB, -20dB) and 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 NT55 available as a single microphone or as an acoustically matched pair. The NT55 is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE's industry leading 10 year warranty.
