The RØDE's NT55 MATCHED PAIR are a matched pair of tiny condenser microphone that are designed to represent vocalists and general instruments accurately in recording and sound reinforcement applications. The NT55 has a three-position pad switch for extra headroom when recording loud, peaked audio. Low-frequency noise is eliminated with a three-position low-cut filter switch. The tiny externally polarised mic uses a 1/2" capsule, an active J-FET impedance converter, and a bipolar output buffer to capture acoustic instruments, drum overheads, cymbals, and live performances. Its precise cardioid pickup pattern makes it excellent for use on a mic stand or boom as an indoor discussion microphone for filmmaking.
