The RØDE's NT6 condenser microphone is a professional general-purpose condenser microphone with flexible placement that makes it a good choice for instrument capture in recording and sound reinforcement applications. The NT6 has a detachable microphone head (capsule), as well as a separate body (output stage). These two components are connected by a 10' Kevlar-reinforced wire, which allows for flexible microphone attachment and placement. The cardioid polar pattern on the NT6 effectively reduces noise from off-axis ambient sounds and feedback. A -10 dB Pad switch adds headroom, enabling for the capturing of extremely loud signals like brass and percussion without noise or distortion.
