Like the NT5, the RODE NT55 is a small-diaphragm, true-condenser 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.
The NT55 is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RODE's industry leading 10 year warranty. Supplied with: NT45-O heads, RM5 clips, WS5 foam gags and a Matched Pair certificate for your office wall.
