RODE microphones have earned a great reputation in the past several years for providing excellent studio-quality microphones at a price that’s more accessible to many people. If you’re looking for affordable small-diaphragm condenser microphones, take a look at a matched pair of RODE NT5s. These mics give you the kind of performance that far exceeds what you’d expect from condensers at this price point. NT5s are excellent mics for recording practically any instrument — guitar, flute, violin, saxophone, drums, you name it! As soon as you start recording with RODE NT5s, you’ll understand why they’ve become popular, not only in project studios but in many pro studios as well.
