From Our Research Team:
The NT5's Big Brother!The Rode NT55 builds on the success of the NT5, providing an excellent mic for practically any recording application. The NT55 utilizes the 1/2" externally biased gold sputtered true condenser transducer used in the NT5. The NT55 is a state-of-the-art low noise balanced output microphone, exhibiting a wide dynamic range and full frequency response. The NT55 comes with 2 different condenser microphone heads to provide a variety of polar patterns. The NT55 is complemented with a diverse range of accessories to better facilitate positioning.
Rode NT55 At-a-Glance:
Cardioid and Omnidirectinal Capsules
The NT55 has the same sound quality, ease of use, and reliability of the NT5, but with the added feature of an NT45-O Omni capsule in every NT55 kit. This along with the supplied NT45-C Cardioid capsule makes the NT55 an unbeatable package for anyone wanting the most versatile small capsule system on the market. From drum overheads to acoustic guitar to ambient miking, the NT55 will capture it all.
3-position Pad and highpass Filter
The NT55 circuit incorporates a 3-position variable pad: 0, -10 or 20dB attenuation, and a 3-position variable highpass filter that enables you to step from a flat response to 75 or 150Hz highpass filter. The pad is invaluable for close miking loud sound sources without distortion, such as a snare drum. The highpass filter will prove handy as a means to limit the amount of ambient low-frequency rumble from the kick drum if used as overheads, or simply to minimize low-frequency noise for close miking of acoustic instruments.
Although clearly relevant to instrument miking, the NT55 is extremely well suited to situations where a small 'unobtrusive' but powerful microphone system is required. The NT55, is a state-of-the-art low noise balanced output microphone, exhibiting a wide dynamic range, and full frequency response. The result is a powerful and versatile condenser microphone intended for Live Performance, Studio recording, Film, Television, Broadcast, Theatre, Surround and Environmental recording applications or wherever your imagination takes you.

Incredible Mic !
by Ryan Sutton from Knoxville, TNI was completely blown away by the performance of this microphone. I called Sweetwater and said I need a mic that will pick up a 13 piece big band while still maintaining the live feel of the room wi... read more [+]th clarity and equal distribution of instrumentation. By using the NT55's omni-directional capsule, I accomplished exactly what I wanted ! (I am very picky) This mic went beyond my expectations. It is a great tool for anyone who films large events where you want to capture live instead of a studio sound. close [-]
