First of all, I'm not a producer, just a drummer/multi instrumentalist that wanted to start recording some stuff. They came recommended to me from a friend who is a producer and I love him for it.

They arrived in their own little box that Rode made especially for them and it's of excellent quality - sturdy, travel safe and holds everything in place well. In the box it contains the mics, 2 microphone clips, and wind mufflers (I haven't used them but I'm guessing they work well).

I set them up as overheads for my drum kit and BAM, I fell in love with them. As I said, I'm no producer so I literally threw them over my kit, not knowing anything about phase issues or anything like that, and the sound was incredible. I've used them on many recordings and every time the producer/engineer has asked me what mics I'm using as my overheads.

I also used one of them to record acoustic guitar, a cheap squire one, and it sounded amazing as well - it was also just thrown in front of it with not much thought going into placement.

I highly recommend these mics, they're amazing value for money and will never go wrong!

Best little mics!

I have been using two matched pairs of Rode NT5's for live recordings of classical music, orchestras, choirs, small ensembles and bands, I have the Omni capsules for them as well as the Cardioid ones, simple to set up as they have no on body controls, the mics can handle high spf's and have relatively little self noise, so they are suited both to overheads for drums or suspended above a choir. the signal response is fairly flat and can need some brightening up, but doesn't turn harsh with EQ boosts, I would compare these mics against some of the more expensive options available, in my opinion they are better than the sE1a's (a similarly priced alternative) and considering their price, they stack up well against the AKG 451b's. both sets of microphones were bought from Thomann and have been delivered quickly and without fuss in solid plastic cases with foam windshields and solid little microphone clips

My go-to SDCs!

When I need a small diaphragm condenser microphone I turn to these. They're probably the best microphones of their type in this price range.

They sound very clear and crisp and are excellent when used for hi-hats, drum overheads, choirs and just about every other situation you would use a SDC for.

The capsule can be swapped out for an omni capsule (purchased separately) which only adds to the functionality.

Excellent build quality, but keep an eye on the locking screw for the XLR connection, sometimes it becomes slightly loose and can come out but is an easy fix!

I chose these mics mainly based on their reputation for good build quality and on their price point. I had some reservations as I've heard a few users complain they sound 'harsh' - but I've found them to be very decent sounding. They do exhibit a slight high end boost - but this is nothing that can't be sorted out with good mic placement technique and/or a touch of EQ.

My first impression was that they are extremely well packaged in a hard plastic case with storage for accessories, and with an additional storage pouch for the mics - handy if you don't want to carry the large case around. The included mic clips are of excellent quality, and hold the mics extremely securely.

The NT5s are very solid, look fantastic and feel extremely well made. I've been running them through Motu preamps and am more than happy with the results. They're extremely sensitive, and as a stereo pair I've found they capture a very realistic sound field (especially in ORTF configuration) As ever, mic placement is crucial to achieve good results, but I've found the NT5s pretty versatile on a variety of sources. Used as single spot mics on drums/percussion they've given excellent results - they shine particularly well on cymbals, hi-hats, crashes etc. I've also had very decent results mic'ing acoustic guitars with them (one on the neck, one near the bridge). I've had a quite a few comments from visitors to my studio who thought I was in the room playing when it was actually playback they were hearing!

At this price point I can't really fault the NT5s, and would recommend them highly as a first pair of SDCs for anyone on a tight budget. They look and feel like a quality product, and they certainly deliver excellent results. add to this the included accessories and extensive Rode warranty, and I think you have an excellent stereo set for the money.
