  • Excerpt: I am very happy with these microphones. Use them with an upright piano facing the soundboard on the low and high side. Excellent pickup and clarity. Have also used the pair at wedding, positioned on mic stand (40in), to pick up the pastor, bride and groom.

Fantastic bang for the buck!

  • Excerpt: The NT5's are fantastic small diaphragm condensers that compete with much more expensive mics in their field. I've used these mics overheads for a drumset, miscellaneous persuasions, acoustic instruments like mandolin and guitar, and room mics.

Great Sound at an Affordable Price

  • Excerpt: I primarily use this mic on acoustic guitars, but it also works great on the bottom snare or as an overhead for drums. This microphone has such a vibrant, yet clean sound that has had a huge impact on my recording quality. I have also used the Rode NT1-A and have had great success with both.

Excelent Pair of Mics

  • Excerpt: I just used these mics to record a classical voice recital for a client's audition reel. These mics did the trick. I plugged them directly into my Zoom h4n with standard xlr cables and they were ready to go! (note: these mics use phantom power) I placed each mic 5-6 ft.

  • Excerpt: I have been doing sound for a few years now and I'm always looking for the next best thing and now i think i found it. I use the NT5 for field recording indoors for independent films and for live sound recording on drums and left and right of the room its great.

Using Live on Upright Piano

Anthony H, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Great pickup and clarity. Our church pianist is very pleased with the results. It's replacing a single SM57, with which we were fighting sufficient gain before feedback due to pianist's light playing style. BTW, using a Presonus StudioLive 24 board so it all sounds very nice now.

Good mic value

  • Excerpt: I already had one, this is the second one, great for recording acoustic guitar, or other acoustic instruments. This is not an issue to be concerned about but the microphone holder is very tight (same as my last one), you have to push quite hard to clip it in, However it doesn't seem to hurt it any.

Great Affordable Mics

  • Excerpt: These are not your top of the line Neumanns, but for the price you will be hard pressed to find mics that are much better. Very even frequency response, compact size, and cardiod polarity make these matched mics a perfect addition to any studio.
