Overview

Matched pair of "pencil" microphones from Rode. The M5 Matched Pair are an ideal microphone set for studio or live capture. Stereo live recordings of festivals or drum overheads in the studio are both excellent environments for this highly detailed microphone pairing.

Designed and made in Australia, the M5 is a compact ½" cardioid condenser microphone with low noise and a full frequency response. A result of many years' experience building the award-winning NT5 microphone, R˜DE has succeeded in making a high-quality ˜pencil' style permanently polarized condenser that will impress even the most demanding of artists and engineers.
Ideal for studio recording and live on stage, the M5 is equally at home on a range of acoustic instruments, choirs, or anywhere you would employ a small diaphragm condenser microphone, either individually or as a stereo array.

This matched pair has been carefully selected to ensure a variation of no more than 1dB sensitivity between the microphones. A premium foiled certificate is supplied to verify the authenticity of the pair.

The M5 is finished with R˜DE's proprietary ceramic coating which offers a sleek matt black finish, and is supplied with WS5 windshields and RM5 stand mounts.

Comments about Rode Microphones M5 Compact 1/2" Condenser Microphone - Matched Pair:

I bought these for Overheads for my Drums.They were a perfect fit with the rest of my Mic setup.I use Shure Beta 57 Top Snare.Audix I5 on the Bottom and Shure SM57's on all the Toms and Shure Beta 52A Kick Mic.I record with a Zoom R24 and these Rode M5 were just the Finishing Touches I needed.Really made a BIG!! Difference.Really brought out my Kick Drum and just gave it a killer Stereo sound.I had my eye on these for a while.I wasn't disappointed when I got them.

Comments about Rode Microphones M5 Compact 1/2" Condenser Microphone - Matched Pair:

I've used Rode mics on film and video shoots and are my go-to mics that won't break the bank. At my local GC I asked about a pair of little mics hiding out at the bottom corner of the badly lit display case. Before the GC dude came a customer gave me the run-down on these little gems. I've seen and heard this customer's work on many a local venue. He's well respected and is ALWAYS working the job. Like me, he won't endorse what won't hold its weight on the job and especially to the ear. The EAR is the final judge! I bought a set for my drum overheads. Swapped out the Audix AD-51s (These are killer too!) Short story even shorter, I bought two more sets. They are nothing but exceptional. Hi SPL and they don't fizz. Got them on my Hi-hat sets, blocks and X-hats. I placed one inside a gong drum, YIKES!! Beautiful rumble. I'll keep the AD-51s up high because I like the roll-offs and these little gems down low. With angled cable connectors they can hide anywhere and not be in the way. I got them running to a Soundcraft MFX-16 board (best board for drums yet) and they'll replace the SM-81s. I've got a buyer for the 81s already. The dude who turned me on to M5!!
