The RØDE NT6 is an extremely compact 1/2" cardioid condenser microphone, specifically designed for difficult mounting applications where the highest quality audio is required.

Although clearly relevant to instrument miking, the NT6 is extremely well suited to any situation where an unobtrusive but powerful microphone is required such as location recording.

The microphone is split into two modular components, joined by via a custom 3m (10') shielded, Kevlar® reinforced cable.

Featuring a gold-sputtered, true-condenser capsule, the NT6 capsule head measures 45mm (1.8”) in length and weighs only 42gm (1.5oz). The included all-metal, multi-position mounting ring provides 180 degrees of vertical rotation.

The NT6 preamp-body incorporates both a high-pass filter and pad setting. The high-pass filter can be introduced to cut vibration, rumble and undesired sounds sources under 80Hz, while the PAD offers a -10dB level attenuation, useful when recording louder sound sources.

The NT6's small form factor make it an ideal small diaphragm cardioid microphone for use in the Mid-Side (M/S) stereo array, in combination with a figure-8 large diaphragm microphone such as the NT2-A, NT2000 or K2.

The NT6 is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE's industry leading 10 year warranty.

I have to say that this is another accomplished offering from the Australian manufacturer... sonically it's hard to find fault with this microphone. The combination of diminuitive design smarts, reliability and sonic integrity will no doubt see this microphone become a popular choice in a wide variety of roles.

This microphone has plenty of top-end airiness, but it doesn't sound at all harsh. What's more, it goes very deep... The NT6 retains its even and neutral response throughout the frequency range.
