Designed to withstand adverse environmental conditions
50% less self-noise than the majority of shotgun microphones
True condenser (externally RF biased)
Extremely low handling noise
High level of immunity to radio frequency broadcast
Superior broadcast sound quality
Weather resistant aluminum storage cylinder included
The NTG-3 is the result of years of development by RØDE engineers, providing the professional broadcast and film industries with an affordable yet uncompromising microphone.
Using a technology known as RF-bias the RØDE NTG-3 is almost completely resistant to moisture, making it the only option when recording in any demanding environments where condensation is an issue.
In addition to its robust properties the NTG-3 combines very low weight (163g), a durable anti-glare finish and incredibly low handling and self-noise (13dBA) to become RØDE’s premier A/V microphone.
When not in use the NTG-3 can be stored away in the included weather resistant aluminum storage cylinder, providing additional protection when traveling and storing the microphone.
