The Rode M5 patched pair of stereo pencil condensors are a great way to record high quality stereo sounds without breaking the bank! Of course there are loads of options that a matched pair open up beyond the usual XY configurations. Try experimenting with the Glyn Johns technique or even just micing the snare from above and below. You can get creative with the M5s because they sound so natural, what you hear is what you get!
Include two mic clips and two windshields.
Here's what Rode say about the M5 Matched Pair
Designed and made in Australia, the M5 is a compact 1/2” cardioid condenser microphone with low noise and a full frequency response. A result of many years’ experience building the award-winning NT5 microphone, RØDE 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 RØDE’s proprietary ceramic coating which offers a sleek matt black finish, and is supplied with WS5 windshields and RM5 stand mounts.
