The TF-5 represents a new standard in small diaphragm condensers. The all-new capsule is engineered to sub-micron tolerances, giving unprecedented consistency of tone and response.
The TF-5 features the hallmark clarity and airiness of other RØDE small diaphragm mics, and adds to this a warmth of tone which is often lacking in smaller ‘pencil mics’ of this type, making the TF-5 uniquely versatile.
The precision sonic pairing and beautiful tone of the TF-5 makes it perfect for use as a stereo pair in critical recordings, as well as ideal for capturing the nuances of an individual performance when used as a spot mic.
Imagined, designed and manufactured at RØDE’s state-of-the-art facility in Sydney, Australia, and featuring RØDE’s industry-leading 10-year warranty.
Crafted to perform magnificently in the most critical musical recordings, the TF-5 represents the ultimate expression of RØDE manufacturing expertise, acoustic design and sonic purity. Designed in collaboration with Grammy Award-winning sound engineer Tony Faulkner, the TF-5 sets a new benchmark in high-end microphone performance.
