The TF-5 represent 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 unique warmth of tone which is often lacking in smaller ‘pencil mics’ of this type, making the TF-5 uniquely versatile.

  • Precision-paired small diaphragm cardioid condenser microphones
  • Ultra-low noise
  • Flat frequency response
  • Tight cardioid directivity
  • Warm, accurate sound
  • Suitable for the most critical recording applications
  • Designed in collaboration with Grammy® award winning classical producer and engineer, Tony Faulkner

TF-5 Reviews
TF-5 Reviews

They’re a beautifully-engineered matched pair of microphones that were worth the wait... If you’re a working pro looking for more mics to expand your kit, or you’re ready to move up from project to pro, I honestly cannot see the point in looking beyond a pair of TF-5s – unless you’ve already got them.
