    How do the Rode NT5 mics sound as drum kit overheads?

    Rode NT5

    A true matched pair with tight cardioid pickup. This pair provides a very realistic stereo image in both X-Y as well as spaced configurations. When used within 2 ft (overhead) provides realistic punchy toms and snare pickup and clean cymbals. Even when used as the only drum recording option picks up the kick sound rather well.
