    The capsules in the Rode NT4 and NT5 have identical specs, and every review I've seen says that the matched pair of NT5s, when mounted for coincident stereo recording sound identical to the NT4. So why is the NT4 priced 25% more than the NT5 Pair? I'd like to get a pair for recording...

    Rode NT5s or NT1000s for drum overheads?

    Hi everyone, I can't decide in between a pair of NT5's or a pair of NT1000's for drum overheads. I use overheads as the main mics, I place them to pickup the boom of the toms, not just the cymbals. I'm looking for a big open sound. The price difference is not an issue.

    Oktava MK012 -vs- Rode NT5

    Does anyone have comparison advise for these two condenser mics? I am looking for a pair, mainly to mic upright piano. As I live in Australia it is cheaper for me to buy NT5s though the reviews I have read seem to favour the MK012s.

    Are NT5s tough?

    Hi folks It's festival time and I'm thinking about tossing my NT5s into the mic box. Anyone know if they can take a few bumps and bruses? This should probably be in the live forum but I'm hoping that more of you will see this post here. Time to load that truck. cheers Roly
