The NT55 is a small 12.5mm gold-sputtered diaphragm condenser microphone. The capsule is the same used in the NT5 and is exchangeable. The cardioid and the NT-45 O omnidirectional capsule are included together with a metal storage box and a swivel stand mount. The microphone is equipped with a switchable 10 dB or 20 dB attenuation pad and a 75 Hz or 150 Hz low-cut filter. It is ideal for instrument recording, especially cymbals and drum overhead as well as for film dialogue recording applications on a boom or on a stand.
