The New Standard
The TF-5 represents a new standard for small-diaphragm condenser microphones. Its state-of-the-art capsule is precision-engineered to sub-micron tolerances, giving it unprecedented consistency of tone and response. Crafted to perform magnificently in the most demanding musical recording applications, the TF-5 represents the ultimate expression of RØDE's manufacturing and acoustic design expertise.
