The NTG3 is Rode's premier directional mic with superlative audio quality with a rich warm sound and a full frequency response. The mic's RF bias technology makes it almost completely resistant to moisture, ideal for recording in demanding environments where condensation might be an issue.
The NTG3 is an incredibly robust yet lightweight mic with a body made from solid brass and nickel plated with an anti-glare finish. A durable aluminium storage cylinder is supplied with the mic to provide ultimate protection for the NTG3. Because it is tightly sealed at both ends the cylinder is highly weatherproof, ideal for storage and transport.
"The audio from the NTG-3 was remarkably clear and bright, and it "popped" in the field. The NTG-3 stands out as a shotgun microphone. With its combination of clear sound, impressive technical specs and reasonable price, it's a piece of audio gear that will have a place in your kit for years to come." Videomaker
"I figured I'd put it to the test, so I ran a cable to my bathroom and cranked up the hot shower. To my surprise, the NTG-3 kept outputting clean audio, even as condensation drops began to form on the barrel of the mic itself." Professional Sound
