The NT3 is the definition of a studio workhorse. Featuring an end-address 3/4" gold-sputtered true-condenser transducer it provides incredible detail on almost any instrument you can imagine. Intended for studio, stage, and location work, this versatile handheld, stand, or boom-pole mounted microphone will give great results on drums, percussion, acoustic guitar, guitar amps, piano, and all acoustic instruments as well as detailed voice reproduction when used as a handheld presentation microphone or indoor boom mic. For further versatility the NT3 can be powered by either +48v phantom power, or via a 9V battery for situations when power isn't available via the console or camera. Its rugged and durable all-metal body and mesh head ensure that it is well protected both in the studio and out in the field.

We have used these for 3 years with a camcorder doing interviews. They are work horses. The sound is terrific and the mics last and last even with the 9 volt battery.
