Introducing the new NTG-3 – a precision, broadcast-grade shotgun microphone from RØDE Microphones


The NTG-3 is the result of years of development by RØDE engineers, providing the professional broadcast and film industries with an affordable yet uncompromising microphone.

Using a technology known as RF-bias the RØDE NTG-3 is almost completely resistant to moisture, making it the only option when recording in any demanding environments where condensation is an issue. Be it in a tropical rainforest, arid desert or sub-zero snowstorm the NTG-3 can be relied on to faithfully record audio where traditional condenser microphones would fail.

In addition to its robust properties the NTG-3 combines very low weight (163g), a durable anti-glare finish and

incredibly low handling and self-noise (13dBA) to become RØDE’s premier A/V microphone.

When not in use the NTG-3 can be stored away in the included weather resistant aluminium storage cylinder, providing additional protection when travelling and storing the microphone.

“The new NTG-3 is one of RØDE’s most exciting microphones.” commented Peter Freedman, President of RØDE Microphones. “I am confident that the robustness afforded by RF bias technology, combined with incredibly low self-noise and handling noise make the NTG-3 a clear market leader in the broadcast-grade shotgun microphone category.”

Australian sound recording guru, Ric Creaser (60 Minutes, Survivor, Australian Idol), was given the opportunity to field test the NTG-3 as a part of RØDE’s thorough product development. “The NTG-3 has amazingly low handling noise, which will make it a boom operator’s dream mic” observed Ric.

“The audio quality is exceptional; providing the full bodied, robust, punchy audio I have come to expect from only the most expensive high-end broadcast shotgun microphones.”

“Also the off axis capability is a little wider than a 416, therefore more forgiving when trying to capture two spaced sources; a real bonus. I plan to use the RØDE NTG-3 as my main microphone from now on – it is outstanding.”

Key features:

• Designed to withstand adverse environmental conditions

• 50% less self-noise than the majority of shotgun mics

• True condenser (externally RF biased)

• Extremely low handling noise

• High level of immunity to radio frequency interference

• High sensitivity

• Superior broadcast sound quality

• Weather resistant aluminium storage cylinder included

• Designed and manufactured in Australia

• 10 year warranty (online registration required)
