Rode NTG-3B Broadcast-Grade Professional Shotgun Microphone - Black
  • RCNTG3 weather resistant aluminum storage cylinder ZP2 zip pouch
  • WSNTG3 wind shield
  • RM5 stand mount


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 confi dent 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)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounding Good Well built, good sounding microphone, works well with the Sony FS5. Use the supplied blue ring to tighten the plug and avoid external cable movement. The version in black makes it more discrete. Performs as expected. Can hear the difference compared with cheaper alternatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Worthy Upgrade! Having previously owned the NTG-2, I have always been hearing about how amazing the NTG-3 is. So I took the leap and found these statements are absolutely true.

The NTG-3 has a hot input in comparison to the NTG-2 which is great so I'm not pushing the pre-amps on the Zoom H4n which can noisy at high levels. The NTG-3 is smaller but delivers highly increased sound quality compared to the NTG-2.

Another benefit over going for something like the Sennheiser MKH 416 is the wider pick up pattern. Not always do I have a professional sound guy on the boom, so the NTG-3 offers more forgiveness while still offering comparable audio quality at a lower price.

I liked the black colour better and it also comes with a carrying tube as well. This is a professional grade microphone and well worth the price!
