The Rode TF5 Matched Pair Condenser Cardioid Microphones setting a new standard in small diaphragm condenser microphones. Røde engineered the new capsule to sub-micron tolerances in collaboration with Tony Faulkner, one of the most respected sound engineers in the classical music field, to create an unprecedented consistency of tone and response.

The TF-5 is the best small diaphragm condenser in the world, plain and simple.
We are proud of what we have achieved alongside Tony Faulkner. The degree of obsession that went into the design and development of this mic has set a new benchmark for our craft of high-end microphones

Peter Freedman AM, RØDE Founder and Chairman

The TF-5 features the hallmark clarity and airiness of other RØDE small diaphragm mics, and adds to this a unique warmth of tone which is often lacking in smaller ‘pencil mics’ of this type, making the TF-5 uniquely versatile.

Sub-micron precision-engineering

Imagined and designed in collaboration with Tony Faulkner and manufactured at RØDE’s state-of-the-art facility in Sydney the TF-5 capsule delivers breathtaking sonic transparency.

The TF-5 is designed to be no-compromise, very very low noise, very broad bandwidth, very clean.
Something which can be modified if you choose, but if you leave it, it sounds natural and clean and musical.

Tony Faulkner, , Grammy Award-winning classical music sound engineer

This results in an exceptionally low noise floor (14dbA), making the TF-5 suitable for the most critical recordings.
