Rode’s latest mic is a collaboration with the Grammy-winning British independent classical recording engineer Tony Faulkner (above). The TF-5 is a cardioid condenser pencil mic with a low (14dBA) noise floor. Featuring a brand-new capsule, engineered to what Rode call “sub‑micron” tolerances, it is designed to be used as part of a matched stereo pair — although Rode assure us that it also makes a fine spot solo mic.

The mic is shipping now and is currently being sold in the US and UK as a matched stereo pair, with the manufacturer’s usual 10-year warranty and an included Rode stereo bar (pictured below) for £1299 in the UK$1499 in the USA.
