RODE NTG-3 Shotgun Mic

RODE NTG-3 Shotgun Mic

RODE NTG-3 Shotgun Mic


The NTG-3 competes head to head with the Sennheiser MKH-416 shotgun. While the 416 has been an industry standard for years, the $1199 price has kept many aspiring filmmakers at bay. With it’s aggressively focused pickup pattern and buttery smooth sound, the NTG-3 is poised to become the go to microphone for high definition shooters. You’ve got the hi-def picture, well here’s the hi-def sound. We tested the microphone both indoor and outdoor and were shocked at the results. Never before have we heard this caliber of sound for under $1000. Add a boom pole from one of our packages and you’re all set!

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.

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.

  • Designed to withstand adverse environmental conditions
  • 50% less self-noise than the majority of shotgun microphones
  • True condenser (externally RF biased)
  • Extremely low handling noise
  • High level of immunity to radio frequency broadcast
  • Superior broadcast sound quality
  • Weather resistant aluminium storage cylinder included

    Is sound Package 4 comes with wind cut fur that covers blimp in the windy invironment?

    • Guy 10 years ago

    I just received the Location Sound Package 3 and it looks great. Also the ENG-44 mixer. I have to dash off to a concert (as a performer) or I would put them through their paces right now. The top of this page shows the Blimp promotion, but I didn’t see any way to order the blimp with the package? Did I miss out here?

  3. ivars 10 years ago

    I am interested in Location sound package 3, just wondering if shockmount, mounts directly on Sony EX-1 camera???

    • Guy 10 years ago

      Yes, the SM3 shockmount will attach to any standard shoe mount – works great on the EX-1 and EX-1R
