The Rode NTG4 Shotgun Microphone is a super-cardioid directional shotgun mic designed to give outstanding audio quality at an affordable price. This mic has a frequency response of 20 to 20,000 Hz, a sensitivity of -32dB, and a low signal to noise ratio of 78dB SPL. The NTG4 requires phantom power through the XLR. The first button on the mic gives a -10dB pad to reduce clipping on loud bursts. The middle button enables a 75 Hz high pass filter, effective at reducing low frequency rumbles. The last button is a high frequency boost, good at restoring some of the high sounds lost when placed in a blimp or dead cat.
