The NT 3's cardioid pick-up pattern effectively isolates source signal, and the output circuitry and diaphragm are manufactured to further minimize noise due from radio frequency interference or bad grounding. The NT 3 can be powered by either 48-volt phantom or a single 9-volt alkaline battery, and the convenient On/Off switch allows user flexibility and control for sound reinforcement applications.
