Overview

The R˜DE M3 is an extremely versatile, low-noise wide-response, small diaphragm cardioid condenser than can save your bacon in a number of ways. For example, say you show up to record a gig and there's not enough phantom powered inputs left for miking an acoustic guitar or drum overheads. No sweat. Just an M3 or two, some 9-volt batteries, and you're good to go. Of course, if phantom power is not an issue and you're just looking for an affordable studio mic for acoustic guitars, drum overheads, or percussive instruments that can capture the transients and highs with excellent sound quality, the M3 has got you covered.

An end-address condenser microphone, the R˜DE M3 features a heavy-duty metal body, category-leading low self-noise, three stage pad (O, -10db, -20db), a battery status LED and a high-pass filter.

The M3 microphone comes complete with windshield and stand mount, and can be powered via a 9V battery or 24-48V Phantom.

hoooooooo d@mn

Comments about Rode Microphones M3 Multi-Powered Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

great sounding mic for the price, holy cow. the features and quality seem way out of this price range but if you're looking for a good small diaphragm condenser on a budget, this is a great choice. have only used on acoustic instruments and vocals so far but the sound is incredibly accurate and agreeable. when i upgrade my preamps im sure i'll be further blown away by the capability of these mics. was my first Rode purchase but won't be my last xD

Great Multipurpose MIC

By M. Williams

from Gilbert, AZ

Comments about Rode Microphones M3 Multi-Powered Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

This is a great everyday microphone to use in various situations. Power or no phantom power is no problem and this mic works very well in any and all situations. I've used for Nat Sounds, Spoken Word, and Mic'd various instruments. Exceeded expectations in all uses. Worked so well I bought a second.
