Overview

The RØDE 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 RØDE 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.
