The M3 Condenser Microphone from Rode is an end address microphone that is great for recording applications, sound reinforcement, and more. This low-noise, wide-response condenser microphone features a heavy-duty metal body, low self-noise, battery status LED, and a high pass filter. A three position Pad switch maximizes headroom up to -10 dB and -20 dB. The M3 is capable of either 24-48V phantom power or internal 9V alkaline battery. The compact, versatile M3 is designed for maximum flexibility and is great for general instrument or vocal capturing.
The RØDE M3 is a highly versatile end-address condenser microphone, designed to be completely at home in the studio, on stage or on location. It is equally suitable as an instrument microphone for guitars, drums and percussion or even vocals.
Featuring a heavy duty metal body and internally shock mounted 1/2″ condenser capsule mounted for end-address, the M3 can be powered either via P48 phantom power, or an internal 9V battery.
A -10dB and -20dB level attenuator (pad), selectable from inside the battery compartment, allows recording of loud sound sources, such as a guitar amplifier or snare drum. A high-pass filter selectable on the microphone power switch introduces a filter at 80Hz to reduce low frequency sounds and handling noise.
The RØDE M3 microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones’ industry leading 10 year warranty.
