Excellent location mic from Rode.
It's either phantom or battery powered (9v), and has a switchable high pass filter, along with a 3 stage pad (0, -10dB, -20dB) to help with a wide range of environments.
So, use it on a variety of instruments in the studio - it will sound great, but where this mic is perfectly suited is out in the field, grabbing samples for your next soundscape, or even as an interview microphone.
Comes with a stand mount adaptor (mic clip) and a windshield. The low handling noise is a real bonus for outdoor use.
In the box:
- M3 microphone
- RM3 stand adapter
- Foam windsock
- ZP1 protective pouch
Get to know M3 a little better without leaving your browser: check out the M3 Soundbooth library below to hear how it captures vocals and instruments in the studio.
