Why We Love This Product!

Seriously, Keep One of These Mics Around!

When it's time to record, don't mess around - get results and get 'em right the first time. You know what's so cool about the RODE M3? Simple: there's no wrong way to use it. Seriously, this microphone is so simple and yet sounds do good that there's absolutely no way to mess using it up. In the studio, on location, live, whatever you need - any time you want clear, noise-free, and low-distortion audio, you can count on this little wonder. Now, that's not saying it isn't better on some instruments than on others... but the M3 will work on just about anything. If you really want to hear it shine, put it on acoustic guitar. Then, you'll understand right away why lots of professional engineers pass over their expensive, big-name microphones in favor of the RODE M3. If you're serious about recording, make sure you've got a RODE M3 in your rig - you'll never know when it's just the right microphone to grab.
