Modern Live Condenser, Traditional Ice Cream Cone Look!Having gained worldwide acceptance and status as a awesome microphone company, Rode have, until the release of this milestone, concentrated its design efforts on the recording market. Introducing the S1, a microphone for the live performer in all of us.
RODE started the project S1 two years ago and found that there was a genuine need for a studio quality hand held microphone that could handle the beating of constant touring. Record with it during the day, and then take it to a gig at night", it's a killer for both jobs and RODE is so confident of its integrity, they have guaranteed for 10 years parts and labor even if accidentally damaged by the owner!
