There are very few items in today's machine manufactured world that can claim to be 'Hand Made', and yet this is true of every RODE microphone.
RODE have a state of the art manufacturing plant in Sydney, Australia that is specially built for their needs using incredible cutting edge equipment, but that ultimately allows their engineers to hand-craft each mic.
RODE are the only microphone manufacturer to offer a 5 to 10 year warranty across their entire range of products. They know they can offer a 10 year warranty because they are confident that their microphones will last a lifetime, thanks to the meticulous manufacturing process that only RØDE employs. You won't find any bad solders caused by an overworked, underpaid plant worker on their products!
So when you buy a RØDE microphone you are also buying their product service guarantee - their customer support teams are available around the clock to provide insight on pre-sales questions, technical support on product issues, and even general recording advice.With rock-solid build quality and a high-power neodymium capsule, the RØDE M1 live dynamic microphone is designed to provide the very best performance, night after night. Its durability is backed-up by a lifetime warranty, following registration of purchase.
The M1's ergonomically designed all-metal body is engineered for maximum comfort when used as a handheld microphone. It feels robust, solid and perfectly balanced without being heavy, and handling noise is almost completely eliminated by the microphone's internal design.
Featuring a warm response that is incredibly defined for a dynamic microphone, the M1's smooth character and defined clarity offer incredible performance as a live vocal microphone. A tightly controlled cardioid polar pattern minimises spill and feedback.
