The first thing that you have to remember when buying a RØDE mic is that these guys are absolute experts at what they do. They have their own factory in Australia, and all their mics are Hand Made.No mass produced Chinese robotics, these mics have been assembled by real people. So, on the back of their hugely successful USB Podcaster mic, this is a high quality microphone that was designed specifically for recording and broadcast situations, in this case it’s an analogue version of the Podcaster with an XLR connection in place of the USB. The mic is ‘voiced’ for the human voice with a High pass filter allowing clarity and a low noise floor. It’s a Cardioid polar pattern thus rejecting a lot of side noise, with an internal ‘pop’ filter and a quality Stainless steel body. If you’re into broadcasting or high end recording, this is a great mic to get you started.
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 RØDE microphone. RØDE 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. RØDE 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.
