" electret microphone strong enough for the stage" - Le Joss

Audiofanzine
13 November 2012
  • Excerpt: I've had a year and a half, replacing conventional SM 58. The sound is much more faithful no psychics "quack quack", almost no color, quite directive to recover only the singer's voice. Actually seems indestructible. Sensitivity makes it more sensitive to feedback: attention to the position of returns. And sensitive to plosives i...

  • Excerpt: I bought two M3 a month ago on Thomann price of 76 € each, to use the atmosphere of my acoustic drums (overhead pair used in stereo). From the first tests, I was immediately captivated by the sound reproducing these microphones. Without any EQ settings, I can already have a sound very similar to what I was looking, soft, smooth wi...

" at that price, no risk!" - tono

7 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Thomann bought € 77. I took two at that price. I have already 2 NT3 for 6 years I've tried about everything and anything and that I fully comply. Attention, even if they have an obvious physical resemblance, the M3 and NT3 are very different. The NT3 is a capsule 3 / 4 inch, and no attenuator or cutting down. I took them as micro extra t...

  • Excerpt: The Rode M3 is a great all purpose microphone as it's flexible and sounds good almost anywhere you use it. While I've only used the mic inside of the recording studio, to me it seems best suited for recording on the go. I was definitely surprised to see the low price tag on the M3 considering all that it's good for. It definitely has a clear ...

M3

Music Tech Magazine
18 October 2007
  • Excerpt: The concept of powering condenser microphones with batteries is not a new one. Early Neumann U87s had a battery compartment to accommodate two 22.5v flashgun batteries, and Sony’s C48 had a compartment that accepted a 9v PP3. This was a useful feature at the time these mics first emerged, since few preamps provided phantom power.

  • Excerpt: I just got it. The appearance is plutt massive, much more imposing than condenser microphones for overheads I utiliss prcdemment. The advantage of its battery power allows me to connect a system that and get a Samson Airline wireless condenser microphone. This works well trs. The sound is pretty sweet, at least, far less aggressive than I used p...
