What we say:

At A Glance:

The Rode M3 is an extremely versatile end address condenser microphone. Suitable for recording voice, instruments and even for use in sound design, the M3 offers a natural yet focussed capture of sound.

Features We Love:

Switch it Up

As condenser microphones are extremely sensitive, the M3 features a set of switches to extend its uses. This includes a pad switch, which slightly dampens its sensitivity for use on loud sources. This allows you to record drums or guitar amps without the mic distorting. The M3 also features a high pass filter switch, which cuts out frequencies below 80Hz and is ideal for preventing unwanted rumbling and hand noise.

Got the Power

Being a condenser, the M3 does require power, this can be supplied via phantom power from your desk or audio interface, or by using a 9v battery in the mic. This means that the mic is comfortable for use in the studio and outside.

10 Year Warranty

Once registered via your Rode account, your microphone is covered by the Rode 10 year extended warranty, giving you the peace of mind that your investment will be protected for many years to come.

Great quality and value for money

Joanna L. - 10/12/2022

First rule of life - you get what you pay for. So this is a budget mic, don't expect ultimate performance. However this is a good mic. Seems very solidly made and the option of battery power or 48v phantom is useful. There is a good degree of transparency evident. I've only used it on acoustic guitar so far, positioned around 150cm away in the area of 12th to 14th fret. For the price it does a good, solid job; the tonal differences between a Martin J40, a Taylor 916 and a Gibson Hummingbird are all well captured. The sound from the M3 is a little on the bright side at the treble end but nothing that can't be eq'd. So if you are in the market for a good solid performer for your home studio, this Rode M3 needs to be on your short list.
