Might I say we have a number or Rode mics here at the School of Music and I have been impressed with the quality particularly in light of their price and I have passed these recommendations on to my students.

There is only one way to describe this microphone [M1] as a whole if you are willing to compare it to a microphone that is familiar to us all... the SM58 killer.

RØDE has become my "go to" manufacturer for my studio mics. Now I can add great customer service to the list of reasons to use RØDE microphones

The sound is much, much better with the VideoMic than with the standard microphone… There’s less environmental sound when recording voice; less reverb from the ‘room’, and less background noise. The voice itself is clear and crisp without being sibilant.

I shot all of the material hand-held, positively inviting handling noise. But there wasn’t any. Even when deliberately waving the camera around the Lyre suspension did its job. Compare this to using the camera mic, which picks up any contact with the camera body or lens.

There was virtually no handling noise on the long pole shots with a lot of movement – I was surprised because the [NTG3] has a very warm sound and that’s usually problematic when booming motion shots.

Thanks for being a company that does things the right way, stands behind your products and takes care of its customers. Your qualities are rare indeed in this age of leaning out the supply chain and settling for less.

I LOVE my NTG3 for recording voice-over auditions at home... It has become my go-to mic for all my VO audition demos, above and beyond my cardioid condenser mics and my SM7B dynamic. Rich, full sound, crisp clarity, off axis cancellation. Perfection. Cheers RØDE, you made a fan out of me!

Throughout the years I've found the NT1-A to be one of the most reliable and best sounding mics I've ever used. I wanted to thank you for making my life/job that much easier by making it that much simpler to get amazing sound right from the get-go.
