Magazine Reviews
Sound on Sound, November 2007 "A well-engineered cardioid electret microphone that is capable of handling just about anything, with a remarkable degree of competence for the price. Smooth-sounding, with good extension at both ends of the spectrum, and the ability to cope with high SPLs, this is a very flexible mic, aided further by its ability to run on an internal 9V battery or phantom power."

    Tried as an alternative to the AKG c1000's. Not as bright sounding but a good quality robust microphone. I bring this mine on every job as they sound good in most applications. Good for close and ambient mic techniques and can handle high SPLs with the internal PAD switch.

    I had borrowed a friend's pair of Rode NT3s, and really liked them on acoustic guitars and vocals. I couldn't justify the cost for my project studio, so I plumped for a Rode M3 from Studiospares. It's a fantastic mic for the money; it sounds much better than the £70-ish I paid. Is it as good as the NT3? Probably not, but the distance in money doesn't reflect the distance in quality. I will probably buy a second one in time; I am very pleased with the purchase.
