The Rode M1 is a handheld cardioid microphone designed for reliable reproduction of vocal speech, guitars and drums in concert venues or in professional settings. Its dynamic element utilises a neodymium magnet for high output without excessive preamp gain and delivers a frequency response of 75 Hz to 18kHz. The resulting tone is one that is smooth and defined with a mild bump at 200 Hz and a gentle rise from 4 to 10 kHz.
The cardioid polar pattern excels at rejecting sound at its off-axis points, yielding enhanced immunity to feedback. The balanced, low-impedance output and low handling noise maintain signal integrity and the durable all-metal construction delivers tour-worthy toughness. The M1's gold-plated XLR 3-pin output ensures high conductivity and compatibility with most microphones preamps. It also includes a microphone clip and a padded zip pouch.
