This is my favourite mic for recording acoustic guitar and drums, it's just perfect.

I used it a couple of times for vocals, on max it picks up sounds from the neighbours house lol.

This is the second M3 I've purchased - so that in itself gives a hint as to how satisfied I've been with this mic.

As with other Rode products the M3 is VERY solidly built and feels like a substantial piece of kit. It comes nicely packaged with a leatherette pouch and a very good quality mic clip, a well as a basic foam windshield. The M3 also comes with Rode's impressive warranty.

At this price point, the M3 has some impressive and very useful features - pad switch, a bass roll-off filter, and the option to power it by battery - very handy if no phantom power is available. This could make it a good option for field recording or news-gathering/interviewing applications.

In use I've found this to be an extremely versatile mic - my first test involved an interview-style recording of a presentation my girlfriend was preparing for her job. She was quite taken aback on hearing her voice played back - it was very cleanly recorded, very intelligble and with nice full lows and good midrange clarity. This was done through Motu preamps - so not exactly boutique quality pre's but nonetheless the M3 delivered excellent sound.

I've used it on a variety of sources since - it handled percussion very adequately (bongo drums) and I've used it for single mic'ing of a glockenspiel with respectable results. I've also used a stereo pair during studio rehearsals to capture a trio of backing vocalists, with excellent results.

I can't really fault this product - at the asking price it represents excellent value for money and personally I would favour these over a well-known industry standard dynamic mic for sheer flexiblility. The only slight negative I can think of is that these are fairly large microphones so may not suit every situation. for me this is not a problem, but I can imagine situations where a less bulky mic might be more appropriate.

I would highly recommend this microphone to anyone looking for a flexible workhorse SDC on a tight budget, and I can see myself investing in a few more of them in future.

Great all rounder, not perfect but a good option for cheeper setups

Could do with a mic pre amp to get the best out of it but the sound is definitely useable for song vocals on a budget.

The NT1-A package with the pop shield would be my first choice but this amp is handy enough for most routines including recording drums or guitar - 10 or - 20db option is useful as is the low pass filter which i have turned on most of the time for vocals. The option to self power from 9 volt battery is a plus if your not able to phantom power, a lot of mic for the money.

Really nice instrument mic, very sturdy

I have to say, I really like this microphone. For a pretty cheap price it gives really clear, crisp acoustic guitar recordings. The full-metal casing feels very sturdy and safe, and the on/off/low-cut filter switch is great. It can be phantom powered but also powered by a 9V battery within the mic itself which is a fantastic feature I think, giving a bit more flexibility with the type of mixing desks and soundcards you can plug it into. It comes with a windshield too, which is useful. The only negative point is that the mic clip it came with is far too skinny for the mic, so much so that I had to actually unscrew the base of the mic to take it out after I had squeezed it into place.

Great mics!

I had a gig where i needed to mic a choir, so after doing some research I bought this mics. What to say, I wasn't disappointed. They are not the best mics for the job (let's be honest - they are not expensive either), but they do the work excellent. The sound was very good and warm. I was very satisfied.
After that, I used it on guitar cabinets, recordings,...
Once i had an opening of a festival and i used this mics for speach (people don't know how to stand in front of a mic, so the sm58 wasn't good for the job) and it was great help!
The sound that you get from the them is excellent (for the price you pay), you won't be disappointed even if you use them for some recordings of acoustic guitar and voice.
I have 4 of them, and they are now a must have in every live gig i do.
I would definitely recommend this mics, they are great all-around mics!
