I bought these mics to amplify a choir for some community events. They perform perfectly both using the internal battery and with phantom power. Also very good for micing up acoustic guitars and cymbals

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!

the Rode mics i bought a while back have proven a good and on some fronts even better microphone then the one well known microphone which it clearly imitates.
the sound is very warm and the pads are very usefull.
it can handle high volumes and runs on battery when not having phantom power available.
the batterytime is awesomes compaired to the mic it copies and the sound was overall about the same.
it might be a big microphone but the sound is also big.
it is a good value for money microphone for the person with a small wallet.
i recommend it highly

Yeah I don't think this is good for recording guitars , its very muddy the sound and get a much better result with the condenser mics I have.

Great for vocal use

I'm an audio technician in my church and we recently bought six of Rode M3's. My main intention was to use it with choirs. However, it has not only proven as excellent mic for miking a choir but also for solo singers. It has low cut filter built in, but I never had to use it. However I do like to put windscreen foam on when giving it to solo singers, which comes with it.
One guy is even using it for beatboxing with great results.
Some singers prefer having a mic handheld. I haven't noticed any handling noise with M3.
In conclusion, I'm happy with our purchase, no regrets
