The Rode Classic represents the epitome of microphone performance and design which is the result of a 'no compromise' endeavour from Rode to develop a microphone that performs on par with renowned, vintage European microphones but at a more reasonable price point.

A GE 6072 twin triode valve is at the heart of the Classic and contributes to it's unique sound quality along with a dual pressure gradient transducer, custom designed Jensen transformer and careful compenent selection.

The Classic includes a dedicated PSU so phantom power from a console/recorder is not required. The PSU unit also offers controls for polar pattern, HPF (low-cut) and PAD.
