Rode Classic II Overview
The Rode Classic II Microphone is Rode’s flagship studio microphone. The Classic II incorporates tube warmth and solid state output circuitry for an audio quality that delivers vintage warmth and richness on vocals and instruments, while minimizing noise. The Classic II packs a feature set that rivals tube condenser microphones at double the cost.
The 1-inch dual diaphragm provides a wide frequency response and 9 user switchable polar patterns (switched from power supply). 9 variations of omni-directional, cardioid and figure of 8 are all user switchable and enhance flexibility. A 2-position high pass filter switch eliminates low frequency noise and proximity effect @ 20Hz in -15dB and -21dB octaves. In addition the Classic II features a 2-position -10dB and -20dB pad switch for increasing headroom while capturing transient peaks. The Classic II is a viable solution for vocals and instruments in professional and project studio environments.
