RØDE Microphone Data

The data for some of the most popular models from RØDE went missing from our Microphones Buyers Guide published in March 2012. We are still not sure how this occurred, as plenty of other RØDE models made it in, but we wouldn't want anyone to miss out on being aware of them. 

The full spec for the missing models can be viewed below, and the entire RØDE range can be seen via the RØDE web site and that of their UK distributor Source Distribution.
