Same goes for me..... I bought one after reading the SOS review and liked it a lot.... for ac. guitar and also for performing on stage for my voice. So I bought another one.... great value and great sound. A lot of people seemed to be weird about some Rode mics but this is a real sleeper.

Over the last couple of years I've bought probably six of these, some new, mostly used via eBay, since they are hugely versatile mics. Most of my work is industrial video and audio, so it's more ENG oriented than music.

Let's be clear. This is a very good mic, not just for the price but overall. If only for features, it would already be a great deal : Mute switch, Hi-Pass filter, 10 or 20dBs pad, obviously it runs off 48 volts phantom power, but will run from 24 volts up, and you can run it off a battery if...

Been using the Shock Mount to hold a Zoom H1 digital recorder on the hotshoe of my DSLR for improved audio.<br />It works great also on my SB800 flash stand as a table top recording device.

I now own 6 of these. I tried one and was just blown away. I have honestly been really impressed with Rode mics altogether. ( I own 4 different models for different uses. These being the most versitile of them all). The M-3 is a Cardiod Condensor....
