Pour célébrer les “15 ans de son Classic”, RØDE a sorti cette édition collector du microphone à lampe Classic II, strictement limitée à 500 exemplaires dans le monde. Tant le Classic que le Classic II sont les fruits d’un engagement sans bornes de la part des ingénieurs RØDE. Tous les composants comme la capsule, le transformateur, la lampe, le corps ou le câble sont de la meilleure qualité disponible. Le “son classique” de ces microphones est dû à la lampe à double triode 6072, une perle qui se retrouve dans la plupart des micros les plus vénérés de l’histoire. Le son délivré par cette lampe est inégalé. Bien que sa production ait cessé il y a plus de 30 ans, RØDE a eu la chance de mettre la main sur un stock de ces lampes et les a utilisées exclusivement dans le Classic. Le transformateur, conçu sur mesure par Jensen pour la 6072, s’allie à la lampe pour délivrer un son d’une chaleur Classic caractéristique. Les capsules du Classic et du Classic II sont des doubles transducteurs de gradient de pression assemblés manuellement et traités par pulvérisation cathodique d’or pur. La conception à électrode centrale du Classic a été remplacée par une fixation sur le bord dans son successeur pour diminuer le niveau de bruit. Le Classic II propose neuf types de directivité, une atténuation (PAD) variable et des filtres passe-haut. Le corps du microphone est fabriqué en laiton massif et poli à la main avant d’être recouvert d’une finition nickel satiné. Pour la première fois, le RØDE Classic a une finition noire mate et la mention ‘15 Years of Classic Sound’ est gravée dans le corps en laiton du micro. Le corps du micro et le transformateur de puissance ont également une finition noire et portent le label de commémoration. Un exemplaire de rechange de la lampe à double triode 6072 (NOS) est fourni dans un cylindre en aluminium gravé pour assurer la survie du son classique de ce micro durant de très nombreuses années. Un livre à couverture en cuir estampée relate l’histoire du micro phare de RØDE. Cette édition commémorative du Classic II est livrée avec une garantie à vie pour veiller à ce qu’un microphone si exclusif reçoive toute l’attention qu’il mérite. Lors de l’enregistrement en ligne du microphone, le détenteur recevra une carte de garantie personnalisée en titane, portant son nom. Le RØDE Classic II est conçu et fabriqué en Australie.

My vocals got clarity & presence at the same time, I've got to have this Mic.

Snoop Dogg

To me, the RØDE Classic II is the modern version of the great old tube mics we all love. A simple, perfect balance of low end warmth and smooth, articulate top end. We ended up using the Classic II for drum room mics, acoustic guitar, percussion and every single vocal on the new Loaded album.

Duff McKagan

As a vocal mic it offers a great natural tone with a hint of sweetness... A controlled singer can nicely play to this mic's proximity effect and get a great intimate tone with ease.

This mic is very well suited for jazz, classical, solo folk and any vocal style where pristine, open and real are your aural objectives.

Acoustic guitar (my favourite use) really shows off this mic's big top end, and it does so without sacrificing the low mids. Here it really highlights how balanced the microphone is tonally...

I really liked the Classic II as a front-of-kit mic for a jazz drummer...

What impressed me the most about the Classic II is something we usually associate with mic pres and not as often with mics, but this mics stacks unbelievably well. In other words, this mic offers a nice coherent and unimposing sound on songs where it was the only mic used, making it a wonderful choice as your one and only high-end tube mic. Again, think realism and naturalness over character.

It's hard to argue with a microphone with over a decade of dedicated service, and not hard to see why it has been left in service this long. As a final note, since of come from a family of dealers of antiques and collectibles, ery prone to limited editions and all the snobbery it implies, let me restate that there are only 500 of these and then they are gone forever!

The RODE Classic II has a world-class look and feel and comes with first-class accessories-all packaged in a beautiful flight case that could probably withstand a Volvo driving over it. With nine polar patterns, two pad settings and its two-position highpass filter, it has the flexibility to tailor the instrument to deliver the sound that best suits your needs. Further, the microphone's price tag strikes me as quite modest. Bottom line: The RODE Classic II is a full-featured microphone with a big, full sound that delivers stellar results.

Roger Maycock
Mix Magazine

The Classic II is beautifully engineered, looks stunning and sounds like a top-league studio tube microphone. Its main application is obviously vocals, but it also works fine as a general-purpose instrument mic when recording anything from acoustic guitar to brass.

This is one of those mics that helps make the most of a singer's voice and places the vocal track squarely at the front of the soundstage. If you can only afford one really good large-diaphragm mic that has to sound good on everything, and you want the tube sound, this model deserves to come very close to the top of your shortlist, regardless of what price range you're looking at.

RØDE made miracle with this mic, I would say it is bargain considering aluminium case, shockmount and remote control unit...I prefer it to three times costlier mics

Sam Krulin

I have two Classic II mics and I must say they are right up there with the best and most expensive mics around; they actually produce instant stunning results

Paul Miller

I recorded the vocal on this track with a RØDE Classic II. I released it last year and is currently receiving airplay round the world. Just thought I’d send it to you. It’s my version of Sam Cooke’s “Change Is Gonna Come.”

Love the mic. I’ve done a-b with other leading brands. The Classic II adds a warmth a breathes life into the vocal. Beautiful.
I don’t want to sing through anything else. The guitar solo was also through the Classic II.

Keep up the great work.

Tim Shaw

My RØDE Classic II always performs excellently without any inconsistencies. It has a clean clear sound which I find sits very well in mixes both dense and sparse. I like the pattern selector and the no-sag birdcage (shock-mount). This microphone has a wonderful big vintage shape. In my experience, singers respond to the look of the microphone almost as much as they do to their headphone mix, and that response can be heard in their performance.

Thadeus Corea - Blue Man Group/Jaguar Recording Studio

I recently upgraded my microphone collection to include a tube microphone. After shopping around and demoing various microphones to include Neumann tube microphones in this price range I have to say that this is the best of its class. This baby screams pro!! More options than any other microphones at this price and built like a tank.
