After 15 years of the Classic microphone, RODE are closing out the range in considerable style

Date: 28/10/2011
RDE ClassicII To commemorate the Classic and Classic II tube microphones, RODE has announced a custom edition of its Classic II, exclusively limited to an edition of 500 worldwide.

 

The release of this microphone coincides with RODE’s decision to retire the RODE Classic lineage, following a celebrated 15 years as the Australian microphone manufacturer’s flagship model.

 

At the heart of the microphones’ ‘classic sound’ is the 6072 twin triode valve, as found in most of history’s most revered transducers. The transformer, custom designed by Jensen to perfectly match the 6072, pairs with the valve to provide the signature classic warmth.

 

Both the Classic and Classic II capsules are hand assembled dual pressure gradient transducers, sputtered with pure gold. The microphone body is machined from solid brass and polished by hand before coating with stain nickel.

 

This new limited edition Classic II microphone is the most exclusive offering that RODE has ever presented –– only 500 microphones will be crafted, and then the RODE Classic badge will be retired into audio history.

 

For the very first time the RODE Classic is finished in a lustrous matte black, with the ‘15 Years of Classic Sound’ logo proudly etched onto the microphone’s brass body to signify the microphone’s esteemed status as one of the most revered tube microphones of the last 30 years.

 

A second of the extremely rare 6072 twin triode tubes is supplied in a custom made, etched aluminium storage cylinder to ensure that this microphone’s classic sound will last for many years to come. A leather bound embossed collector’s coffee table book documents the history of RODE’s flagship microphone.

 

RODE’s reputation of providing outstanding product support and warranty is exemplified in the microphone’s lifetime warranty. Upon online registration the owner will receive a fully personalised titanium warranty card featuring their name and the serial number of their microphone.

 

The microphone’s aluminium case and power transformer are also finished in black, and marked with the commemorative logo.  The included 30’ (10m) cable features double-shielded, oxygen free copper wiring with heavy duty plugs and sockets. A suspension shock mount and stand mount are also included to complete the package.
