      Comments about Rode Broadcaster - Condenser Microphone:

      I am the host of a short show on PBS in NJ. I had been recording my voice-overs at the filmmakers studio using the recorder in his camera. I decided for convenience to buy a microphone, recorder and earphones to record the voice overs at home and send the filmmaker the sound clips via the internet.
      The first thing I noticed was the amazing quality .. better that what we had been using and his camera is top shelf. When we cut from me on camera to the voice overs using the Rode the higher quality is noticeable. I highly recommend it.

        Comments about Rode Broadcaster - Condenser Microphone:

        I use this mic in a small community radio station. the sound quality was instantly noticed by listeners. It has a nice warm sound with clear mids and tops straight into the mixer with 48V that makes evry one sound like a pro. We don't use a wind shield so now after 4 years it's showing signs of rust in the grill which has no effect on functionality. Great for Broadcast. I would recommend this mic.
