RØDE Classic II Custom
To commemorate the Classic and Classic II tube microphones, RØDE has announced a custom edition of its Classic II, exclusively limited to an edition of 500 worldwide.
The release of this microphone coincides with RØDE’s decision to retire the RØDE Classic lineage, following 15 years as the Australian microphone manufacturer’s flagship model.
At the heart of the microphones’ ‘sound is the 6072 twin triode valve. The transformer, designed by Jensen to match the 6072, pairs with the valve to provide warmth.
Both the Classic and Classic II capsules are dual pressure gradient transducers, sputtered with gold. The microphone body is machined from solid brass and polished by hand before coating with stain nickel.
Only 500 microphones will be crafted, and then the RØDE Classic badge will be retired into audio history.
For the very first time the RØDE Classic is finished in a matte black, with the ‘15 Years of Classic Sound’ logo etched onto the microphone’s brass body.
A second of the 6072 twin triode tubes is supplied in a custom made, etched aluminium storage cylinder. A leather bound embossed collector’s coffee table book documents the history of RØDE’s flagship microphone.
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 plugs and sockets. A suspension shock mount and stand mount are also included to complete the package.
