Rode Classic II Limited Edition Vintage-Voiced Valve Microphone


  • The centre-electrode design found in the Classic was modified to edge-terminated in its successor, resulting in a slightly lower noise level. The Classic II features nine polar patterns, in addition to a variable PAD and high pass filters.
  • The microphone body is machined from solid brass and polished by hand before coating with stain nickel. For the very first time the R?DE Classic is finished in a lustrous matte black, with the ’15 Years of Classic Sound’ logo proudly etched onto the microphone’s brass body.
  • The microphone case and power transformer are also finished in black, and marked with the commemorative logo. A second 6072 twin triode tube (NOS) is supplied in an etched aluminium storage cylinder to ensure that this microphone’s classic sound will last for many years to come.
  • Also included is a leather bound embossed collector’s coffee table book, documenting the history of R?DE’s flagship microphone.
  • This commemorative edition of the Classic II receives a lifetime warranty to ensure such an exclusive microphone receives the care and attention it deserves. Upon online registration of the microphone, the owner will receive a personalised titanium warranty card featuring their name.
  • The R?DE Classic II is designed and made in Australia, and covered by R?DE Microphones’ industry leading 10 year warranty.

The Classic and Classic II microphones were a labour of love for R?DE. Each element, be it the capsule, the transformer, the valve, the body or the cable were of the finest quality available.

At the heart of both microphones is the 6072 twin triode valve, as found in most of history’s most revered transducers. Its unparalleled sonic characteristics have made it incredibly sought after, and with production ceasing over 30 years ago R?DE were lucky to secure a production quantity of “new old stock” to be used exclusively in the Classic.

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.
