oooh, I just got a Classic II and missed getting one of these black beauties. Check out the new RODE Classic II limited editions here. Only 500 made. 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 a celebrated 15 years as the Australian microphone manufacturer’s flagship model.
