Important information about purchasing from the US.
If you see a price that looks too good to be true, it probably is! Beware of counterfeit goods. Check our website to make sure you’re purchasing from an authorized RØDE reseller. For quick reference NO FBA reseller (FULFILLMENT BY AMAZON) on Amazon is authorized. You can view a current list of unauthorized US dealers here.
All tubes are microphonic to a certain degree. That means if you tap them when in circuit you will hear that sound in your signal. Some are much worse than others, and can cause problems when they are modulated by vibration, or in extreme cases even by the sound you are recording!
How do you get a low-microphonic tube? Order one with that specification. It will have been tested, with many rejected from a batch. On average RØDE fail 20% of all tubes, this ensures that the ones we do use will be low-noise and low-microphonic.
