RØDE Releases MicDrop – a Lavalier Cable Weight

The small things make the biggest difference, especially in day-to-day life. It seems that guys from RODE Microphone know that pretty well. The company has just announced its latest product – the RODE MicDrop. Nope, it’s not another fancy mic nor a pocket recorder, it’s a simple cable weight that makes mic-ing up talent with a lavalier microphone quick and easy.

In a nutshell, MicDrop helps to pull the microphone cable downwards through clothing allowing you to easily plug it into a bodypack transmitter or recording device, saving time and minimizing disruption while recording. MicDrop is compatible with all RØDE lavalier microphones and is the perfect addition to any camera bag.

So, if you need a simple, yet effective solution in your daily workflow as a sound guy, RODE MicDrop got you covered. This tiny accessory is made from free-cutting brass with a satin nichel finish while weighing in at just 32g.

As expected, it’s compatible with most lavalier mics out there including all RODE offerings in the segment such as the RODELink Lav, Lavalier, Lavalier GO, smartLav+, just to name a few.
