Dorset, U.K. (June 19, 2007)--This has been a busy year for Sontronics, with the launch of its Apollo stereo ribbon microphone and the new range of Ultima microphone cables. Now the company has introduced black versions of two of its condenser mics.
The new STC-2 Black is a sleek take on the STC-2 large-diaphragm, cardioid condenser microphone, featuring satin black finish, gold lettering and smooth sound. According to the company, due to its "evenly balanced frequency response, with a defined low end and detailed, open, top end, the STC-2 Black captures what's being recorded in all its color."
The STC-1 cardioid condenser instrument microphone has been updated for 2007, with remodeled porting around the capsule designed to capture more low end, making it applicable for miking drum kits and acoustic instruments. The STC-1 Black (also available as an STC-1S Black pair) features similar satin finish and gold lettering.
As Sontronic's founder Trevor Coley says, "Feedback from users of our Sigma ribbon mic released last year told us that the smart black finish was turning heads everywhere, so we decided to create black versions of STC-1, STC-1S and STC-2. They look fantastic, and we're really pleased with them, and now it seems everybody wants one."
The STC-1 Black, STC-1S Black and STC-2 Black are available now, and suggested prices are the same as the existing silver versions. The mics are distributed Omnisonic and Sonic 8 Limited.
