Los Angeles, CA (March 12, 2019)—Sterling Audio has introduced its new SL230MP medium-diaphragm condenser microphones, offered as a matched pair intended for use in making stereo instrumental recordings.
Each SL230 mic has a gold-sputtered condenser capsule with a six-micron membrane, aiming to provide high sensitivity when capturing source material. The mics' cardioid pickup pattern provides rejection of off-axis sounds, and a Class-A FET (field effect transistor) circuit design is used to provide consistent performance. As with most condenser mics, Sterling Audio SL230s operate on standard 48 volt phantom power.
Each mic includes a switchable highpass filter that rolls off at 75 Hz, and a selectable -15 dB pad for use in high-volume applications, allowing it to take on sound pressure levels up to 150 dB in a live setting.
Sterling Audio reports that its matching process ensures the two mics exhibit frequency response and output characteristics within a single dB of one another for consistent level matching in stereo applications. The two SL230s come with a protective case, two SM9 shock mounts, and two windscreens.
The SL230MP cardioid condenser microphone pair is available, running $149.99.
