New Sontronics Handheld Condenser Mic

United States
14th February 2008 — Following the overwhelming success of the Sontronics STC-5, comes the release of the new STC-6 handheld condenser microphone.

“Since introducing STC-5 three years ago,” says Trevor Coley, founder of the Sontronics brand, “it has become an extremely popular product for us, thanks to its incredible performance and outstanding value for money. The STC-6 builds on that great success, with a redesigned body and additional features. This mic punches way above its weight, delivering unbelievable sound quality for the price, yet it still comes in at under £100!”

The mic body has been designed to be completely robust and ergonomic too, thanks to its grooves which aid grip. It also features recessed switches to control the 0dB/-10dB pad and the linear/75Hz high-pass filter. Inside, the microphone features a cardioid capsule mounted in a newly designed shockmount cradle that houses a special multi-point electrode post. This ensures multiple points of contact with the capsule, significantly increasing signal integrity and reliability, and reducing potential for corrosion.

The STC-6 comes with a mic clip in a stylish, aluminium, foam-padded flightcase and will be on the market from late March 2008 at the RRP of £95 (ex. VAT), €159 (ex. tax), $199 (ex. tax).
