The STC-80 is Sontronics’ first dynamic microphone and is a natural addition to the superb handheld condenser mics: the STC-5 and the recently released STC-6. The STC-80 boasts the same rugged construction as the handheld condensers and offers a high-quality dynamic capsule.
“Since I first launched Sontronics in 2005,” says brand founder Trevor Coley, “we’ve had many requests to include a dynamic handheld microphone in our range, and having launched two successful handheld condenser mics (the STC-5 and the new STC-6), we’ve turned our attention to a dynamic mic at last! We are now proud to release the STC-80, a dynamic handheld mic, which boasts superb sound quality and low handling noise with a totally solid feel.”
The STC-80 has a frequency response from 50Hz to 15kHz , helping to deliver first-class results on stage and in the studio. It gives great results on vocals and speech but is equally suited to recording guitar cabinets. It is supplied with a mic clip in a sturdy aluminium flightcase for ultimate protection while on the road.
The STC-80 is available from July 2008 and will retail for an RRP of GBP £69 (inc. VAT), EUR €89 (ex. tax) and USD $120 (ex. tax).
