NEW! SONTRONICS ARIA: cardioid codnenser mic for vocals

New for 2014 is our Sontronics ARIA valve/tube cardioid condenser microphone that has been developed and designed by Sontronics founder and designer Trevor Coley specifically for getting the best from your vocals.

The Sontronics ARIA will give you stunning, beautiful results on every recording, thanks to its silky-smooth characteristics, its accurate response and our trademark Sontronics high-frequency roll-off.

Housed inside the chromed grille is a large, 1.07-inch, edge-terminated capsule that captures all the detail and subtleties of any male or female vocal (sung or spoken) while the hand-selected European 12AX7/ECC83 tube lends a character that you'd expect to find in a classic vintage valve mic.

"Sontronics ARIA is incredibly smooth with bags of character and it easily competes with any vintage valve microphone!" Paul Epworth, Producer/Writer (Adele, Plan B, Florence + The Machine, Paul McCartney)

For that extra level of control, the accompanying SPS-2 power supply unit boasts pad (0, -10dB) and filter (linear, 75Hz) switches as well as a tube-ready LED, letting you know when the mic is warmed up and at its best to record. Inside the unit is a pro-quality, medical-grade electricity filter to ensure that the power supply is pure and interference-free.

During the 12 months of ARIA's development, it has been beta-tested by top artists and musicians including producer/writer Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence & The Machine, Paul McCartney), singer/songwriter PJ Harvey, and also several engineers at Abbey Road Studios, all of whom now admit they can't live without their ARIAs! These and other users have all told us that ARIA's sound and quality is easily matched to mics (both modern and vintage) that cost ten times more.

The result is a go-to microphone that's a must-have if you're serious about achieving the best results from vocals but that will also give beautiful results on piano, acoustic guitar, cello and other instruments as well as voiceover and broadcast.

Sontronics ARIA really will take your breath away!

The ARIA microphone is supplied in its own velvet-lined wooden box, which comes in an aluminium flightcase together with its elastic spider-style shockmount, a ring mount and the SPS-2 power supply, connecting cable and power lead. Like all our mics, Sontronics ARIA is covered by our no-nonsense

"Sontronics ARIA is silky smooth with all the classic characteristics I'd expect from a vintage valve mic. Yet another well designed and beautiful sounding mic from Sontronics!" Andrew Dudman, Recording Engineer, Abbey Road (Lord Of The Rings, The Golden Compass, Robbie Williams, Elbow)
