Sontronics STC-2 cardioid condenser microphone

SONTRONICS STC-2 large-diaphragm condenser mic
Our best-selling Sontronics STC-2 formed part of our initial line-up when we launched Sontronics back in 2005, and remains a firm favourite with musicians, producers and studios everywhere.

The Sontronics STC-2 is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a gold-sputtered 1-inch capsule and a fixed cardioid pattern, and it is ideally suited for recording sung and spoken vocals, acoustic instruments and much more.

"STC-2 is a refined performer… the high frequencies
sound smooth and unhyped, the low end is similarly balanced and the mids sound clear and natural"

HUW PRICE, Reviewer (Music Tech Magazine)

STC-2's evenly balanced frequency response delivers a defined low-end and a very detailed, open top-end, accurately capturing your subject in all its colours. Like all our condenser mics, STC-2 has a characteristic smooth roll-off in the high frequencies ensuring an extremely natural presence.

The STC-2 will give you digital-friendly results that sit perfectly in the mix every time, without causing any dithering or other anomalies that you might find in other mics in the same price range. Its versatility and reliability also make Sontronics STC-2 a very popular microphone for education.

"STC-2 is unbelievable! It's solid and professional,
and for recording voice and other instruments it's the
obvious choice. Quality-wise it's comparable to (if not better than) mics that cost two or three times the price!

STEVIE CRIPPS, Voiceover Artist/Producer

To give it plenty of flexibility and to aid its suitability for recording a wide range of sources in a variety of room sizes, the STC-2 boasts a low-cut filter switch and an attenuation or pad switch (-10dB cut).

These controls, coupled with the hand-seated capsule and the carefully crafted electronics will help you get the best from every recording, making this microphone a truly flexible all-round tool for your studio.

"We use our two STC-2s along with an APOLLO
and an STC-1S pair… these mics have completely revolutionised the way we work. We can record in
one take and the final mix is immediately usable…
no EQ, no plug-ins, just perfect!"

MICHAEL J LANGLEY, Producer/Engineer

Sontronics STC-2 is available in brushed nickel or sleek black finish and is supplied in a foam-lined aluminium flightcase. The mic comes complete with its spider-style shockmount, which helps to isolate the sensitive microphone from any transient noise travelling through the mic stand.

If you're after more flexibility, then try our three-pattern STC-3X Pack. Based on exactly the same architecture as the STC-2, the STC-3X microphone has three patterns (omni, cardioid, figure-of-eight) and it comes with everything you need to get started out of the box: shockmount, popshield, 5-metre XLR cable and mic pouch. If you don't require the three patterns but you need the accessories, then the STC-20 Pack is a great choice too.

As with all our mics, STC-2 is protected by our LIFETIME WARRANTY.
If you'd like to see or hear the Sontronics STC-2 in action, contact your nearest distributor or stockist, or get in touch with us directly, so we can help you change the way you hear things!
