APOLLO 2 IN USE

Ideal for stereo recording, as an overhead for orchestra, choir or instrumental ensemble, or to capture the full character of a solo instrument in stereo or mono, Apollo 2 will give you natural, expansive results with perfect clarity in the highs and a balanced depth and fullness to the mids and lows.

 

Thanks to its phantom-powered circuit and custom-wound transformers, Apollo 2 requires very little gain and no EQ, so achieving the best results is completely effortless. Our Apollo 2, Sigma 2 and Delta 2 are the first ribbon mics in the world to incorporate RFI filters in their circuitry, which means the signal remains crystal clear, even if used live.

 

Sontronics Apollo 2 really will take your breath away and impart a quality to your recordings that you didn’t imagine possible!
