"The STC-1S give a more effective, uncoloured result than anything else I've ever used… they're just so natural sound."

PERFECT PAIR

Laboratory-tested as a stereo pair, the superbly versatile STC-1S mics feature a three-stage pad switch, giving you total control over how they respond to sound pressure levels from any source, and a three-stage filter switch, allowing you to reduce the low-frequency response.

 

The STC-1S, like all Sontronics mics, feature a super-smooth roll-off in the high frequencies, ensuring a clear, clean signal that sits perfectly in the mix.

 

For even more flexibility, the STC-1S mics are compatible with our optional Omni and Hyper capsules, opening up an array of recording possibilities whether you’re using the STC-1S as a stereo pair or individual solo mics.

"A beautiful set of mics that have clean, warm mids and lows and a lovely smooth rolloff in the top end, resulting in a signal that has no distortion and requires no EQ or post-processing. A solid stereo image and a beautiful frequency spread. Brilliant!"

Pip Williams, Producer (Status Quo, Moody Blues)
