"The STC-1S give a more effective, uncoloured result than anything else I've ever used… they're just so natural sound."
Alan Bailey, Sound Engineer (Snow Patrol, The The)
Open up a world of potential with the STC-1S matched 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.
The STC-1S will capture a beautifully accurate stereo picture of any solo instrument or ensemble.
"Superbly well made and they sound fantastic. Whatever you're recording, they somehow make it sound much richer and more real."
Simon Croft, Producer/Engineer
