Best-selling condenser microphone that combines beautiful sound quality with superb ease of use
A founder member of our line-up since we launched Sontronics back in 2005, the STC-2 is a worldwide best-seller and has become a must-have mic in studios around the world thanks to its incredible accuracy, smooth performance and superb clarity.
This large-diaphragm condenser mic has a fixed cardioid pattern and is ideally suited to vocals and acoustic instruments, from acoustic guitar and piano to brass, woodwind and strings, but can also be used in pairs for all kinds of stereo applications.
STC-2’s evenly balanced frequency response results in rich, defined lows and a detailed, open top end, accurately reproducing your source in all its glory.
Like all our condenser mics, STC-2 features our signature smooth high-frequency roll-off, ensuring a natural top end and a recording that sits perfectly in the mix.

"STC-2 is unbelievable! It's solid and professional and quality-wise it's comparable to (if not better than) mics that cost three or four times the price."
Stevie Cripps, Voiceover Artist (Radio 1, Sony, Red Bull, Paramount)
STC-2 has impressed users and reviewers alike over the years since it was first launched.
Classy and refined, STC-2 is equally suited to pro studios, education or home set-ups
Even though STC-2 is one of our most affordable and accessible microphones, it is crafted with great care and attention to detail, both in its internal electronics and its external build.
Adding to its versatility, the STC-2 features a two-stage filter switch, giving you complete control over the low end, and a two-stage pad switch, allowing it to cope with powerful sources such as brass, drums and guitar amps.
Available in brushed silver or sleek satin black, STC-2 is supplied with its spider-style shockmount in an aluminium flightcase, for protection between sessions or out on the road.
