Sontronics to release affordable condenser mic
The STC-6 is a new handheld condenser mic from Sontronics. Building on the success of the STC-5, this sports a redesigned body and offers additional features.
The mic’s body is said to be robust and ergonomic and has grooves that aid grip. Recessed switches control the 0dB/-10dB pad and linear/75Hz high-pass filter.
Sitting inside the STC-6 you’ll find a cardioid capsule mounted on a shockmount cradle. This houses a multi-point electrode post that we’re told increases the signal integrity and reduces the potential for corrosion.
Shipping in an aluminium flightcase, the STC-6 will be available late in March 2008 priced at $199/€159/£95. You can find out more on the Sontronics website.
