Game-changing guitar recording
The Pure circuit delivers completely transparent and ultra-accurate sound, with 117 dB (A) dynamic range. JFET adds subtle harmonic enhancement for a rounder, warmer sound without sacrificing dynamic range.
Active bypasses unneeded stages for completely transparent sound when used with active pickups. While patent-pending Z-Tone variable impedance Hi-Z input re-shapes the sound of instruments to dramatically reshape the tone of your guitar, or precisely match the impedance of a virtual gear model.
Front-panel Amp output for easy re-amping, with no need for a direct box and no ground loops or noise. The front-panel 1/4” return lets you add external pedal FX without the need to re-wire rear inputs.
You’ve also got a built-in tuner to keep your instrument in tune throughout recording sessions – handy eh? Finally, 2 inputs for expression pedals or single/switches gives you real-time control over virtual rigs.
About the Sontronics STC-3X Black Multi Pattern Microphone Pack
The Sontronics STC-3X PACK is an all-in-one mic and accessories package and the ideal solution for achieving professional-quality recordings at home or in the studio.
Sontronics’ British-designed STC-3X multi-pattern condenser microphone features the three most commonly used polar patterns – cardioid, omnidirectional and figure of-eight – selectable using a switch on the rear of the mic. It boasts a dual one-inch, gold-sputtered diaphragm housed in a large, open grille and its filter and pad controls make it a versatile, flexible workhorse in any recording situation.
The STC-3X gives stunning results on everything from male and female vocals to acoustic guitar, piano, percussion and other acoustic instruments. It also works extremely well on spoken word, making it a great option for voiceover, broadcast and podcast.
In omni mode, STC-3X is fantastic for room and overhead miking, and also for ensemble recording (vocals, choral, instrumental, orchestral). In figure-of-eight mode, it is perfect for stringed instruments and for stereo miking applications.

- A spider-style shockmount (with spare elastics)
