    Product Description

    Sontronics’ best-selling Sontronics STC-2 employs a one-inch, gold-sputtered capsule and is ideally suited to recording vocals, spoken word and acoustic instruments. The evenly balanced frequency response delivers a defined low-end and a very detailed, open top-end, accurately capturing your subject in all its colours.

    The STC-2 has a very smooth high-frequency roll-off, ensuring a natural presence, while its low-cut filter and -10dB pad switches will help you get the best from your recording, making this microphone a truly flexible all-round tool for your studio.

    A 'spider' suspension mount is provided, which helps to isolate the sensitive microphone from any transient noise travelling through the mic stand.

    The Sontronics STC-2 and its shockmount are supplied in smart aluminium flightcase. Choose from brushed silver or sleek black with gold lettering. As with all Sontronics mics, the STC-2 comes with a Lifetime Warranty! All you have to do is Register your mic when you buy and your mic will be protected for life!


    “STC-2 has a warmth to it that mics in a similar price range cannot deliver, but it’s the sensitivity and versatility in coping with so many different instruments and vocalists that impresses me most.”
    Miles Hunt, Singer/Songwriter (The Wonder Stuff, Dirty Ray)
    “STC-2 and Orpheus are unbelievable! They’re solid and professional, and for recording voice they’re an excellent choice, comparable to microphones three times the price!”
    Stevie Cripps, Voiceover Artist (Sky, BBC, Radio 1, Kiss)
    “High frequencies sound smooth and unhyped, the low end is similarly balanced and the mid range sounds clear and natural. STC-2 is a refined performer.”
    Huw Price, Music Tech Magazine#

    Here's what Sontronics say about their STC-2 Mic

    Our best-selling Sontronics STC-2 formed part of our initial line-up when we launched Sontronics back in 2005, and remains a firm favourite with musicians, producers and studios everywhere.

    The Sontronics STC-2 is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a gold-sputtered 1-inch capsule and a fixed cardioid pattern, and it is ideally suited for recording sung and spoken vocals, acoustic instruments and much more.

    STC-2's evenly balanced frequency response delivers a defined low-end and a very detailed, open top-end, accurately capturing your subject in all its colours. Like all our condenser mics, STC-2 has a characteristic smooth roll-off in the high frequencies ensuring an extremely natural presence.

    The STC-2 will give you digital-friendly results that sit perfectly in the mix every time, without causing any dithering or other anomalies that you might find in other mics in the same price range. Its versatility and reliability also make Sontronics STC-2 a very popular microphone for education.

    To give it plenty of flexibility and to aid its suitability for recording a wide range of sources in a variety of room sizes, the STC-2 boasts a low-cut filter switch and an attenuation or pad switch (-10dB cut).

    These controls, coupled with the hand-seated capsule and the carefully crafted electronics will help you get the best from every recording, making this microphone a truly flexible all-round tool for your studio.

    Sontronics STC-2 is available in brushed nickel or sleek black finish and is supplied in a foam-lined aluminium flightcase. The mic comes complete with its spider-style shockmount, which helps to isolate the sensitive microphone from any transient noise travelling through the mic stand.

    If you're after more flexibility, then try our three-pattern STC-3X Pack. Based on exactly the same architecture as the STC-2, the STC-3X microphone has three patterns (omni, cardioid, figure-of-eight) and it comes with everything you need to get started out of the box: shockmount, popshield, 5-metre XLR cable and mic pouch. If you don't require the three patterns but you need the accessories, then the STC-20 Pack is a great choice too.

    As with all our mics, STC-2 is protected by our LIFETIME WARRANTY.
    If you'd like to see or hear the Sontronics STC-2 in action, contact your nearest distributor or stockist, or get in touch with us directly, so we can help you change the way you hear things!
