NEW! Sontronics DELTA 2 ribbon microphone for guitar amps and high-SPL sources

SONTRONICS DELTA 2 phantom-powered ribbon mic for guitar amps & brass
A decade after we launched the world’s first ribbon microphone designed specifically to handle higher SPL sources, its successor, the Sontronics
DELTA 2, has arrived.

The original DELTA, along with our HALO dynamic mic for guitar amps, has become a must-have for many studios and live guitarists, from Bernard Butler to Radiohead's Ed O'Brien, from Steve Stevens to Aerosmith, and when it comes to build quality and perfect sound reproduction, the new DELTA 2 turns the dial up to 11!

Like the original, DELTA 2 is not only the perfect partner for guitar amplifiers but also ideal for use with other high-SPL sources, such as trumpet, trombone and tenor sax. Compared to our SIGMA 2, DELTA 2's reduced sensitivity enables it to capture incredibly powerful signals without overloading its internal preamp circuit. Its rugged build and multi-layer baffling make it ready for life on the road as well as in the studio.

"DELTA is stunning… it's a fantastic-sounding mic.
It sounded great, right in front of the speaker with no EQ. If it sounds good coming out of the amp, DELTA will translate that perfectly, in 3D clarity. "

STEVE STEVENS, Guitarist/Songwriter (Billy Idol, Terry Bozzio, Michael Jackson)

DELTA 2 sounds even more stunning than the original, capturing amazing clarity and detail in the higher frequencies, together with astonishingly powerful mid and low tones.

The DELTA 2 does an incredible job of capturing every element of your guitar sound, whether you’re recording solo parts in the studio or miking up your amp on stage. DELTA 2 captures the true tone of whatever instrument you’re recording, allowing it to sit perfectly in the mix without requiring excessive gain or EQ.

Hand-built in the our Sontronics HQ and featuring our own unique circuitry, the DELTA 2 boasts UK-made electronics including a custom-wound premium-quality transformer (made in our hometown of Poole, England), and the same excellent ribbon motor as the original DELTA.

The electronics uniquely incorporate RFI (radio frequency interference) filters that filter out unwanted radio frequencies, making DELTA 2 (and our other ribbon mics) even more suited to live use than before. Ours are the only ribbon mics in the world to boast this feature!

"My DELTA is permanently in front of my Vox AC30.
My Les Paul just 'agrees' with the DELTA. It gives a natural and realistic view of the noisy sounds coming
from my amps. I never need to EQ it!"
BERNARD BUTLER, Artist/Writer/Producer

Our DELTA 2 is supplied with our unique-design shockmount in a rugged ABS flightcase which protects from all the rigours of touring and live use, but also keeps the mic safe and sound between studio sessions.

DELTA 2 is the best sounding ribbon microphone you can put in front of your guitar amp, trumpet, trombone or saxophone, and once you’ve heard it, you'll never look back!

Like all Sontronics microphones, DELTA 2 is protected by our LIFETIME WARRANTY, although the ribbon element itself is not, as it is subject to varying levels of wear and tear depending on how it is used. If your ribbon starts to stretch or become damaged in any way, we can arrange a replacement via your local Sontronics service centre or directly with us at Sontronics HQ in England. Contact us for more details.
