SONTRONICS STC-2X cardioid/omni condenser microphone

SONTRONICS STC-2X two-pattern condenser microphone
No longer in production but still available on the second-hand market, our Sontronics STC-2X is a dual-pattern condenser microphone with cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns.

Based on our best-selling STC-2 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser, the
STC-2X was developed to include an omnidirectional pattern as well as the cardioid, plus three-level pad and high-pass filter controls, to make it even more flexible and versatile.

"A fantastic mic for vocals… STC-2X is also ideal for solo instruments or acoustic ensemble or a full band. Very much a brilliant all-rounder, especially at the price!"
FUTURE MUSIC magazine review

The Sontronics STC-2X was available in black or silver and was supplied in an aluminium flightcase with its spider-style shockmount plus spare elastics.

The two polar patterns are selectable using a switch on the rear of the microphone, while the three-stage attenuation pad (0, -10dB, -20dB) and three-stage high-pass filter (linear, 75Hz, 150Hz) switches are on the front of the mic.

The Sontronics STC-2X has since been superceded by our STC-3X, a microphone with three polar patterns - cardioid, omni and figure-of-eight – plus the same three-stage pad and filter. Also available in silver or black, it is supplied, as the STC-3X Pack, with a spider-style shockmount, dual-layer nylon-mesh popshield, a five-metre XLR cable and a zip-up pouch.

The STC-2X is still available on the second-hand market, so if you have any questions about a mic you're looking to purchase (or one you already have) don't hesitate to contact us.
