Sontronics STC-5

Brand: Sontronics
In simple terms, the STC-5 is more sensitive than its dynamic counterparts and captures your voice in significantly more detail. The result is more akin to what you would expect to hear from a studio mic, with very low handling noise and a very high signal-to-noise output.

Handheld cardioid condenser microphone

The STC-5 is a handheld vocal microphone, simple, that’s obvious. Well, not quite…
Rather than the usual dynamic capsule found in most hand-held or stage microphones, the STC-5, like other Sontronics models, is a condenser microphone. It has a large, gold-sputtered cardioid capsule which delivers a crystal clear performance every time, whatever your style.
 
In simple terms, the STC-5 is more sensitive than its dynamic counterparts and captures your voice in significantly more detail. The result is more akin to what you would expect to hear from a studio mic, with very low handling noise and a very high signal-to-noise output.
 
The cardioid polar pattern helps to reject sounds entering the capsule from the sides, which is essential for producing a clear ‘image’ on stage, and will forever endear you to the guys working behind the mixing desk. You may have to adapt your mic technique slightly to use the STC-5, simply because you have to work less to get the same result the you’re used to getting from your regular dynamic mic – at the end of the day, this can’t be a bad thing.
 
Located in the ergonomically cast body is a low-cut filter switch that will help to reduce any stage rumble when the microphone is on a stand. So, if your band-mates are prone to jumping about the stage whilst you’re trying to deliver a meaningful vocal, this little switch could save the day - if not your sanity!
 
The STC-5 is supplied with a mic clip and a tough ABS plastic carrying case.
