For the two months between April 1st and May 31st 2011, customers buying a Sontronics STC-2X omni/cardioid condenser mic will receive an STC-10 pencil-style cardioid condenser mic worth £95 for free.
The STC-2X performs in a wide range of recording situations, particularly male and female vocals, voiceovers, but also works well with acoustic instruments. It is in the omni mode, however, where this mic stands out against other condenser mics, adding an extra dimension that means it is great as a room mic, ambient mic and for other situations such as full band recording, conference, interview, broadcast and podcasts.
Couple the STC-2X with an STC-10, which is designed for direct drum miking, overheads and film production work when used on a boom, and you get a practical and effective set of mics for a huge variety of recording needs.
The STC-2X is available in black or silver and comes with a spider-style shockmount and sturdy aluminium flightcase. Both products, as with all Sontronics mics, ship with a free copy of Toontrack EZdrummer Lite and are covered by Sontronics' lifetime warranty.
