SONTRONICS STC-20 PACK
cardioid condenser microphone plus accessories
Our Sontronics STC-20 PACK is an all-in-one microphone package that allows you to achieve the same quality recordings as you'd expect to hear in a professional studio, even for those musicians on the tightest of budgets.
With a fixed cardioid pattern, the large-diaphragm STC-20 microphone will give impressive results on a wide range of sources, including male and female vocals, acoustic guitar and other plucked instruments, guitar amp, percussion, drumkit, piano and other acoustic instruments.
We've also had feedback from many people who are using it with great success for spoken word, so this is also an ideal microphone for voiceover, podcast and broadcast work.
"STC-20 really flatters vocals and offers clear, sparkling top end. It's also great on acoustic guitar… sounds massive but with that high-end shimmer that makes any guitar sound much more expensive than it is!"
SIMON CROFT, Singer/songwriter
The STC-20 microphone features a large open grille that houses the same one-inch gold-sputtered capsule as found in our hugely popular STC-2. It is supplied with a collection of indispensable accessories, meaning you can get plugged in and recording within minutes.
In the package, you'll find the STC-20 microphone along with…
• a spider-style shockmount (with 2 spare elastics)
• nylon-mesh popshield that attaches to shockmount
• 5-metre XLR cable
• zip-up, vinyl microphone pouch
"It sounded fantastic on spoken word, male and female sung vocals, acoustic guitar and as a distant mic on an electric guitar. Everything I used it for, it simply worked straight away – it's probably one of the unfussiest mics I've ever used. In summary: loved it, want one!"
ANDI PICKER, Reviewer (iGuitar magazine)
Despite its incredible affordability, the Sontronics STC-20 delivers brilliant results on whatever you use it for, whether you're just starting out with a small bedroom set-up or looking for a reliable workhorse to use around the studio on a variety of sources.
The STC-20 Pack is also a best-selling microphone into education, where its ease-of-use and characteristic clean, realistic sound ensure that your recording will sit neatly in the mix every time.
"This is a superb value package – with a well balanced, transparent sounding condenser mic, plus a heap
of must-have accessories so you can get recording immediately. For recording or broadcasting,
it offers superbly balanced vocals"
PAUL MORRISSEY, Singer/songwriter & Reviewer (iDJ Magazine)
Designed to be an affordable entry point into the Sontronics range, the STC-20 microphone gives you the same characteristic smooth rolloff in the high frequencies as found in all our condenser mics, and when compared to other mics in the same price range, you truly won't believe your ears.
If you feel you need some more flexibility in terms of pad and filter controls, check out our STC-2 microphone (on which the STC-20 is based), which has pad and filter controls, plus shockmount and flightcase. For even more versatility, our STC-3X Pack comes with the same accessories as the STC-20 Pack and offers three polar patterns: cardioid, omni and figure-of-eight.
Like all microphones, the STC-20 is protected by our Sontronics
