Sontronics STC-3X Pack—Behind the Grille

The British-designed STC-3X microphone is a multi-pattern condenser featuring the three most commonly used polar patterns—cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-of-eight. These are selectable via a simple switch on the rear of the mic. In figure-eight mode, the STC-3X lets you pick up room ambience without setting up an additional mic—perfect for ensemble miking, stringed instruments, for face-to-face harmony vocals or rapping, cross-table interview, and also for X-Y or mid-side stereo miking applications.

The STC-3X boasts a dual one-inch, gold-sputtered diaphragm housed in a large, open grille. Its filter and pad controls make it a versatile, flexible workhorse in any recording situation. In fact, thanks to its three-stage pad and three-stage filter, as well as its three polar patterns and bundled accessories, the Sontronics STC-3X mic, is a best-seller for educational facilities (see below for a small list of schools and colleges using it). Like all Sontronics mics, the STC-3X microphone is protected a free lifetime warranty.

The Sontronics STC-3X is available in black or silver and comes with the following FREE accessories:

  • Spider-style shockmount (with two spare elastics)
  • Pro-quality, nylon-mesh pop filter (modeled on the best-selling ST-POP)
  • 15' (5m) female-to-male XLR cable
  • Vinyl, leather-look, microphone pouch
