Sterling Audio Releases New Recording Microphones

Sterling Audio has announced a new line of high-value professional microphones for studio recording. The line includes six individual microphones, a two-microphone package, and two new shock mounts.

Ribbon microphones hold a special place in the hearts of recording engineers for their ability to capture high-frequency detail. Sterling Audio's new ST170 Active Ribbon Microphone is all of that and more. Sporting a figure-of-eight pick-up pattern and bringing a rich presence and warm bottom-end, the ST170 enables mixes to come together quickly without requiring extensive EQ. It's a great choice for modern mixes of electric and acoustic guitars, drums, vocals, and overhead/room tracks. The active phantom-powered design delivers the optimal output level to hit the tonal sweet spot of mic preamps, and the ST170 easily handles up to 132 dB SPL for loud sources like guitar amps and drums. The ST170 comes with Sterling Audio's SM5 metal shock mount and sturdy aluminium carry case.

Nothing quite matches the smooth warmth of a fine tube condenser microphone, and Sterling Audio's new ST169 multi-pattern tube condenser microphone delivers the proof every time it is used. Ideal for vocals, instruments, speech, and overhead/room recording, its combination of new and traditional technology results in a full frequency response and quick transient response, without sacrificing authentic tube warmth and tone. Selectable cardioid, omni and figure-of-eight polar patterns and a switchable highpass filter and attenuation pad, along with the ability to handle up to 142 dB SPL, make this one-inch diaphragm, Class A tube condenser unbeatable for sheer versatility. The new mic comes with Sterling Audio's SM8 premium metal, band-suspension shock mount, aluminium carry case, and low-noise power supply.

Sterling Audio's ST155 large diaphragm condenser microphone features a one-inch large diaphragm and delivers warm, richly detailed, smooth, and articulate sound, perfect for recording vocals, instruments, and speech. Its hand-assembled capsule and custom-wound transformer make it a standout in its class. The ST155 provides additional versatility, thanks to its switchable highpass filter and attenuation pad, and can handle up to 144dB SPL from 20Hz to 20kHz. It comes with Sterling Audio's SM8 premium metal, band-suspension shock mount and a custom-padded carry case.

To capture instruments with outstanding clarity and subtle detail, choose the new Sterling Audio ST131 studio instrument condenser microphone, which features a hypercardioid polar pattern. Sterling Audio's ST151 large diaphragm condenser microphone sports a custom-wound transformer and hand-assembled, one- inch capsule, and offers a cardioid polar pattern, making it a fine choice for a variety of recording applications. The Sterling ST159 multi-pattern condenser microphone's selectable cardioid, omni and figure-of-eight polar patterns and other features will make it the most versatile mic in any collection.

Sterling also is shipping the SP150/130 studio condenser microphone pack, which provides two professional Class A FET cardioid microphones that enables handling of the widest possible range of recording situations. The side-address SP150 delivers articulate and detailed vocal, instrument and speech recording, while the end-address SP130 instrument mic captures fast transients with outstanding clarity.

Finally, Sterling has released two new shock mounts, the SM5, which can accommodate a variety of medium-body (1.2 to 1.7-inch) studio microphones and the SM8, which fits any Sterling large diaphragm microphones (1.6 to 2.4-inch body diameter).
