Description

 

The new Sontronics MERCURY is a premium quality valve/tube condenser microphone designed to sound stunning on whatever you’re recording, from solo instruments, percussion and vocals to ensemble and orchestral work, overhead and room miking, voiceover and more.

Designed by Sontronics’ founder and designer Trevor Coley, and developed alongside UK artists and producers as well as the engineers at Abbey Road Studios, the MERCURY is hand-built in the UK Sontronics HQ.

Taking things up a step even further than the multi-award-winning ARIA, the Sontronics MERCURY employs the highest grade components (most of which have less than 1% tolerance, unheard of for a microphone at this price) and a hand-selected and tested European-made ECC81/12AT7 vacuum tube, all of which result in absolutely impeccable results, whatever application you’re using it for.

 

THE MAIN FEATURES OF THE SONTRONICS MERCURY INCLUDE:

RECOMMENDED FOR…

• male & female vocals
• voiceover
• piano & strings
• acoustic guitar & guitar amp
• brass, woodwind & ethnic instruments
• drums & percussion
• ensemble, choral & orchestral
