Blumlein X/Y fantommatad stereobandmikrofon idealisk för orkester, kör, akustiska instrument, trummor, slagverk eller som rumsmick. Levereras i aluminium flightcase.
After we launched our SIGMA ribbon mic, we noticed that many musicians were using them in stereo pair configuration. As a result, we created the Sontronics APOLLO, a Blumlein X/Y stereo ribbon microphone with all the silky smooth characteristics of the SIGMA? times two!
The open basket design, inspired by the silhouette of a skyscraper, allows the APOLLO to soak up every nuance of your recording, capturing the whole ambience and resulting in a truly complete sound. If you wish, you can choose to use just one channel of APOLLO in mono recordings, making it a truly versatile microphone.
APOLLO uses the same shockmount design that is unique to all our ribbon microphones, providing isolation from noise transmitted through the mic stand. The microphone and shockmount are supplied in a sturdy aluminium flightcase.
We’re proud to be able to say that the engineers at Abbey Road Studios have fallen in love with our APOLLO mic, and they make use of it as an overhead mic on orchestral and choral recordings, and on their Steinway concert grand in Studio 1 on a regular basis. So don’t just take our word for it!
