Sontronics Sigma

Sontronics SIGMA er inspirert av de klassiske vokalisten fra “the Swing era” med de uforglemmelige stemmene til Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong og Ella Fitzgerald. SIGMA’s “spesialitet” er å gjenskape den silkemyke, rike tonen som kjennertegner disse gamle opptakene. SIGMA bruker phantom power og utgangen er aktivt balansert, i motsetning til mange andre ribbon mikrofoner, som gjør at den er like enkel og bruke og sette opp som vanlige kondensatormikrofoner – bare plugg den inn i preampen din og gå i “record”!

Detaljer

Den verdenskjente cellisten, Julian Lloyd Webber er vel så kjent for sin vidunderlige "Barjansky" Stradivarius cello, som for sin eminente og virtuose spillestil, og har nå funnet den perfekte mikrofonen til å fange de lekre nyansene i sitt instrument - en Sontronics Sigma!

“Recently I was recording at Abbey Road Studios,” begins Julian, “and asked to use a vintage STC ribbon mic. The engineer there mentioned that he had ‘another’ ribbon mic [a Sontronics SIGMA]. We did a blind test side by side and I went for the SIGMA!”

The SIGMA is phantom powered and its output is actively balanced which means, unlike most transformer-based ribbon microphones, it does not suffer from impedance mismatching problems and low output sensitivity. In fact, it is as easy to use as any other Sontronics condenser microphone – just plug it into your preamp and play. The circuit design delivers some of the lowest self-noise figures of any ribbon microphone on the market and the aluminium ribbon element itself is less than 2 microns thick, all of which goes to make a very accurate and responsive microphone.

Apart from its good looks, the unique shockmount system is extremely effective and allows the microphone to be placed close to the source with complete isolation from noise transmitted through the mic stand. The applications for SIGMA are truly varied, but Broadcast, Vocal, Acoustic and Orchestral Instruments and Drums and Percussion are a few options you should consider.
