Sterling Audio Cardioid Condenser Microphones
If you're outfitting a recording studio and trying to figure out what kind of microphone you should get, a condenser mic as opposed to a dynamic mic is usually the way to go. Thanks to their response characteristics, sensitivity and versatility, condensers are the type most often used in home studios and professional environments. Whether you choose a small or large diaphragm condenser mic will come down to what you're going to be recording: instruments, concerts or vocals. As you browse through the Sterling Audio cardioid condenser microphones here, you'll find lots of options to suit every budget and sound system.
For the amateur studio setup, there's the Sterling Audio ST51 Large Diaphragm FET Condenser Microphone. It offers outstanding sound and built quality at an affordable price, which is great if you dabble in recording or you're just tired of forking out money to rent mics. This top seller gives the clarity and crispness you want for vocals and instruments: the 6-micron, gold-evaporated Mylar diaphragm captures definition and the Class-A circuitry provides smoothness and warmth. There's also the ST55, which has an ultra-thin 3-micron diaphragm, and like the ST51, a disc resonator that extends high frequencies naturally for that crystal-clear sound that's a must for rappers or acapella groups.
For even more versatility, you can record just about anything with the Sterling Audio ST6050 FET Studio Condenser Mic Ocean Way Edition. This model is inspired by the famous collection of mics from the legendary Ocean Way Studios where Nat King Cole, Quincy Jones, Eric Clapton and other icons have recorded multiple award-winning records. Its design bridges the gap between classic tube electronics and the first FET mics so that the artist, producer or audio engineer can perfectly capture sound the way it was meant to be heard. Super for vocals, backups, piano, overhead drums and percussion, the ST6050 delivers stunning clarity with a rich, warm open sound and silky top end.
A great microphone is key when it comes to conveying smooth, natural audio whether you're laying down tracks in the studio or recording live concerts. Perfect for many different applications, these Sterling Audio cardioid condenser microphones offer a sophisticated combination of traditional and modern mic technologies to make it easy for you to record, track and mix your music just the way you want on all of your creative projects.
