MESSE09: New Ribbon Microphone

Here's what Sontronics have to say about their new mic...
Following on from the worldwide success of our iconic SIGMA ribbon microphone, the Sontronics DELTA has been born.
Where SIGMA has found its place in the heart of the studio and recording world, DELTA's incredible capability in miking guitar cabinets sets it up to become a new standard in live sound reinforcement.
Show it anything from subtle electro-acoustic finesse to shred-metal mayhem and DELTA will happily take whatever you throw at it, delivering a world-class reproduction every time.
DELTA's sonic footprint is everything that ribbon mic fans would expect, tailored to sit the mic comfortably in a live mix, whilst keeping its subject clear and present. DELTA's optimised sensitivity and 48V preamplified electronics deliver rock-soilid audio consistency combined with a signifcant improvement in signal-to-noise compared with traditional transformer-based ribbon mics.
DELTA is supplied with Sontronics' unique, super-effective shockmount and housed in a rugged aluminium flightcase.
This may just be the best mic ever for guitar cabinets!
