British microphone brand Sontronics has teamed up with a handful of specialist Sontronics dealers in the UK to offer a summer promotion with the chance to get two condenser mics for the price of one.
Anyone buying a Sontronics STC-3X PACK, comprising the best-selling three-pattern, large-diaphragm STC-3X mic plus accessories, from a participating store will automatically receive a free Sontronics STC-10 pencil condenser mic, worth £95 (UK RRP) totally free.
Sontronics ays that this means that for just £239 you'll get a fully rounded recording package, ideal for singer/songwriters, home set-ups, professional studios or voiceover artists, that includes the following:
• Sontronics STC-3X three-pattern (omni, cardioid, figure-of-eight), large-diaphragm condenser mic with three-stage filter and three-stage pad controls, available in silver or black. It's ideal for recording vocals, spoken word, acoustic guitar, piano, drums, podcasting, overhead and more.
• FREE recording accessories as part of the STC-3X PACK: spider-style shockmount, double-layer nylon-mesh popshield, 5-metre XLR cable and handy zip-up mic pouch
• FREE Sontronics STC-10 pencil-style cardioid condenser mic with two-stage filer and two-stage pad controls, mic mount and foam windshield, perfect for direct-miking acoustic guitar, solo woodwind or strings, drums, percussion, video and film work
• FREE downloads of Toontrack's award-winning EZMix 2 Lite and Ezdrummer Lite software
• FREE Lifetime Warranty for both STC-3X and STC-10 mics
Sontronics founder and mic designer, Trevor Coley, told us "Both the STC-3X PACK and the STC-10 are brilliantly versatile mics, and our users constantly tell us how they give results that compare with those of mics that cost many times more, and now you can get both for the price of the STC-3X PACK. Our Sontronics brand wouldn't be here without the people who buy, use and love our mics, so this is our chance to give something back to all of you... for free!"
