The STC-6 is a handheld condenser microphone from Sontronics that is designed primarily for live use on vocals.
The STC-6ʼs capsule is a 22 mm gold-sputtered capsule with a fixed cardioid pattern. It features recessed switches for a -10 dB pad and hi-pass filter at 75 Hz. The micʼs body has a series of grooves running across the middle, to aid in gripping while on stage.
The STC-6 has a transformerless output circuit, and with 24 dBA of self-noise is very well-suited for live applications but may be less acceptable for studio use.
The STC-6 ships in an aluminum carrying case as opposed to the more common pouch, and includes an appropriately sized clip.
