Sontronics Apollo Ribbon Microphone

The Sontronics APOLLO is a Blumlein X/Y stereo ribbon microphone with all the silky smooth characteristics of the SIGMA? times two!

Sontronics Apollo Ribbon Microphone Details

The Sontronics APOLLO is based on the SIGMA. The Sontronics APOLLO is a Blumlein X/Y stereo ribbon microphone with all the silky smooth characteristics of the SIGMA? times two! The open basket design, inspired by the silhouette of a skyscraper, allows the APOLLO to soak up every nuance of your recording, capturing the whole ambience and resulting in a truly complete sound. If you wish, you can choose to use just one channel of APOLLO in mono recordings, making it a truly versatile microphone. APOLLO uses the same shockmount design that is unique to all our ribbon microphones, providing isolation from noise transmitted through the mic stand.

We're proud to be able to say that the engineers at Abbey Road Studios have fallen in love with our APOLLO mic, and they make use of it as an overhead mic on orchestral and choral recordings, and on their Steinway concert grand in Studio 1 on a regular basis. So don't just take our word for it!

The Sontronics APOLLO: "a microphone that hears the way you do!"

Smooth Stereo Picture June 16, 2016
Reviewer: Stephen Lawson - theMicSite.com from Minneapolis, MN United States  
This mic just arrived. The build is SOLID the packaging case, stereo cable whip and shock mount are all top notch. The sound is VERY smooth - we used this as a room mic in front of the kit but due to the fig 8 pattern its sonic image was of the whole room. Very usable! The overheads of the drums were easy to dial in and no "bish" which we often have a hard time taming.
