The Roswell Delphos II Microphone provides the natural sound that we have come to love and expect from Roswell mics, but with a slightly richer, fuller sound. This makes the Delphos perfect for applications where you want a workhorse mic that provides a bit of a lively vibe.

The Roswell Delphos Microphone is a premium all-purpose studio condenser, featuring unhyped and natural frequency response, very high sensitivity, and very low self-noise.The Roswell Delphos uses a highly optimized transformerless circuit, which provides a pristine signal path. The microphone's circuit boards are manufactured and populated in the US, using the finest components sourced from around the world, including low-noise NOS transistors and imported European capacitors.The two switches located on the front of the microphone provide pattern control (Cardioid/Omni) and pad (-10dB).

Each Delphos is assembled in California, manually "burned in," and extensively tested after manufacturing to ensure the best possible performance. The microphone is painted in California with a 3-stage enamel finish. The color is dark blue metallic. The ROSWELL logo nameplate is embossed brass. Roswell has created a new shockmount for the Delphos. Its cut-away face allows the microphone to be easily positioned close to a singer or instrument without hardware standing in the way. This allows you to take advantage of the microphone's natural proximity effect.

What We Think

The Roswell Delphos is another solid mic from Roswell. But, what makes this mic different from the Mini K47 or Aurora - is the vibe. The Delphos is a bit more sensitive than the Aurora, giving you a little more energy/life to the sound. The Delphos also has a fuller low mid, more electricity in the upper mids, and an overall slight bit more presence in the mid range. This gives the Delphos sort of a vintage vibe, allowing for a warmer body to the sound source, and a "70's character" to the clarity of the mic. Things of course relax and open up in omni, but that vibe is still there. To me, the Delphos is a winner for acoustic instruments in a more bluesy/folky/classic rock fashion, and is impressive for vocals.
