Fancy using the Sigma in a stereo pair? Put the Sontronics Apollo in your mic locker!

After Sontronics launched their Sigma ribbon mic, they noticed that many musicians were using them in stereo pair configuration. As a result, they created the Sontronics Apollo: 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 the Apollo in mono recordings, making it a truly versatile microphone.

The Sontronics Apollo uses the same shockmount design that is unique to all their ribbon microphones, providing isolation from noise transmitted through the mic stand. The microphone and shockmount are supplied in a sturdy aluminium flightcase.

Engineers at Abbey Road Studios have fallen in love with the Sontronics 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 there you go; praise doesn't get much higher than that!
