Sontronics DELTA 2 phantom-powered ribbon mic for guitar amps + brass


The Sontronics DELTA 2 is a ribbon microphone designed specifically for higher SPL sources. Just like the original, DELTA 2 isn’t just the perfect partner for guitar amplifiers, but it is also ideal for use with other high SPL sources such as trumpets, trombones and tenor saxophones. DELTA 2's reduced sensitivity enables it to capture incredibly powerful signals without overloading its internal preamp circuit. Coupled with its rugged build and multi-layer baffling, it is more than ready for life on the road as well as in the studio.

 

The Sontronics DELTA 2 sounds even more stunning than the original, it captures astonishing clarity and detail across the whole frequency spectrum. This results in the DELTA 2 enabling you to capture the true tone of whatever instrument you’re recording and will allow it to sit perfectly in a mix without the need for post EQ or gain.

 

Hand-built in the Sontronics HQ and featuring Sontronics’ own unique circuity, the DELTA 2 boasts UK-made electronics including a custom-wound premium transformer and the same excellent ribbon motor as the original DELTA. The DELTA 2’s electronics uniquely incorporate RFI (radio frequency interference) filters that filter out unwanted radio frequencies, making the DELTA 2 (and Sontronics other ribbon mics) even more suited to live use than before. Sontronics are the only ribbon mics in the world to boast this feature.

 

The DELTA 2 is supplied with Sontronics unique-designed shock mount in a rugged ABS flight case which protects from all the rigours of touring and live use, but also keeps the mic safe and sound between studio sessions. And like all Sontronics microphones, it is protected by a free lifetime warranty.
