DESCRIPTION

Sontronics Mercury is a variable-pattern valve condenser microphone that guarantees you spectacular results, whatever you’re recording.

Hand-built in the UK, Mercury utilises premium-grade electronic components with the exceptionally low tolerances, rarely used in microphone manufacturing. This results in an impeccably clean signal and superbly accurate reproduction of vocals and instruments.

Mercury’s power supply features both pad and filter switches, and a fully sweepable polar pattern control that provides an infinite choice of pickups, from omni to figure-of-eight and every nuance in between.

All this plus its exceptionally low self-noise make Mercury a must-have for anyone serious about achieving the very best quality results.
