The Sontronics STC-3X is a large diaphragm condenser microphone with a choice of three different polar patterns (cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-of-eight), making it an excellent all-round tool for a variety of recording applications. It sounds great when used to record vocals, acoustic instruments, piano, percussion... and pretty much anything else you can think of!
