DELTA excels in miking electric guitar cabinets and is set to become a new standard in live sound reinforcement. Show it anything from subtle electro-acoustic finesse to shred-metal mayhem and DELTA will happily take whatever you throw at it, delivering a world-class reproduction every time.
DELTA's sonic footprint is everything that ribbon mic fans would expect, tailored to sit the mic comfortably in a live mix, while keeping its subject clear and present. DELTA's optimised sensitivity and 48V pre-amplified electronics deliver rock-solid audio consistency combined with a significant improvement in signal-to-noise compared with traditional transformer-based ribbon mics.
Before it reached production, DELTA was beta-tested by various studio producers and engineers, all of whom pushed the microphone to the max. Everyone who tried it loved it, as Justin Smith, engineer for Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal, testifies: The DELTA is amazing. It really handles anything you throw at it, from quiet, non-distorted guitar to balls-to-the-wall, amp-on-11 stuff. As soon as you have more, we want them!
DELTA comes in a rugged aluminium flightcase with its own unique, super-effective shockmount.
