    Designed by Sontronics' founder and designer Trevor Coley, and developed alongside UK artists and producers as well as the engineers at Abbey Road Studios, the Mercury is hand-built in the UK Sontronics HQ.

    Taking things up a step even further than their multi-award-winning ARIA, the Sontronics Mercury employs the highest grade components (most of which have less than 1% tolerance, unheard of for a microphone at this price) and a hand-selected and tested European-made ECC81/12AT7 vacuum tube, all of which result in absolutely impeccable results, whatever application you're using it for.
