Variable Pattern Selector One of the main features of the Sontronics MERCURY is that it gives you an infinite choice of polar patterns from omnidirectional cardioid to figure-of-eight and everything in between. By using the sweepable control knob on the included power supply you can switch seamlessly between each polar pattern with impeccable precision. When you switch through the polar patterns you can hear the room opening and moving. Each polar pattern is precise providing you with a truly accurate pattern. Highest-Grade Components The MERCURY is hand-built in the UK and utilises the highest-grade components most of which have less than 1 percent tolerance. It also features a hand-selected and tested European-made ECC81/12AT7 vacuum tube which delivers superb results. The combination of quality components with Sontronics engineering and passion combine together to create one of the highest-quality valve microphones ever made. The MERCURY mic also features extremely low self-noise providing you with clear recordings. Sounds Stunning On Anything The MERCURY is designed to sound stunning on whatever youre working on. It offers a huge amount of depth and richness with plenty of character warmth and detail. The Sontronics MERCURY is versatile and can be used on anything including vocals pianos strings brass woodwinds guitars drums orchestral ensembles and room miking. Whatever youre working with the MERCURY will deliver those much needed results. The MERCURY provides you with a thick full sound as well as top-end shine. The microphone also features a -10dB pad switch for high-output instruments and a low-cut filter switch to remove any unwanted low-end rumble that may be present in the recording space. Included Accessories The microphone also comes with a range of accessories. Included is a bamboo box that accommodates the microphone allowing you to store it away and protect it from any dust when not in use. A shock mount is also included. This features a clever locking lever that provides a much tighter grip to keep the microphone steady when recording. The included XLR mic cable ensures you can get set up and ready straight out the box. Additionally an aluminium flightcase allows you to store all the accessories and the microphone together. The flightcase provides maximum protection for all your equipment when on the move. Reviews “The Mercury is a classic microphone in the making.

Even with advanced Sontronics manufacturing techniques, it isn’t possible to automate the production of great instruments like this Sontronics MERCURY Vintage Edition Mic & Vintage Mullard Vacuum Tube. The complexity of the task, combined with the need for constant awareness of the materials being used and the ability to adjust for minute variations, means that there is no substitute for the skill and sensitivity of experienced craftspeople.
Turning designs into great instruments isn’t easy. Technical drawings can’t convey the intended tone of an instrument, or the construction methodology required to create the desired characteristics and sound. Before building a new guitar can begin, the plans and intentions of the designers are discussed with the craftspeople at the factory in order to develop an appropriate production process. Every guitar is different, and coming up with the ideal production methodology and workflow for each guitar is critical.
