Sontronics SIGMA 2 Ribbon Microphone in the category
Builds On Its Predecessor Its been 11 years since the first SIGMA microphone came out and it has made its way into many popular professional recording studios. The SIGMA 2 builds on its predecessor to offer you an upgraded ribbon microphone that features everything the SIGMA 1 had and more. The SIGMA 2 utilises newly-designed electronics and a premium-quality custom wound transformer that have been handmade in the UK. Sonically the SIGMA 2 uses the same transducer as the original where the ribbon element is still a 1.8 micron ribbon with very powerful neodymium magnets. Additionally the SIGMA 2 comes supplied with a unique shock mount in a sturdy foam-padded ABS flightcase that allows you to keep the mic stored safely when not in use or being transported. Superb Sound Quality Ribbon mics are renowned for their smooth uncoloured audio characteristics but most of them have a transformer-based output that makes it hard to achieve consistency when using different preamps. The SIGMA 2 is phantom-powered which allows you to plug-and-play with any preamp. The SIGMA 2 has everything you want with a ribbon mic including the high frequency roll off. The SIGMA 2 manages to capture your recording with high detail and clarity making it ideal for recording vocals brass woodwinds guitars drums and more. It offers stunning clarity and definition in the top end and also richer mid and low tones. The SIGMA 2 features extremely low noise and incredibly high sensitivity making it ideal for recording low-level instruments or sources. It also features RFI (radio frequency interference) filters that ensure the signal remains interference-free making the microphone suited for live use as well.

Even with advanced Sontronics manufacturing techniques, it isn’t possible to automate the production of great instruments like this Sontronics SIGMA 2 Ribbon Microphone. 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.
