You get big sound from these small-diaphragm mics
Think small diaphragm microphones have a weak low-end? Then you haven't heard these! In our sound design, we have retained the fast transient response that offers the small diaphragm microphone its characteristic natural sound, while adding a full low-end more often associated with a large diaphragm condenser. With this combination, you can open new doors to small diaphragm microphone sound.
Use this versatile microphone pair for a range of applications
The ST-221 Torch was designed to help you achieve a broad palette of sound. The high SPL handling and generous dynamic range lets you record loud sources such as kick drums and guitar amps with no distortion. You can also experiment with room character or tight focused sounds with the interchangeable omnidirectional and cardioid capsules.
Complete with the mounts you need
The ST-221 Torch comes with every mounting option you need. The custom made shock mounts reduce excessive vibrations in any environment. The hard mounts are perfect for tight spaces and close micing. The custom designed mounting bar makes it simple to position the microphones for stereo recording. With these mounts you can resolve every placement challenge you face.
Interchangeable capsules and other premium components
Internally each ST-221 Torch features custom tuned 15.25mm diaphragm cardioid and omni capsules, which produce a one-of-a-kind conversion of sound waves.
