Sterling Microphones

The next step in the evolution of Sterling microphones offers bold new looks, unmatched versatility and advanced tube, ribbon and FET designs. By carefully integrating traditional and modern technologies, Sterling has created a collection of mics that cover a wide array of studio applications.

The dramatic industrial design features an anodized, aluminum, extruded body with a diecast capsule enclosure that protects the internal capsule. The body itself features a diecast logo insert for a classic, future-retro look.

Sterling has also reinvented the shock mount, ensuring perfect positioning and isolation. Its toothed angle-adjustment keeps microphones exactly where you put them; while its aluminum/zinc design and premium automotive-quality titanium finish provide rugged construction that will last for years.
