The new Sterling Audio SP150SMK Condenser Microphone and Shockmount Package includes a large-diaphragm condenser mic, a multi-use shockmount and a hard mount. Capable of handling up to 136 dB SPL, the SP150 is a side-address, large-diaphragm mic with a low-noise, Class A FET capsule design and a cardioid polar pattern.
Sterling includes its high-quality SM4 spider-band shockmount, which isolates the mic from sub-sonic vibrations. You also get the company’s HM4 hard-mount for precise mic placement that larger mounts might prohibit.
The Sterling SP150 stands 7.1 inches tall, with a 1.9-inch diameter and weighs 1 pound. Frequency response is rated at 20 Hz to 20 kHz, with a sensitivity of 5 mV/Pa and equivalent input noise of <28 dB SPL. Like most condenser microphones, the SP150SMK requires +48 volt phantom power.
