6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Analog Valve Warmth

The Sontronics Mercury Valve Microphone builds on the success of the multi-award-winning ARIA microphone, designed to suit any recording application, from percussion to vocals, string ensembles and more. The microphone itself is designed and developed alongside some of the most renowned UK artists and producers as well as engineers from Abbey Road Studios to attain immense sonic accuracy and audio fidelity. At the heart of the Sontronics Mercury Variable-Pattern Vale Microphone is the hand-selected, European made ECC81/12AT7 vacuum tube, delivering the classic warmth and punch associated with vintage valve microphones.

Sweepable Polar Patterns

One of the most unique features of the Sontronics Mercury is the near endless choice of polar patterns, thanks to the sweepable control knob. The Sontronics Mercury studio microphone features three main polar patterns including omnidirectional, figure-of-eight and everything in between. The sweepable control knob allows you to switch between polar patterns and dial in the right amount of each for a unique pickup sound. Combined with the extended frequency range, this unique variable polar-pattern delivers exceptional audio fidelity, capturing every nuance of your source audio.

Design & Connectivity

The highly robust design features an all-metal construction, easily withstanding the rigours of extended and prolonged use. The sleek and stylish design features a PAD (0, -10dB) control on the front of the microphone as well as filter (linear, 75Hz) controls. The included professional power supply includes an integrated medical-grade interference filter as well as a low-noise design for enhanced audio performance.
