Sontronics ARIA Valve Condenser Mic Revealed
After a teaser in the past week, Sontronics have revealed that their new microphone, beta-tested by Paul Epworth and PJ Harvey, is the Sontronics ARIA Valve Microphone.

Ideal for not only vocals, but piano, acoustic guitar and cello too. Housed inside the chromed grille is a large, edge-terminated capsule which captures all the detail and subtleties of any vocal, while the hand-selected tube lends a character that you'd expect find in a classic vintage valve mic that costs ten times more.

The Sontronics ARIA will give you stunning, beautiful results on every recording, thanks to its silky-smooth characteristics, its accurate response and our trademark Sontronics high-frequency roll-off.

Founder Trevor Coley has said "both Paul and Polly fell in love with their prototypes, so much that we had to negotiate heavily to get the models back in order to get the mic into final production!"
