The Sontronics Aria has been extensively tested by Paul Epworth, PJ Harvey and Abbey Road studio engineers and gives stunning results with silky top ends and exudes smoothness, perfect for singer and spoken words.
Inside, the Aria features a hand-crafted 27mm edge terminated capsule housed in a tapered grille. It also includes a European 12AX7 valve carefully selected and fitted by Trevor Coley.
The microphone comes in an aluminium case that also houses the shockmount and SPS-2 power supply and cable.
