The Sontronics Mercury is a high-quality tube microphone for professional use in the recording studio. Thanks to its directional characteristics, which can be continuously switched from omnidirectional to cardioid to figure-of-eight at the separate power supply, it is perfectly suited as an all-round microphone for recording all conceivable sources. From vocals to solo instruments, from percussion to ensemble and orchestral work, as overhead and room miking, the Mercury is extremely versatile and always delivers outstanding results.

The Mercury is handcrafted in England from high-quality components. This is noticeable in the technical values: under 12 dB(A) self-noise, 18 mV/Pa sensitivity. A handpicked ECC81/12AT7 vacuum tube delivers the extremely pleasing and warm tube sound.

Anyone who buys a new Sontronics Mercury and registers it with Sontronics within 30 days will receive a lifetime warranty.
