Since the launch of our SIGMA 48V ribbon microphone last year, we noticed that many musicians were using it in stereo pair configuration. As a result, we have created the APOLLO, a Blumlein X/Y stereo ribbon microphone, with all the silky smooth characteristics of the SIGMA… times two.
The open basket design allows APOLLO to soak up every nuance of your recording, capturing the whole ambience and resulting in a truly complete sound. If you wish, you can use just one channel of APOLLO for us in mono recordings, making it truly versatile.
APOLLO uses a similar unique shockmount system to SIGMA and this is extremely effective in providing isolation from noise transmitted through the mic stand.
The APOLLO and its special shockmount system are supplied in a luxury, velvet-lined ABS flightcase.
