Premium Internal Components
Internally each ST-221 Torch features custom tuned 15.25mm diaphragm cardioid and omni capsules, which produce a unique conversion of sound waves. The subminiature military grade vacuum tube generates a fantastic tone and adds a unique character in your recordings. Finally, the custom-wound output transformer and premium electronics come together to give you exceptional performance and original sound.

Unique Character
In our sound design, we have retained the fast transient response you expect from small diaphragm condenser microphones, while adding a full low-end more often associated with a large diaphragm condenser. With this combination, you can open new doors you never thought possible with a small diaphragm mic.
