Our flagship microphone: The Stellar X2 Vintage Edition produces a sound that is reminiscent of iconic microphones.
At the core of Stellar X2 Vintage microphone is the iconic '47 style capsule. This capsule produces a very warm, mid-focused sound that is soothing for many applications. The X2 Vintage’s frequency response is perfect for string instruments as it brings out the warmth and mids rather than the highs. As for vocals, it prevents any unwanted sounds such as sibilance. The X2 Vintage uses a high-quality JFET circuit similar to that found in the X2 but with a few modifications to improve noise floor and transparency. Just like our X2, the X2 Vintage’s capsule is made with the same tolerances and Japanese imported mylar with our proprietary gold sputtering technology that increases sensitivity and reduces thin sounds.
Every Stellar X2 Vintage features a manually biased JFET and polarization voltage to ensure every microphone produces a high output signal and low distortion with a low self-noise. The head basket and end cap on the Stellar X2 Vintage utilizes electrostatic painting to provide a very smooth and shiny finish that will make it stand out in any microphone locker. All our microphones go through our intensive quality control process. This includes a frequency sweep test in our anechoic chamber as well as a self-noise test to ensure every circuit performs within specifications.
