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.
The head basket and end cap on the Stellar X2 Vintage utilizes electrostatic painting to provide a very smooth and shiny black chrome finish that will make it stand out in any microphone locker.

Tape Op Magazine Review
"I was interested to hear how it would capture the sound of my Martin acoustic guitar, and was impressed with the results. The X2 Vintage performed liked a mic well above its price tag. The recording was full, precise, and the tone was nicely balanced. It captured both the delicate finger picking, as well as harder full-on strums with full articulation, and the finished results were natural sounding and true to the source. Having two of the X2 Vintage mics gave me the chance to experiment with some stereo guitar and vocal recordings. Here is where these microphones really shined. Normally, I have to try three to four different mic positions to capture a good open sound with acoustic guitar, but I got it right away with these. The moment I realized that I really liked this particular model came after recording vocals."
