Had t he pleasure of using some Sontronics microphones this weekend. Check the listening room to hear them.

We had 2 of the Orpheus microphones, used them stereo on the grand piano and a few times on the Native Flutes.
We also had the Apollo stereo ribbon mic. GREAT microphone.

We ran the Orpheus's through my PreSonus pre-amps. Never really used them before. They worked remarkably well, kept the drive down to keep them very clean.

The Apollo we ran through Sontronics stereo mic pre-amp.. Excellent unit!!

Overall I would give these mics a serious look if you are looking at very good quality studio mics. Not terribly expensive, you are getting a lot of bang for the buck.

Thanks for the heads up, Jeff. The grand piano sounded gorgeous.
