Laser Targeting, Multiple Voiced Professional Instrument Microphone Utilising a Gold-Sputtered 20 mm Capsule

The Starlight is a small diaphragm, end fire condenser microphone featuring a sintered metal head which combines extreme durability with extraordinary audio transparency.

The addition of a laser not only makes precise alignment easy, it also helps achieve consistency when re-establishing the microphone position after de-rigging.

The 20mm gold sputtered capsule feeds into custom designed transformerless electronics, with low noise and ultra-low distortion as priorities. Using proprietary circuitry at the input stage of the mic amp rather than simple post-EQ, we have also given Starlight three different voices accessed via a switch on the microphone body.

Vintage voicing introduces some subtle low end lift while gently rolling back the extreme highs for a classic warm, smooth sound. The ‘middle’ Modern setting adds some airy highend lift while the third Hybrid setting delivers a nominally

flat response but with just a little low end lift. With its laser guide, sintered head and multiple voices, Starlight is the most comprehensive instrument mic package on the market today.
