Universal Audio SP-1 - Standard Pencil Microphones - Pair

  • Capture stringed instruments, drums, and more with a matched condenser pair
  • Harness smooth top-end for clear, professional stereo recordings in any environment
  • Add retro, road-worthy small diaphragm condenser pack to your mic collection
  • Get professional sound easily with included Apollo SP-1 presets
Along with the SD-1 dynamic microphone, the Universal Audio SP-1 Standard Pencil Microphone Pair represents Universal Audio’s first foray into the microphone market. This matched pair of small-diaphragm cardioid condenser mics is engineered to be your workhorse, everyday choice for stereo recording. With a retro finish and road-worthy build, these stylish condensers are a serious studio upgrade with vintage elegance for days.

From legendary analog hardware like the 1176 LN to a line of revolutionary audio interfaces, advanced analog modeling plugins and even a DAW, Universal Audio is constantly expanding their offerings—and microphones are the next natural evolution of the UA ecosystem. The SP-1 gives you all the quality, character and musicality that UA is known for, so you can record acoustic instruments, drums and percussion and live performances in stereo with pristine fidelity for instant album-quality sound.

With a range of 20 Hz – 20 kHz, the SP-1 captures the entire audible frequency spectrum with superb sensitivity and detail. The cardioid pickup pattern provides excellent rear rejection for accurate stereo imaging with minimal bleed. A maximum sound pressure level (SPL) rating of 142 dB allows these mics to handle even the most bombastic drummers, and with just 1% total harmonic distortion (THD), anything you put through them will sound clean and clear. Additionally, their compact size makes them easy to position even in small home studio situations.

In keeping with UA’s philosophy of creating an all-encompassing hardware-software ecosystem, the SP-1 includes custom Apollo channel strip presets containing hand-crafted EQ settings for adding shimmer to cymbals or bolstering horns and stringed instrument recordings with rich stereo sound. Also included are two mic stand mounts, two foam windscreens, two ” to ” thread adapters and a T-bar that makes it easy to set up precise stereo mic configurations. A must-have for any size studio, this package gives you everything you need to capture album-ready stereo sound anywhere.
