STC 4038 Microphone
- c. 1950
STC 4038 Ribbon Microphone (in fitted case).
This bi-directional ribbon microphone was widely used across the BBC for recording and transmission. It was designed by STC as a cheaper alternative to the BBC PGS/1 microphone, which was too costly to make commercially.
This microphone was so popular that they continue to be produced today, by Coles Electroacoustics.
