Guitar Center Professional’s Sterling Microphone Sweepstakes Giveaway
Is Up and Running

— As part of its ongoing sweepstakes series, GC Pro highlights Sterling’s ST69 microphone, a $1199.00 value —

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, July 20, 2011 Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users, has launched its latest online sweepstakes at www.gcpro.com. The new contest, featuring a Sterling ST69 Multi-Pattern Tube Condenser Microphone, is now live and will run through September 30, 2011, shortly after which a brand new contest will begin.

Several times a year, GC Pro management selects one particular product from a high-end gear manufacturer to feature on the website and give away as that sweepstakes prize. This latest contest features a Sterling ST69 microphone, a $1199.00 value. The ST69 is an excellent choice for recording engineers and musicians looking for a superior studio microphone. A combination of new and traditional technology, blended with Sterling’s Disk Resonator™ system, yields wide frequency response and quick transient response without sacrificing warmth and tone. It is ideal for capturing the full, detailed sound of vocals, acoustic and electric instruments, and drums. And its precision-machined, brushed stainless-steel finish complements the ST69's technical brilliance.

Greg Riggs, Sterling Product Manager, stated, “Sterling proudly sponsors GC Pro’s sweepstakes contest with an ST69 Tube Condenser microphone package. The ST69 studio microphone is equally suitable for a variety of projects from major label work to serious home recording.”

To enter the contest, users simply go to gcpro.com and click on the “Sweepstakes” tab. There, entrants will complete and submit a short entry form. The winner will then be selected at random and contacted after September 30, 2011. Complete rules can be found at gcpro.com. Past sweepstakes have featured products from such manufacturers as Blue, Apogee, Focusrite, JBL, Mackie and SSL.

For more information and complete rules, please visit www.gcpro.com.
