Show full description »

The Sontronics HALO is an innovatively designed dynamic microphone, specifically developed for the purpose of miking up guitar amps and cabs, both in the studio or in a live environment. This strikingly designed mic builds upon the technology found with the Sontronics¡¯ popular STC-80 but is shaped to optimize capture from the source, with the addition of springs built into the smart circular design to help isolate the mic from stage or floor vibrations. Halo accurately reproduces the punch and tone and raw power from your amp without all of the extra EQ adjustments.

¡°As a guitarist myself, I¡¯ve always longed for something more interesting than a regular handheld dynamic to put in front of my guitar amp,¡± Coley confides, ¡°and the popularity of our radical looking SATURN mic made me think I should design something specifically for guitar amps.¡± - Sontronics¡¯ founder and mic designer, Trevor Coley

    Sontronics HALO Dynamic Microphone Reviews

    7/10

    Sontronics Halo

    Ok, so it\'s a chinese mic, and when it arrived it did have a less sturdy feel than i thought, the springs hold the capsule in a weak and slightly wonky way, but it\'s not too bad. Overall it\'s a great looking mic, and has character.

    Plugging it in, i first tried it on vocals, it has a strange but unique sound, quite grainy but not at all unpleasant, good for backing vocals or an effected vocals mic. Basically it has character, but an usable one. Since it\'s not its main use anyway, that\'s a nice addition. And as a live vocal mic the pics would look ace, people would thing \"wow what are they singing into?\".

    So then plugging it onto a guitar amp, an Orange AD15, and it really is a nice alternative to the SM57 cliche. It has a graininess that works on guitar, and double tracking sounded HUGE, but not so huge that it swallowed the track. Huge, but focused, with a nice tonal colour. Not as dull as an SM57, so not as boxy. It would make a welcome addition to a mix to have this different tone.

    It\'s gotta be worth the asking price. And it has that extra character, and looks ace in photos. I got Serial Number 16, which is also cool, having a low SN and a mic no one else has yet.

    Alun.

    Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

    What prices we will match?

    We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

    The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

    Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

    Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

    Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
