Sontronics HALO - Dynamic mic for guitar amps & cabinets

Sontronics HALO is a striking-looking dynamic microphone designed for use on guitar amps and cabinets. The HALO has a dynamic capsule suspended on four spring mounts within a circular frame that protects the microphone from vibrations and rumble on stage or in the studio.

HALO is based on the Sontronics STC-80, a handheld dynamic microphone that gives stunning results on vocals, but which has also been increasingly used to great effect on guitar amps for live and studio work. For HALO, we took the STC-80 capsule, enhanced it slightly to capture the exact frequencies of your guitar amp and to take into account the different length and depth of the capsule housing. The result is the Sontronics HALO, which gives you all the bite, crunch and presence you could wish for without need to lay a finger on the EQ. Any guitarist shouldn't be without one!

"HALO is amazing on guitar. It gives you a real direct, in-yer-face sound! It's great, I love it!"

HALO is yet another of Sontronics founder and mic designer Trevor Coley's stunning vintage-inspired creations, reminiscent of the SATURN multi-pattern condenser mic. "As a guitarist myself," Coley explains, "I've always wanted to give other guitar players something that looks a lot more inspiring than a regular handheld dynamic to put in front of their amps and HALO is exactly that. It looks and sounds like no other guitar mic out there!"

Contact your local distributor or dealer or email us to find out where to buy.

"Our pair of Sontronics HALOs have been in constant use. These mics accurately recreate all frequencies meaning little to no additional EQ is required to give a rich tone."
