Reproduce the sound of your guitar amp with perfect precision and depth
Designed by a guitarist for guitarists, the Sontronics Halo dynamic mic has been developed specifically for use on guitar amplifiers.
Thanks to Halo's retro-inspired look, this is not only the best-sounding but also the best-looking mic you can put in front of your guitar cab!
With its tight supercardioid pickup, Halo has excellent side rejection and will capture all the depth, presence and detail of your guitar sound without requiring any EQ or post-processing.
Whether you're in the studio, out on tour or recording at home, your performance will sit perfectly in the mix, just like that.
"Halo is awesome on guitar amps. It gives you a real direct, in-yer-face sound. It can make your amp push through the mix like a DI guitar with a plug-in. I love it!"
Andy Gray, Producer/Composer (Hard-Fi, Gary Numan, TT3D)
HOW HALO HAPPENED
Engineers and technicians have long relied on dynamic mics to record amplifiers, both live and in the studio, but being a guitarist himself, Sontronics’ founder & designer Trevor Coley wanted to create something that sounded better and looked more interesting than a regular handheld mic.
Combining a vintage look with cutting-edge capsule and metalwork technology, the Sontronics Halo is instantly recognisable and has been spotted in the studios and live set-ups of top guitarists including Joe Perry, Josh Homme, Mark Knopfler and Graham Coxon.
It has become indispensable for any recording and gigging guitarist thanks to its amazingly accurate, honest results with no need for EQ, allowing it to sit in the mix beautifully… every engineer’s dream!
Halo was designed specifically with guitar amps in mind, and will perfectly capture the ideal tone of both your guitar and amp in combination. Users tell us it also sounds fantastic for harmonica and snare drum too.
"Halo is amazing and not just on guitar amps… I use it on all kinds of instruments and percussion around the studio with amazing results. The combo of Delta and Halo on amps is stunning and we have four of each for our live set-up."
Pete Holmstrom, Guitarist/Producer (Dandy Warhols)
"Our pair of HALOs are in constant use. They accurately recreate all the frequencies meaning no EQ is required to give a rich tone. Sonically and visually these are all-round fantastic mics!"
Jake Belben, Engineer
