Sontronics Halo – No Longer Available

Dynamic microphone for guitar amps and cabinets
MFR# Halo

Product Description

The latest microphone to join the Sontronics family is yet another striking model, this time a dynamic microphone designed for use on guitar amps and cabinets. The Sontronics 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.

Features
  • Dynamic microphone designed specifically for guitar amps & cabs with vintage-inspired design
  • Gives you all the presence and bite but without needing to touch the EQ!
  • Developed from the Sontronics STC-80
  • Spring-mounted capsule in circular frame protects from vibrations and rumble
  • Lifetime warranty
Halo is based on the Sontronics STC-80, a handheld dynamic microphone that gives stunning results on vocals, but has also been increasingly used to great effect on guitar amps for live and studio work. The HALO takes the same capsule, enhances it slightly to capture the exact frequencies of your guitar amp, and the result is all the bite, crunch and presence you could wish for without need to lay a finger on the EQ.

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!"

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
