Featured on Sontronics' official "Famous Users" page. > "My discovery of Sontronics mics came about when I was looking online for a Helios Electronics preamp and I stumbled across the Sontronics HELIOS mic. It looked really cool, as did all the other mics on the website. I read up a bit more and couldn't find a bad review so was interested in getting hold of some for myself. > "I started out with a DELTA and HALO combination and the results are amazing! Not just on guitar amps either... I use them on everything. In my little studio I've been using them on my '60s Kalamazoo and my '50s Ampeg amps. > "I'm starting a band with my friend Herman Jolly, and he's been singing into a HALO. We've been using the DELTA on the acoustic guitar too. > "We've now got four HALOs and four DELTAs that we uses on the Dandy Warhols set-up live and in the studio. I've now got my eye on the SIGMA, SATURN and HELIOS mics and hoping to see a 500-series Sontronics preamp added to the range. The build quality and design are excellent, I'd recommend Sontronics to everyone... in fact, I already have!"more
Featured on Sontronics' official "Famous Users" page. > "Sontronics was recommended to me by Alan Moulder who had just been working with Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age). I tried the DELTA and SIGMA and fell in love straight away. To be able to get clarity and depth so close to the amp was amazing! > "The whole thing about Sontronics is that immediacy of things sounding great without having to do anything. The ORPHEUS has such a great bite to it and all the Sontronics mics seem to have a great natural compression without losing any clarity or detail. > "There is only praise to add about value for money, amazing customer support and the knowledge that Trevor [Sontronics MD and mic designer] cares about every aspect of the mics: the sound quality, build quality, design... and I love his ability to be as caring with the everyday consumer as he is with us professionals. And the mics look amazing! > "I use the mics all the time, be it with Editors, Orbital, Karima Francis, Foals or anyone else. The mics were used on PJ Harvey's Mercury Prize-winning album *Let England Shake* mainly DELTA, SIGMA, ORPHEUS and HELIOS. We used DELTAs on amps; ORPHEUSs on Polly and John's vocals, brass and ambience. ORPHEUS was our go-to mic for anything and everything: voices, snare drums, acoustic guitars, autoharp, ambience and piano. For Polly's latest album *The Hope Six Demolition Project* we also added an ARIA for vocals… she won't record her voice with anything else now! > "Both of those albums were the sound of Sontronics, firstly because they were used on so many sources but also, more importantly, because every time we put up a Sontronics mic it gave us what we wanted: clarity, character, purity and openness. The whole album was recorded flat, which is a tribute to engineer Rob Kirwan but also to the Sontronics mics!" > "I have DELTAs, SIGMAs, HALOs, a SATURN, ARIA, ORPHEUS, ARIA and DM-1B, and they all have that immediacy of things sounding great without having to do anything!"more
