A straight-to-the-point overview of the Solo microphone, from Sontronics

Product type: Supercardioid dynamic microphone

Target market (s): live vocalists, live musicians, front-of-house engineers, venues, recording studios, home studio set-ups, guitarists, drummers, touring companies, hire companies, rehearsal studios

What’s new? The SOLO picks up where the STC-80 left off with a redesigned, sleek body and a tighter supercardioid pattern.


Details: The SOLO is a supercardioid dynamic microphone for live vocals but also ideal for guitar amps, snare and kick drum on stage and in the studio. Designed in the UK, the mic is crafted from aluminium with a black military-grade anodised finish and engraved logo and name on the front. The SOLO feels solid but not weighty in the hand and is supplied with its own mic clip and a handy zip-up pouch to store and transport it safely. The SOLO is an environmentally conscious microphone too, as the packaging, foam and printed sleeve are all made within 30 miles of Sontronics’ Dorset HQ and all are 100 per cent recyclable.
