Sontronics founder & designer Trevor Coley introduces our new Sontronics ARIA valve microphone for vocals at the NAMM Show 2014. Designed and developed in the UK, the new mic was beta-tested by producer/writer Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence + The Machine, Paul McCartnery), singer/songwriter PJ Harvey and the engineers at Abbey Road Studios. The mic is already being likened to a vintage valve mic, and has been used on Abbey Road sessions alongside one of their classic Neumann U47s, as used by John Lennon himself!

Price: £899 (inc. VAT), EUR 899 (plus taxes), US $1,299 (plus taxes)

Paul Epworth, Producer/Writer (Adele, Florence + The Machine, Paul McCartney)
