Used for live punk rock vocals
aftino, 04.03.2019
I'm the lead vocalist for a punk rock band and I was in dire need of a mic that has a clearer, more rounded-off & warmer sound, better ambient rejection, more feedback resistance and more robust build quality and aesthetics than the omnipresent 58. I also specifically was looking for a wired mic, since I was always under the impression that my wireless 58 kit was lacking some growl.

Upon opening the box and holding the mic for the first time, it's apparent that it's really built like an armored vehicle - even more so than the Shure. It's milled from a solid piece of anodized metal, and is heavy - but reassuringly so, and not in an inconvenient manner. It's also very stubby and short, and all black, with laser-etched branding. It's a lovely object to hold and to behold.

Sound-wise, it's very nuanced for a dynamic mic, clear in the highs but with very little-to-none need for deliberate de-essing. The marketing hype says it doesn't really need any EQ-ing, but plugged straight into a full-range single-speaker PA, I really did need to cut the lows, by... a lot. That said, it doesn't really run as low an output as your average dynamic, hence does not need that much gain increase for it to sound good.

Overall, a great buy, and a mic that I believe will indeed outlast my life expectancy, no matter how much abuse I'm gonna be throwing at it throughout its gigging life. I do, indeed, believe that it would benefit from a bit of compression and a decent amount of EQ-ing, hence my next link in the chain is going to be a pedal-format mic preamp (just ordered today).

Male Vocalist Dream
Black-Unicorn, 09.07.2018
I bought this mic after doing as much checking on the different microphones available.
This issue is as a male vocalist I found that some microphones didn't meet my requirement or had bad reproduction of my actually voice.

I found some reviews online that suggest this microphones and after checking the Spec Sheet I decided to take the plunge, I was not disappointed.

The Microphone its self is a good weight and nice and chunky and feels very solid. It a great microphone to hold if you have large hands.

Sound wise I couldn't be happier it is really good at capturing the lows and highs of my voice whilst also keeping the timbre of the sound I am singing.

Pros:
Great Sound
Solid construction
Better at male vocals that leading competitors
Cons:
Chunky not great if you have small hands

If you are a male vocalist I cannot recommend this microphone enough
I have advised My band mates to buy the same microphone for backing vocals as well.

Great alternative to Shure SM58.
Prop Dod, 08.10.2019
I'm a recording artist from Los Angeles, CA, currently living in Moscow, Russia, but got this mic in Germany this summer. Like some of us who are sick and tired of omnipresent Shure SM58, I've been looking for something new and there you go - Sontronics Solo! An absolutely great alternative that is equally great for live and studio work, It has a big body built like a tank with a nice logo on it. Produces a full warm sound and it sounds especially good with a windscreen (my preference). Low handling noise. Perfectly handles a great sound pressure so it's very good for loud screaming vocals and miking your guitar. Made in England. I'm really happy with that mic and Thomann's great service - received it in just 1 day! Highly recommended!
