A family-run, UK-based microphone business with a passion for education and knowledge-sharing while constantly pushing boundaries of sound and design.

SONTRONICS® was founded in 2005 by guitarist, engineer and designer Trevor Coley, based on his drive to create professional-quality microphones at affordable prices.

Over the years, the range of Sontronics products has grown to include ground-breaking ribbon microphones, multi-award-winning valve mics, instrument-specific condensers, all-in-one recording packs, super-quality live microphones and best-selling podcast and broadcast mics, all of which combine unmatchable sound and performance with affordable pricing and an industry-unique Lifetime Warranty.

Many of the Dorset-based company’s microphones have become industry favourites, with its ribbon and valve mics used in sessions at Abbey Road on a daily basis, while famous users include Ed Sheeran, Aerosmith, Adele, Muse, Blur, Kings of Leon, the BBC and many many more.


Sontronics has always dedicated itself to education and its founder Trevor and other staff regularly give recording and microphone workshops at institutions, both in-person and virtually, as far afield as Nashville, India and Australia. 

Special discounts across its full range of products, including the recently launched, top-selling Podcast Pro microphone (available in 7 colours), are offered to ICMP staff and students, and you are encouraged to make contact with the Sontronics team if ever you have questions about recording techniques or specific microphone types.

Sontronics’ founder and designer, Trevor Coley, has said of this special partnership with ICMP:

“We have been partners with ICMP for almost as long as the Sontronics brand has existed, and it’s always a joy to work with and support ICMP’s brilliant staff, students and alumni. Educating and sharing knowledge is key to what we do here at Sontronics, and we all love the thought that, through our workshops and seminars, we might be helping ICMP students in their journey to become professionals in this industry that we love.”
