Henno Althoff (born September 16, 1960 in Lippstadt, West Germany) is a German record producer, recording engineer and studio owner, best known for his association with Australian fingerstyle guitarist Tommy Emmanuel.
Althoff, a long-time Chet Atkins admirer, specializes in the recording of guitar music. It was at a Chet Atkins Appreciation Society convention in Nashville in the 1990s where he met Emmanuel for the first time. After Emmanuel had moved to Europe, Althoff played a key role in getting him started there, he aided in organizing concerts.
Later, Althoff produced Emmanuel's collaboration with guitarist Jim Nichols titled Chet Lag (re-issued as Happy Hour) and recorded several more of the Australian's work. Emmanuel dedicated his composition Sanitarium Shuffle to him, referring to Althoff's Lippstadt home as his sanitarium.
