Studio Projects TB1 : stompboxjon's user review
"The Best of the B Line from Studio Projects"
I have had a lot of experience with Studio Projects microphones (many models), but the TB1 is a valve microphone that uses some of the highest quality materials and parts to create its sound. When using the TB1 you will notice right away the natural sound, and warm tone that you will get with your vocals. The TB1 by Studio Projects is one of the best in the “B” line of microphones that they have come out with, and it is also probably the most expensive. You wont need to purchase this microphone for your home set up. It is just to costly to invest in getting this to record demo’s in your spare bedroom. The TB1 wasn’t created for the home musician, it was manufacture using the best quality parts to give the best quality sound possible. I have heard microphones that cost almost 4 thousand dollars not sound as good as this though, so the value of a microphone that you are going to get for the money is excellent.
The TB1 is very precise when recording and does very well not picking up any background noises or unwanted noises. You can use the microphone as is, and not have no clicking or popping problems. The tone you will get is very natural with almost a 0 background noise interference. I have very happy that I had the chance to use the TB1 several times, I do no own the TB1 but I do get a chance to use it a lot, probably around 2 or 3 times a month and each time I get a great sound. If I every open my own studio, this will be an easy decision to purchase for me. The best part about the TB1 is the fact that you will get a crystal clear sound when recording, and the downfall of that is that you can afford to purchase it for your home set up. But you have to take the good with the bad. It is a great microphone!
