Studio Projects B1
The Studio Projects B1 is a super cheap condenser microphone designed with the home studio owner in mind. The mic has a cardioid pick up pattern and a frequency response ranging from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. It has a built in -10 or -20 db pad. It comes with it’s own hard shell carrying case, a shock mount and a wind screen.


OVERALL OPINION

The Studio Projects B1 is one of the cheapest condenser microphones on the market and because of this has become a popular mic for home studio owners. I hadn’t used the mic until recently when a friend of mine bought it for his home studio. He has a very small set up with really only an mBox and Pro Tools, but a mic like this was all that he needed to make his set up a decent little recording rig for demos or home projects. The B1 is cool because you’re going to be able to record a lot of different things with it. It’s not the ideal microphone for any one application and definitely isn’t a professional microphone, but within a home recording environment it will definitely do the job. It’s a nice vocal microphone (again considering the absurd price), which is probably the application that most will be using it for. It’s helpful that it comes with it’s own shock mount and all the extras too. Having said all of this, I wouldn’t recommend the Studio Projects B1 unless you’re looking for your first microphone for a small home set up. It’s not an amazing mic but any stretch but the price makes it accessible to anyone. If you’ve already got a few mics at home this isn’t going to really do you any good but it’s a cool option to have if you’re looking to spend just about $100 US dollars on a condenser mic.

Studio Projects B1
Comes with a leather zipper bag, wind sock, and a mic cradle. All good quality and only $99.00!

$99.00 U.S.

OVERALL OPINION

This mic is unbelivable for the price. It works great for male vocals and even better for female vocals. At $99.00 you really can't go wrong adding this mic to your collection. I paid double the price for mics that don't sound this good.

For $99.00 I would have expected a plastic piece of crap. But the B1 is a solid well put together mic.

Did I mention this thing is only $99.00? I really feel like I got an amazing deal with this. Don't get me wrong, you won't be able to throw all your other mics away or anything but for the price it's a welcome addition to your collection.

Studio Projects B1
I suddenly recovered two I use a couple. Rather to make the atmosphere and resonances of a room or to take a choir.

OVERALL OPINION

I have other mics better (but still kind home studio RODE NT2000), but at 50 euros a pair, I could not pass it up. Honestly, it does the job but the sound is a bit messy. I amused myself with several acoustic guitars, it works very well on simple parts, but a big flatpicking fast and powerful will this mic knees! It's a mess right now.

But in this price range (close to 100 euros nine), it is at the top of the basket.

Studio Projects B1
Large capsule condenser microphone condenser Polar pattern hypercardioid.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a friend who told me to bring his voice catches on. Results and a sound inaudible because this mic has a lot of shine and if we add a voice hisses on certain syllables it's awful! Also a slight lack of warmth. As they say the previous reviews, this microphone may be in order to catch acoustic guitar accompanied by a microstrip. Remains a great value!

What kind of microphone? Condenser microphone and food "phantom"


OVERALL OPINION

I tried a bit of prestige while the model found in big studio (C414, solid tube, U87, U67 ..........)
I bought a year ago
it lacks a bit of heat but not very specific on far too bright, the precision in the bass is very limited but the rest of the spectrum is correct, it has a good dynamic.

Studio Projects B1
Everything is already said but I would put a less anyway. I use it only for voice and I see that I am not alone in saying there are too many to shine and a little too low-medium.
Must be dosed at best gain, output ... maybe I still use it badly. I have to use a goddess in the mix on the vocals or it whistles ...
I have not yet found the solution, if somebody ...!

Studio Projects B1
Good static delivered without the attachment to elastic damage. No antipop a foam windscreen but we want to put too much in decision ;-) , it's okay, the windscreen protects during transport.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for over a year, as micro "to do everything" and to use a marimba on stage.
It does not blow, but the voice I still have to deal severely with my preamp gain QuadMic.
It is well balanced, although I feel that I at least touch the voices when I use my old TLM 103 (but not the same price).
I now have 4 B1, so it is that I'm happy ;-) . No cons, it is clear to me that my next purchase will be more static "high end".
VERY good static to start in-home studio. Should help even though in the studio. Le do not deliver it with the suspension ...
September 2006 edit: always happy, they are solid! Of course, taken for sensitive (eg piano), a little more upscale is better. It is certainly a great location level quality / price!
May 2007 edition: senior media too now .. I leave the note, however, in terms of price / quality ratio. do not really tried other mics in this price I would mind later on

Studio Projects B1
Cardioid condenser microphone, attenuator and low-cut filter. suspension as provided. Apparently, strength and professionalism in manufacturing. In this price range, really an excellent product.

OVERALL OPINION

I used a pair to record my acoustic guitar, and also for solo singing. I also plan to use it in an overhead on drums. Given the qualities he has already expressed, I do not make me worry!
I had an earlier Behringer B2 Pro Studio Projects B1 for the same price, totally outclasses: breath less, better definition, better balance, and a discrete heat is surprising really. In my opinion, a master purchase.

Cot technique you already have all the info. for you ... ;) )
If I look at his quality techn. I will have to put a 6 / 10,
but given its small price I'm going to put a 9 / 10

OVERALL OPINION

Here almost two years since I bought our little B1,
Ben is an honest friend of Pigalle me fill the pipe,
otherwise I would not even possible eye to such a micro (must be said that the price is ridiculous is not it??)
So: not a fart noise, beautiful neutrality is the road distance from a given mild, a hint of brightness in the hq but nothing can be redibitoire, flexibility of use .... Finally, a lot of strength!
cot weakness?? and frankly not much anyway, about the price there is just nothing to say!

So please not this little micro will make you happy, keep warm in reserve to replace a 4040 without problem,
its versatility and quality manufacturing are impeccable ...
good song!
