Linn Sondek's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

The T.bone SC1100
Static large diaphragm microphone.
3 directional settings: cardioid, omni, and figure 8.
Requires 48V phantom power.


When unpacking, I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful aluminum box and the reassuring weight of the microphone.
It will mention the economic feet (eg Millenium) because they will be unable to maintain the SC1100 without their perch does slumps.
Directional settings are welcome and easy to use as easily accessible. The suspension has the same build quality as the microphone and it's all good.
Alas, I am a little disappointed with the "dark" side of the return of the microphone including recordings of acoustic guitars: farewell shimmering highs and defined my Ovation Custom Legend ... This model finally is very very close to the SC400 while costing twice as much. The solution should be doubled taken with a good dynamic mic. The alliance with the SC140 of the same brand proves excellent, I must say that it is an incredible deal and a must have without even considering its surprisingly low price. In transplanted guitar amp, the SC1100 does not depart from his character a bit dull but it goes much better and, again, it add a good dynamic proves that interesting as essential for the final rendering.
In summary, the SC1100 provides only little compared to most economic models of the brand if it is a choice between three types of directional. The excellent workmanship, this a real carrying case are undeniable advantages, but it is clear that it is very comfortable or for recording acoustic guitars or, to a lesser extent, for transplanting amplifiers. Have not tried the voice, so I will say nothing more.

The T.bone SC1100
Micro transistor. Use for home studio beginner.
Used in folk guitars, percussion, clarinet, harmonica, acoustic bass.


I have this mic for over a year. At the very beginning I was really pleased with the results that could offer this microphone. Normally, before I had at my disposal a SM58, then the difference between a static and a dynamic was obvious. When I received it was the revolution in my more modest home studio!

But then, gradually we become more demanding and it perceives shortcomings of this microphone, bass and low mids are very rough, the highs seem to be extinct. In short, I do not at all the results on my folk guitar (I do not even speak the clarinet). Since I bought an Oktava MK012, bein there's no picture! On the acoustic guitar completely outclasses Oktava Tbone! There's only harmonica I think the Tbone does not too bad.

Of the songs, you really tamper with the EQ to get a correct result. But in the end it still lacks terribly hot and precision.

I agree that given the price of one microphone can not ask for the moon. I think this is an excellent compromise for money for those starting out in a home studio so I put him just average. But if you ever have the means, it is better to save a little more ch'tit for something more appropriate (Oktava, Audio Technica, AKG214 ,...), without either having to enter and ruin the top range.

I do not do it again this election.

The T.bone SC1100
See further notice, I want to give my opinion on the quality of these microphones


I'll go a bit against al everyone here.
I just tested a SC1100 (which was happy until the day) against an old Senneheiser MD409U3 (300 euros on ebay germany second hand of course). The 409 is rather known as a great mic to a best-selling firm marshall or fender. I've tested with the good folk, through a preamp SCA N72 (excellent by the way) and I did the same with a SC1100. Well I sell my T Bone as soon as possible.
The tboe is correct because it is inexpensive, but even in the small qd quality audio.
I was testing a few weeks my new SCA preamps (one killing I repeat http://www.seventhcirclestudios.com/SCA/SCA.htm).
With Tbone, I found little improvement between the sound received with the preamps of my firesolo MAUDIO and those of SCA. I thought is weird c ... And then I thought, c is the "mediocrity" of the microphone that is prevented from hearing the difference. And bingo! With a real good the difference between the microphone preamps is obvious.
Conclusion to my experimentations: Tbone is ok if you are new to the audio but after a time of need to move on.
In passing the preamps of the Fireface 800 are very average, good for ADDA convertissuers contre.Mais I'm out on the ...
I put a 5 for value for money. If you put across is more than 9 scale value.
