stompboxjon's review"For Vocals or Acoustic Guitar"

The T.bone SC1100
The T.Bone SC1100 is a large diaphragm microphone with switch able omni, figure eight and cardioid patterns. I have used several similar microphones from this line like the Rode NT 1 and Studio Projects C1. The T.Bone SC 1100 didn’t really stick out to me that much when I was first looking at the specs of it. But after getting the chance to use it, I could hear why everyone else was loving this microphone. The T.Bone SC 1100 never gave me a bad recording at all, it wasn’t the price that I wanted it to be, but I still fished out the money and got my hands on it and still own it to this day. I do not use it as much though. It will work and sound great when using it with vocals or recording that acoustic guitar melody you just wrote!


I use the T. Bone SC 1100 with my M Audio 8TR interface and record into Pro tools. I am on my Mac Book Pro most of the time I am recording with this microphone. The SC1100 seems to be pretty well built and has held up well over the last few years. If you are looking into purchasing this microphone, I suggest saving up a little more money and going to a little better microphone. Because when you put the money out for the T.Bone SC1100 there is a small price gap between the next level of microphones up. So 100 more dollars could get you a big jump in recording quality if you can just hold off and save up a little more. But there is no doubt that this microphone is great for your home set up and it comes in a great design and well built. It is a win either way you go with this mic!

The T.bone SC1100
Microphone for voice and acoustic instruments


I use it for a few years and am satisfied.
For that I use it is perfect, I would do the same choice if the model just above, if I wanted a record I would really Pro Studio Pro.

The T.bone SC1100
Condenser microphone for singing, also works well with acoustic guitars and other instruments. Requires 48V phantom power. On the mic, 3 possible directivity: Omni, Cardioid and 8, which is quite handy.


I have been using about 8 ½ months, with a M audio fast track. I waited a moment to have a more critical eye on the thing, otherwise I would put "great ouahh the top!" as usually when you make a good buy.

This mic is really very good. I had never before dared static afraid to invest a little in the record, I sang in very low-end mic karaoke kind of large area, then SM58 and other mics of this type of dynamic. Then I also have also purchased a Sennheiser E835 is an excellent microphone. In short, I was dynamic. It was a shock when I plugged in all the gear, I said Wow! Its amazing it looks like a pro. This is the first impression you get if you've never really had a condenser microphone.

What I like is the sound of the guitar in particular that really stands out well for a microwave of this range. The sound of the voice is true, thereby making recordings nice and can work its tone and another.

Then of course, if you can afford, nothing beats a little more to invest in a SC2000 perhaps or look in another micro more upscale, but in any case is not to say: the quality / price ratio is at top of top.

For a first hand is the ideal!

With experience I will ever be so choice. It is a very good microphone and have first-hand in his park to start is a good thing.
At my stage, it is a little tired of the sound (at least for me) to the microphone, but it is also the pre-amp and I think that the microphone has not said its last word, and I am very happy at the present time and I know he will serve me much longer my comrade.

Hoping you have lit.

see previous review


I use it since 2006. I recorded 4 mini CD with 4 tracks. It does

The price / quality ratio is excellent. When I received the package I hallucinated. The kit, suspension, mouth to the microphone, waouuuh, it does. I thought I was in a real studio in my living room <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" />

Now his side, you have plenty for the price. Certainly it is far from a Neumann U87, but it is 10 times cheaper ... An excellent microphone for making pre-production at home

I tested my Shure Beta87 compared static scene. Incomparable. The Tbone is far above.

Yes I would do this choice.

The T.bone SC1100
It is a micro trs heavy and strong, comes with the suspension, I use it for vocals and miking acoustic guitar.

For singing, it is good, the sounds are clear and trs going well in the mix. The dynamic is trs sensitive to the slightest shrug of voice I fall faster in the red, so I will have to buy a compressor.

For the guitar, it must be my fault, I have yet to find a position making the good, the sound is too dull and unattractive stuck. I'm working, but I sup to the microphone to be so that a. gnial To see ...

The microphone is equipped with a high pass that I switched let systmatiquement. The positions 8, cardio I do not use, I leave in omni.


I use the microwave for a few weeks. PSE attention it heavy, get a solid foot (2005 to the Millennium Thomann is not strong enough, I paid the price).

I like its look, its transparency for vocals (compar SM58 is obviously not a photo). I like the fact that unless I can not find the right sound for my guitar.

I compared it with a Rode NT1000 microphone (I recorded my own voice for a song in the studio of a friend). The rode is much better, there's no picture, but the state of my finances as it is, I folded the T.bone, which for its price, nevertheless remains substantially correct. To be used primarily for voice.

The T.bone SC1100
Class A condenser microphone with dual diaphragm studio dor of 2.65 cm (1.07 "). SETTING THE polarity Cardioid, Omni and Bipolar. Low-cut filter (100Hz). Complete with suspension and mtal deluxe aluminum flight case.

Rponse in frquence: 30 Hz - 20 kHz
Sensitivity: 16 mV / Pa
Polarity: Cardioid, in 8, Omnidirectional
Noise level: 20 dB
Max SPL: 125 dB
Impedance: <200 Ohms
Power supply: 48V phantom


Trs of good construction and finish, the SC1100 is in fact the SE Electronics Z-3300 (Chinese micro-Feilo the socity China) https://www.seelectronics.com/homepage/z- r-3300.htm estempill brand Thomann T-Bone.

Given its price, its possibilities (especially SETTING THE polarity!) And its remarkable building (when it was in the hands, we say: waouuu is not plastoc and its weight of ca Cahouet PSE), the SC1100 is a perfect choice for any application for registration, both for voice and for instruments, acoustic or amplified, and I can assure you that he trs good job. It is quite neutral in its return despite lgre bump from 5kHz (Cardio mode).

I therefore advise all home-studio owners who do not want to ruin for a rsultat worthy of the name!
