MustangP51D's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent for a beginner!"

The T.bone SC1100
Micro Static Chinese T. BONE (the same as the SE Z3300 A) capacitor 2 membranes.


I received it today, I knew that dynamic microphones (SM58, Beta 85 and T.bone) and I have a Static Neumann KMS 105 (geared more "scene" that home studio, and there ... it's for my home studio).
I compared this with the KMS 105 microphone Chinese testing them both in an ISA ONE preamp Focurite, well, it's incomparable. The SC1100 is much better, much more air and that's what I was looking for. When I compare it to the KMS 105, I find it almost "deaf"!
The level seems caught twice as hard for the SC1100, I am much obliged to lower the gain of the preamp. The best results in the ear are also in position impedance "Med" ONE of the ISA (which corresponds to 200 Kohm).
As I begin, there will be details that escape me, but in accuracy and to make my voice ... there is no picture, that's it I needed.
I'll start with that, then in a while I see if my level of demand pushes me towards something more expensive.
Attention to the fact that I am not a "pro", my opinion is only worth what my ears hear! But for the price, I find this very serious micro, comes with its efficient support (favor one foot "right"! As specified in a notice below, the microphone is a bit heavy).
I do not serve as the position Cardio and not the filter for now.
If I had to redo this choice, I'd do it again without hesitation!

The T.bone SC1100
- What kind of microphone? (Song, sound, mixed ..)

I use it for a feminist voice and a voice man, transplanted more acoustic instruments (mostly guitars).

- What technology? (Electret, condenser ...)



- How long have you use it?

In recent days, resulting in a flat on my mind that I deserve the updater comes in a few weeks.

- What is so special that you like most and least?

Aspect: it is solid, well made ... we do not feel like the Camelott in his hands. Moreover, attention to weight large enough to grant him a walk worthy of the name;)

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

Ooh there ... is an understatement ... Apex Studio Projetcs etc ... I stepped up testing for weeks in a more or less good (in mag) ... parraisaient all very correct ... but I followed my instint and knowing that the SC1100 is really a SE Z3300 débadgé worth 2.5 times the price ... I followed my intuition.

- How would you rate the quality / price?

For me, he is unbeatable because it has all the necessary options to make it versatile, including directional!

In addition, it is easy to implement investments, and tolerates approximate (attention anyway).

It has a headroom enough to satisfy me of my good preamp on my 828 MKII.

During the first taken, I was absolutely delighted with the results!

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes, it's typically the kind of microphone that will please a connoisseur in his home studio, which means the stuff of great quality at an unbeatable value for money;)

I do it again this election ... Moreover, I love buying and feel immediate avoid disappointment and for purchasing equipment that exactly meets my specifications;)

So I do not say that the experienced technician did not find a few flaws ... but the amateur who wants to equip itself in a very correct and that is that his ears are merely ... is the happiness bar at that price;) (do not be swayed by marketing;) )

Update 15/01/2008: Well I come back as promised with a little more perspective on this microphone. Its design is nickel. I confirm that weight requires a walk worthy of the name.

I told a deputy anti-pop that is useful in view of the sensitivity of the microphone. It has a large enough gain ... and anti-pop makes a natural frame for the singer.

The directional characteristics are useful. One regret, however, it lacks a bypass when you want to change the directivity. Let me explain, the condo should not be super great, because every change, I take "click"! This forces any decline, to cut everything to make a change ... not very comfortable when you are looking for the best settings;)

Chef's tip to avoid these "CALACS" which can damage the preamp abd co, install an AB box acting as "bypass" "on / off";)

Otherwise, a microphone of this quality at this price ... it does not spit on it. The disgruntled (as usual) will tell you it's nice of the "m. .." blah blah blah ... if you are an amateur, a beginner wanting to equip themselves properly ... if your facility is not "professional" ... please;) I confirm my notes ... for now;)

Tin-Man's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

The T.bone SC1100
I use it for my singing and acoustic guitars.

What I mean is when I save what I hear on the track, and I only use the "preamp" in which I use as a table (Tascam 488 MK2 ...)


I tested for a short week.

For acoustic guitars we still have much place (I prefer to handle) ...

Unbeatable value for money .... (158 € chez Thomann ...)

I do it again this choice without pb.

PS: Also, on one foot, he has to face.

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

The T.bone SC1100
Micro srement singing and acoustic guitar soon.
Handle with prcaution, store and use for APRS avoid the clogging of dusts.
Think of pop filter.


I've had a few days.
I like the look heavy, solid, well packed in a super case.
I have not tried but only seen other models, and less than 500 euros, it is better that the 158 who did score that!
For the price, you can not do better. It's srieux.
Rest the fears of the reliability of the made in china, but you really have no bowl to have a bad microphone invoice.
I do it again this choice, because for the studio, it is excellent, no onreux, and it is better than a dynamic course.

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

The T.bone SC1100
We know


What makes me laugh is that I was the first to talk about Tbone on AudioFanzine
and I was taken to pro with this microphone coupled to a BLUETUBE
racing results, 166 euros + 150 euros for the preamp and taken directly to a mix of pro tools

I do not think you could do better elsewhere, or any equivalent price
I can only highly recommend this couple to performance and unbeatable value for money

a great job,

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

The T.bone SC1100
Just Purchased the SC-1100 and in one word ... "Amazing." Used it for female vocals and it sits in the mix extrememly well. I Have Used MOST high end mic's and T-Bone this IS as good as Any of the best microphones on the market. I am a Canadian producer and composser and can expect the best translation of a performance. This T-Bone SC 1100 Delivers in Tons. The quality of the finish is outstanding. You Would Think It Was a microphone worth 10x it's price. As one person here .. Said "It Is not a great microphone for the price ... IT IS a GREAT microphone Basta. I Used a vintage tube pre-amp with" JJ "tubes. Very warm to say the least. Well done Thomann for over seeing Such a fine product.


I just Received the microphone today and Used it for a singer from "Star Academy" ...

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

The T.bone SC1100
This is a studio microphone with 3 static pattern (omni, cardio, and 8)
Ncessite a +48 V phantom power supply
Delivered in a small suitcase with elastic suspension and spare.


It is a microphone that I had a Christmas thank you the first Christmas and I must say that before a habitu dynamic microphones compltement it changes me!
It is prcis, possde good amplification, sturdy, and dlivre an extraordinary price for the 166 !!!!!!
The only say (a change BMOL) is for me the suspension is mtal and that seems less sturdy than the rest
But if the report is qualitprix gnial!
Over time, I head over to the Neumann m'instant but for beginners I, I'm not too much in me so it is ideal for micro couraging a good job in my little studio.
I also SC 300 and SC 400 and I catch a couple of sounds on flute, guitar ... trs and they are good too for the price
I put 9.5 just for the suspension but otherwise it's all good!

The T.bone SC1100
Micro chant static phantom power supply, see other opinions.


Received Friday from Thomann in Germany (sent one week, sturdy packaging, delivery perfect). Small problem: lack of documentation. mas is a good micro ... We would like to know just what to avoid (at the phantom power supply, etc ... and they should say that we should not fiddle about with the switch in shape while it is plugged in: it's been the holy crackles ...).

Otherwise accurate sound across the spectrum. I'm pretty amazed for a microphone in this category. Before I recorded with microphones shure dynamic (SM, beta). The difference is obvious, for a comparable price. Quite sensitive to pressure. Anti-pop is necessary and do not stand too close to the voice.
The high pass filter is a bit wild for my taste and somewhat distorts the sound. I prefer to use an EQ after.

This seems to be indeed a clone of the SE 3300A 530E sold instead of 166 for this one. Do not get it ... Declawing is the effect of probably ... Or is the model of the previous year?

I recommend this mic for home studio with no problem. Then for users more pros, I do not know if it's worth a Neuman, but the ratio Q / P is amazing.

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

The T.bone SC1100
Micro static transistor, see other opinions. It moni, cardio and Figure 8.


I use it for a few weeks, and I did all the tests I wanted to do with.
The sound is clean, prcis, dynamic, clear, and e grain is not bad at all! I tried a lot of things before you buy, the MODEL z3300 is in electronics is the same.
APRS APRS several tests and have learned a little more use, this microphone is a bomb. For voice, omni is perfect, the spectrum is IDAL and it is easy to mix, mix as you can without losing presence.
For guitars, engaged in cardio rose trs is good but a little dlicat aplcer. Engaged in omni loignegnrale yes trs bieen cardio is also dynamic and prcis, it loses nothing of its original. In making the above, it is very well even if I had to prfre a small micro cap personally.
The ratio quality price is unspeakable. I test the more expensive mics that sounded both silent but the signal more difficult gnralement mixer and equalizer. The more I touch the eq at all when I make a decision.
In an audio system is a low cost diamond, a marvel, simple to use and perfect for any type of use. Truly a gem!!

Really feel CATEGORY apsser the above with this microphone from what I used before that silent yet to the same price almost. My preamp is transfigured, I eur discovering a presence and a grain that I do not have supper. I know that micro aps Submitted suit me better than a Neumann TLM 103 that I had the opportunity to test, ready for a friend ... But we share in the rev up the microphone range so unaffordable and especially a little silly with the rest of my little low-end stuff.

I would do well Obviously this choice and if I had the means I Rasht taken for live scratching and bass amp and amply keyboard.

I faity the ultimate test any time. I made friends Listen to models made with the microphone and Others Classified done with my other stuff without prvenir of who did what. Blind to your exact t test unanimous. The models voice / folk / electric guitar made with this microphone the sound, sic "as real CD", which I could only take a mix of drawing done before.


APRS 2 months of use, a package taken, voice, folk, ambience etc. .... This is not a good micro "value" as usual, which does Not saying anything ... ... It's a good mic at all.
