@beher's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good value for money"

The T.bone SC400
Large diaphragm mic
: Cardioid
Frequency response: 20 Hz - 20 kHz
Requires 48V phantom power
Low-cut filter: 100 Hz
Suspension and bag included


The sound quality is a pleasant surprise for a microphone that price, mine suffers from some buzz at the XLR connection, nothing serious, but it's never happened to me on more expensive mics. Next, we must be aware that the microphone is not the only parameter to consider for a good recording, there is the preamp and the environment of the room is recorded. I tested it on different preamps, not very convincing result and with some rather stunning with DBX286s. We must find the right balance with the available budget.
I recommend it for budget travelers, this microphone does a good job. You can get an idea by listening to my demos Mupiz, the song is recorded with (http://www.mupiz.com/beher).
I think I will invest in another micro-level than the future while keeping it anyway because he convinced me.

The T.bone SC400
Characteristics see other opinions.
I bought it as a beginner, to see if it was better to save my home stage microphones. The answer is clear: it is the day and night. Let me explain. This mic is super sensitive. he heard footsteps on the floor. So taking care to protect the sound recording (I'm not in a studio still there cars that pass down my apartment), and although you hear many things that did not get my micro Scene same price (Shure PG57 and PG58). Finally my guitars have nice harmonics for saturations which was not true for the PG series (I play with a tube amp, and PG gave a side transistors to overdrive ... grrrr). I record at home I do not blow up the twin to my background and I have a super nice saturation. this is the first essential for clean sounds it is true it is beautiful. For voice I also use, and it works well for harmonicas. In fact I use it for everything except for the bass or I go into DI.


I use it at least two years, it became the micro enregisterment my Ynco group. our latest songs are recorded and placed on the net with this microphone, you can judge for yourself (JM blues Subtittle, Cesium 137 ... etc). it remains a good microphone market, we have no professional pretensions, we are amateur musicians who wish to make their very own music without breaking the bank. To listen to https://www.reverbnation.com/ynco

A reproach to him, yes, there could be more dynamic, more bass, but after I have no great preamp 1000 roro, but somehow put a mic preamps 60 euros in 1000 it roro useless.

So I definitely recommend this purchase if you want to buy a studio microphone if you have a limited budget or as first purchase, you will discover with this microphone while a part of the record that you do not necessarily know a microphone stage even good (SM58-type).

The T.bone SC400
Large diaphragm condenser microphone.


This mic is praised by the vast majority of users and I will not do anything other than to award him the best reviews. First production suffers no default is there is a great product. I was quite positively surprised by the weight of the SC400: yes, it weighs its weight, this microphone! Be careful to choose the foot that are for him in my case, I strongly regret the choice of a Millenium MS-2003, the boom is unable to maintain the SC400 without plunging nose and regardless of the force applied to clamping the different rings.
His side, that's good! I can easily imagine that there are better, but at what price? To use my Home Studio is largely satisfactory: acoustic guitars sound really good and my amp likes to be transplanted by The.T.Bone, especially coupled with a good dynamic. I can say that the recordings through the SC400 offer true quality. Here is a serious microphone, high quality and a very reasonable price. Doubt whether there is a purchase advisor to many musicians and in many situations.
A purchase I do it again without hesitation. Fully satisfied.

mounkiman's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent quality / price ratio"

The T.bone SC400
Micro versatile type wide diaphragm condenser (100Hz low cut filter)


I bought this micro end of December 2012, and I am very proud!
I started barely computer music, I begin to use it with my sound card M-Audio Fast Track (with the phantom power required to use it), and I was surprised to see the quality of a micro capacitor 58th!

The first thing to say about this mic is that for the low-end means still little breath and this is a chance! (From my point of view)

For decision-acoustic guitars this really is the best with this microphone! (Reworking the sound with an EQ of course) it comes out very beautiful sounds
As for the voice is mixed! even with the anti pop filter, the "sssss" are very difficult to catch up and screaming in post-production, especially female voices, male or acute, by against a deep voice and then it gets really interesting because it colors keeping the natural voice!
To dub amp: nothing to say! The sound is true to the sound of the amp!
I had the opportunity to record a violin difficult but it looks good (still prefer a microphone or tape a small membrane for an instrument like that)
Recording an upright piano: Top! placing preferably to the acute part of the soundboard.

I recommend it to any beginner (and even amateur on a budget) in computer music! If it again, I'll buy! (And I'm not paid by T bone https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif)

Good buy!

The T.bone SC400
It is a large-diaphragm mic, one need phantom power 48V
For the price it is still drunk with his suspension and a bag


I have 2 years. No reliability issues including the suspension is a little shaky.
I also have two Shure Beta 57 and 58.
I no longer use the T Bone for acoustic guitars since I beta 57 which is much brighter and ent in my opinion.
For voice against it for correct rendering even if it tends to saturate, bedding all ambient noise and have limited acute
I now use it with a preamp tube mic alesis and the result is better vrimant: example on this piece when I took the voice with T Bone and guitars and dobro with the Beta 57: http://www.riffworld .com / Members / chavilbus / mayyounever
Obviously there must always liaise with the price and there it is hard to beat for 50 euros!

bolenti's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Effective on acoustic guitar"

The T.bone SC400
Large diaphragm condenser, cardioid, comes with anti-shock bracket and carrying case, 48V phantom power, 100Hz low cut filter.
Be careful because even though I have had no trouble so far, the support must be handled rather carefully to avoid breaking anything or screwing up.


I use two SC400 for over a year and I use it mainly on vocals and acoustic guitars made in home studio environment. For both applications, I prefer it (almost) always the AT2020, SM57, SM58.

The features of this microphone I like least are:
1) The fact that he is not well saturated and high sound pressure levels (eg djembe, pop filter required for voice meshed close)
2) Do not gloss over the transplanted guitar amp, why I use an SM57
3) the low-cut filter is not accessible without removing the microphone (something I have not done)

The price / quality is so good that after a test, I wanted a pair.

nosix's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" surprise!"

The T.bone SC400
is a micro in the studio (a capacitor). I use a pre-amp tube Mp Art 38Euros new! must have the 48v anyway, with a large diaphragm which gives remarkable accuracy both for the song the sound of an amp or acoustic guitar. it's a great investment I have in a year, I read elsewhere that others have used it for 5 years without fatigue! Go For It! !


I Tulisa past year
this is my first micro
I love the sound reproduction "as is" and the multiple possibilities of capture (vocals, guitar, amps ..)
The quality / price: excellent!
choice carry a

The T.bone SC400
I tried to use on the song, I was not satisfied in relation to my Shure PG27 or my M Audio Nova.
for making his guitar that's okay


1 year, I do not like the definition of the song too messy for decision-Recorder is not too bad. For value for money is very correct.
I do not buy other

titoo87's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good entry-level micro"

The T.bone SC400
Cardioid studio microphone static ncessitant a 48V phantom power.


I use it for about two years, with a pop filter. Despite the fact that it is cardioid, it captures a lot of background noise, an anti-reflector may also be useful.

I Rode NTK for a test, a range well above and sing live with a Shure Beta 87A Shure 520DX and which are micro-level suprieure, but for that price it is pleased trsistant and filled out his Czech.
