    What type of microphone? Static transistor.
    What technology? Capacitor.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    Good j'viens just received it, so I had a few hours to test it on acoustic guitars and voices. First impression: amazed !!! This mic sounds more than good, considering the price j'pense that there is not even hesitate. Well I've never tested neumann for example, but I find the sound of this micro ultra natural. I made the sound of a rock band in early with an electro-harmonix at 300 €, not j'trouve bluntly worse sound. Good certe a little more heat as people say, but it removes the natural side of her I think. While on the transplanted grat amps, but I find shit on vocals.

    So result is better save € 250 and get a € 58 sc400 in toto!

    Really 10/10 because at this price j'pense we can not do better.

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

    OVERALL OPINION

    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.

    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).

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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    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).

    Large diaphragm condenser microphone.

    OVERALL OPINION

    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.

    Micro versatile type wide diaphragm condenser (100Hz low cut filter)

    OVERALL OPINION

    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

    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 ;))

    Good buy!

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

    OVERALL OPINION

    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......

  • Effective on acoustic guitar

    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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    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)

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

    3) it is pretty well finished, a nice black and srieux with srigraphies dores discrtes which are not cheap.
    more beautiful than the picture (of aillor it looks better from the front).
    nice!

    4) it comes complete in a small cardboard box containing the microphone, his imitation leather cover, an adapter nut and suspension.

    5) the suspension is good (we will use if it is solid). its gains are elastic tissue. this is very well. some brands do not and that's unfortunate. soon as the qd qt elastic micro earth not fall!
    however the suspension is adjustable every type of microphone (type U87), handy if you have multiple mics like me, some without suspension ... but that with this small mic ... is a well ... but if you pull on the wire (or if your cable is very very heavy!) Gently slide the microphone!
    That said, we do not care. if you're scared, you put a small black elastic around the microphone above the suspension, as a safeguard!

    5) for now and for the price, overall good impression.

    OVERALL OPINION

    He walks.
    I vrifi.
    No problem.
    Some bass and treble and mdiums! ...
    tonnament and a good level of output ...
    on the ridges violent voice is a little "hard" on an acoustic guitar, mandolin or dulcimer, trs is amazing, better than other much more expensive stuff! ...
    it is cardioid only, no pad or low cut. in fact it home in a low cut 6db of 100 hz.

    Now, given the conditions under which branch I'll wait I rode it, he breathes and I really test it before saying sth ;-)

    and then, just something ... a static is used with a windscreen.
    before saying a microphone has a little hiss or priest, vrifions it is used with a real antipop two sails.
    you never know ...

    on this, more!

    ... APRS few hours, I post this notice in the thread ddi comparison to sc 300:

    I did a comparison test trs home studio with microphones of comparable prices now (not quite ... but say "cheap").

    the sc400 59 euros, included suspension
    the Oktava mk319, 139 euros excluding suspension
    and rode NT2 150-200 euros okaz qd was bcp bowl! suspension but understood.

    config home stud: Layla 20 bit, mx 8000 Behri to have all the same prampli (uncorrected), all facing in one take me voice speaks, sings, whispers, coughs ... 40 cm without antipop, mac not isolated (cabin insulation open), cubase, BM15A is costing right.

    rsultats:
    All the same output level prs little (maybe a little less Oktava).

    t-bone quality of trs thundering weaker but serious (there cutting down a 100 hz 6db in original), more than the Oktava dtaill in the treble, no staining particulire , no breath, may be lacking a little character, supporting the vicinity less than the other two without antipop (Bloum in plosives lgres same low, but unless a Oktava bcp MK012! ...).
    it will still see qd rod.

    Oktava not sharp, it looks like a dynamic (almost), no breath (or some trs), very nice low, seems the most natural of the three, no sound of a tube as is often done with this microphone a little mdium proximity in the rendering, but nice

    rode, the more sensitive, many dtails in the high but comes down a little lower than the same qd t-bone, very pleasant and flattering but transplanted bcp noise studio (and seems a low blow by itself, too), gives an effect of proximity organic but seems less natural than the Oktava (and is, despite what they say, more acute than the Chinese), microphone with its sensitivity more important is a first prize in the range "neumann and company" as the top of the range below

    in total, one that has the least dfauts apparent is the t-bone. for its price it is awesome and it is happening everywhere. it is less vivid and less nanmoins dtaill a rode, but rode a little breath and "dtail" may be a handicap (seems as if it has disappeared from the Deutsche licatement heating and in a pice dshumidifie!). bcp is more all terrain than Oktava, but the Oktava dgage a natural feeling pretty impressive if you're looking for high fidlit (up quite a bit 8khz taking) or enough cevante if we try to give an impression of "modern studio quality"!

    plain: I put the rode on a soft voice, which seeks its sduire organicit dtail and loaded in a mix but not on an acoustic guitar,

    I put the t-bone on an acoustic guitar in the plaant well and a voice that wants dtail (which kind of serious too) in a mix o his breath and lack of sensitivity to noise home-stud is more, the tone color of t-bone is somewhat midway between the other two (and more lurks close)

    I put the Oktava qd I want the 40 cm or natural sound coldplay rock / tom waits in proximity with a nice low, I sometimes tinker the qualo qd must if I want to give the "pep".

    honntement they are complementary and trs for correct prices drisoires.
    we have so spoken ill of Chinese that I am pleasantly surprised by this t-bone 400 francs, cover and hanger included. (That said, I wonder if it is not more than a static one lectret true ... how you will age-NAME).
    I tend prfrer nanmoins the rode (but has inconvnients) or the Oktava (but it has gaps) that are more "marqus" but I have to r listens and lets the brid is dbrider a little!

    That said, the diffrences between them are subtle and it is impossible to imagine in a quality three times that price is only 10 years.

    Voili!

    the druid.

    ps: I have just taken the instrument string guitars, with the t-bone.
    it's really not bad at all on this one l (l has just buried the issue Oktava "natural").

    résumé in the end, and compared to the price more expensive stuff, it's really not bad at all! ...
    ;-)
