FP User's review

It comes in a big case including puwer suply, microphone cable , power cable stand adaptor, the shock mount is optional I payd 60 euro for it wich is a steep price.

300 euro


Very nice sounding studio condenser microphone, very sensitive picks op very much it can be an advantage or a disadvantage, depending on your stdio environement. I has a goldplated membrane, low noise.

plug it in your mixer or multitracker and sing, rap whatetver...

still works, but it is sensitive so you should handle it with care

I got it for cheap so that's why I love it I got a good studio quality mic for 300 euro, it isn't a neumann but stil does it's job

Monsieur-v35's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good microphone"

Rhodes NTK for all acquisitions of sound: voice choirs, saxes, tubas. Always used with a pre-amp SPL GoldMike


Used for 9 years now and it holds up over time. I have not tried to compare because it suited me perfectly for what I needed. The spectrum is present ... Small worries at the "p" "t" "s" is sensitive membrane despite the presence of a windshield in front of the cell. I usually put a low-cut, and the case is settled and a deesser with some very bright voice. Micro short upper mid-range for a good price.

Microphone for home to take his rap voice. For specifications, see the reviews.


I bought a few hours ago and I've done a lot of struggling with.

I used Shure SM 58 and SM 57, then long been a Rode NT 1000.

Let us immediately: I have not taken any snaps in buying this microphone.

Compared to NT 1000, we note, is above all the virtual absence of background noise. The report noise / sound recorded is significantly better than the NT 1000. The NTK is also more balanced frequencies.

I did not like the sound high mid / treble NT 1000, so unpleasant bump my voice has a lot of treble components. Nothing like here, the base is more pleasant before working frequencies.

on the other hand, do not expect miracles! I immediately said that I only use the preamp of my soundcard (EMU 1820 M), which probably plays a role.

Say that I expected the heat, and a more open, or it is not really the case. Not a huge difference compared to NT1000, nor fidelity, nor heat, nor clarity. For now I'm a little disappointed.

I will change this notice after acquiring a preamp / compressor, which I hope will reveal the (alleged?) Heat lamp.

First edict after a few hours. As I read on sites in English, the sound is "tenuous". He looks a little tight.

At low, not much more than the NT1000, you really get close to the microphone to enjoy.

Micro lamp ... can do everything well


- How long have you use it?
Rarely used (for some tests and taken miunutes acoustic guitar)

- What is so special that you like most and least?
RAS system except screwing the suspension not super convenient but ...

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Studio project and T-bone lamp

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Very good: the sound and build quality (when I remember my T-bone that was oxidized in a few months!)

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes without hesitation. I will have to sell mine because I'm not zic pendnat months and I need money. Considering the price, I only see him and especially not Chinese, never in my case (for reasons of manufacturing quality and disparity (Russian Roulette) ..

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

Micro lights, I use the voice for a rap and prempli Class A, c is impeccable ..


I have the last 6 months and what I like is the quality of decision-voice, c of that you need a good preamp. j've tried other mics like Neumann U 87 (rode into the comparison, I find even the same nivo for male voice and the rap, neumann may be more versatile), Audio Technica 4033 (although I find the rode best).
In terms of value, can not invetir over 300 euros, I think if I wasn t come across a good OCCAZ 'J will certainly fell for a studio projects tb1.

galinou, français en belgique :)'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Indeed, the characteristics of this microphone are harsh environment, I have ordered from Thonan, delivered with his briefcase and shockwave suspension for less than 600


The sound is inaudible and the sensitivity excelente, the sound is warm (light) and trsdfini, (a little extreme in the 5 and 12 kHz) only regret not switch to the microphone as the NT2

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

This micro possde TRS CHARACTERISTICS good, especially in terms of background noise (almost imperceptible, which is rare Surun micro lamp) and distortion, because cash under enormous pressure (drums percussion) without saturating.
RAS at this level l.


I bought it in January 2003, APRS've tried a weekend. I read trs content, it's a clear trs, Dfine and brilliant, but never aggressive. I use it on voice / percussions / acoustic guitar and it sounds good trs. I recommend quiquonque for this type of use. The only problem until it is supplied with carrying case and suspension, and that is expensive (€ 130) it is also heavy and cumbersome with the power supply (I deprecated for use nomadic). That said, it n (trs is not sensitive to noise vibration. I pay € 610.
