The T.bone RETRO III
T.bone T3000 Retro III - Thomann
Large diaphragm studio microphone valve,
148dB max SPL,
Selection cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-eight that are available through a 3-position switch on the front,
2 switches at the rear of the microphone that controls the position of double bass roll-off (-10db) and pad functions,

(Cardioid/omni/figure-8, pad switch, low cut).

includes power supply with connecting cable and case.

Connection cable XLR


After using dynamic microphones for years: a Shure (cheap) and a Sennheiser E 815S (almost swallowing the need to get out a sound) I am with this technology to T. BONE lamp and large membrane is for recording in the studio.

Level look, the beast comes out and takes a max of configurations completely normal. Sosi the Cascade Elroy:

Level sound (vocals), and although there is a vamp! Good! I am not an expert but the sound compared to what I tried before, the day and night!

- No effect, rendering the voice is super good, faithful! It is not nasal, not too acute or too serious but extremely clear, according to this technology (at least as far as I know:). The rendering is somewhat true, honest!

- For a preamp modeling, there is the nirvana without effort!


In short, given the price paid (89 € like new with the XLR cable) much cheaper than nine thotho without the cable, and given the possible settings and the quality achieved, even at a price of € 125 it seems to me worth it!

So a purchase without regret, and finally a real microphone to sing!
