S@HDadRecs's review"A great mic that does it job well"

The T.bone SCT800
The folks over at T-Bone have truly provided users with the ability to get some awesome sound at a fraction of the cost. I'm going to go ahead and show all my cards and fully disclose that I am not a fan of tube microphones. This microphone was gift to me and I was unaware at the time that I was admiring it that my wife would purchase it for me. Long story short, I ended up loving the mic. I've recorded so many vocals with it and it holds up just as strong as the day that I got it.

With me doing more recordings of spoken word and soul/jazzy singers, this mic is perfect. There is, I must say, a bit of noise that, if you don't have an interface with good A/D converters, could cause you some troubles during a session. Which is why I recommend springing for a good converter to compliment this microphone. I can personally attest to the SPL Crimson. It's amazing in combination with home studio mics like the SCT 800.

Comparing it to the Sennsheimer MK4 that is my go to budget microphone, the SCT holds stronger than some would like to give it credit for. It doesn't have as much upper frequency sheen as the MK4, but it still holds strong.

The cons of tube mics are always that you have to have tube management. But knowing this, aside from a bit of noise, I give this mic 4 out of 5 home studio stars.:bravo:

Eynkel's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Yeah, even the Chinese ..."

The T.bone SCT800
Tube microphone made in PRC.
Large membrane.


We'll go directly to the point: The sound.

My basis for comparison in this technology are the Neumann U67 and Gyraf G7.

Obviously we are far.
The only advantage of this microphone is the mechanical aspect.

The lamp is interchangeable, and that is, we must change it.
The problem is that the output transformer must ALSO be changed.
The capsule should also be changed if you want to avoid too sharp sound Chinese.

So if we add everything we need to add about 250 € for a set that begins to get fit.

However, the supply is made, and the 7-pin cable is of good quality.

The quality / price ratio is okay if you do not mention ethics (small Chinese working for us please, to allow the North Pole melt faster ... ;))

Do not believe that we can achieve the high end with this microphone, but it is a good first step into the world of lamps to learn to tweak the pickups.

I will not buy this microphone as if I am in possession of a soldering iron and if I used is.

Stjames2305's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good for punchy rock voice"

The T.bone SCT800
Taking voice and guitar or crystal clear sounds.


All original this microphone is perfect for treble voices very limited rock a little nose and the guitar sounds very crystalline, slightly a little dull a little eq. and in the end it is not bad at all but cash well "punchy" voice without acute too aggressive with a price that is really reasonable for a tube microphone.

moustick's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Bad!"

see thomann site features!


So I ordered this mic because of audiofanzine there is an incredible number of home studio owners who buy these microphones famous German retailer Thomann, and say that the greater good! I had already bought a sc400 but more than anything else to change ...
So I'm tempted by the latter, the sct 800, and I must admit that I am disappointed ... I'll probably change (change of the capsule and lamp plus some condos etc ...) but the state is a rather average microphone!
If someone is looking to buy a quality microphone to make everything go your way, there are probably way to find better for the same price ...
