The T.bone DC4000
Battery kit for microphones.

The dynamic microphones have a good record.
The bass drum microphone has a good record but his response curve a little too pat in the 7000 Hz.
Condenser microphones are dsolant! They soufler tendencies and their response curve of accentuates frequencies not interressente. Not to mention the frequent phases problems. A condenser microphone 100 euro is far better!

Plastic frames are not very sturdy (I have one that has broken and of course unchangeable.


After one year of home-studio and live use I finally found that there is a lot of faults ... but for the price the ... what more?
No One! so it's all good!

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

The T.bone DC4000
1 BD25 bass drum mic
4 CD56 micro snare / tom
2 EM81 overhead


Use for 6 months ... quite skeptical at first considering its price but pleasantly surprised by the report.
Use a battery with a first sound system Yamaha DX + Subwoofer => good record.
The bass drum mic picks up well and made very good punch with the subwoofer output
Microphones snare and toms with a fairly decent neutral sound ... some small EQ settings to do to get a good sound
Effective enough overhead

Very good quality / price ratio ... kit complete drum sound for 200 € instead of 600 € for standarts brands.

The T.bone DC4000
Micro Battery Kit (4 CD-56BETA, a BD-2 25BETA and EM-81)
they are all super cardioid, room mics are electret and requires phantom power
you will have noticed the similarities with the names of the kit shure, they are immitis and the price is extremely aggressive. the kit which I shall notice is one that came with the clamps beyerdynamic they are very well made and are universal (you have a maximum margin of 35 mm between the two clips)
mics come with adptateurs for microphone stands which is not specified in the description of thomann.


I use this kit to my battery for 5 months and have served for a concert.
They behaved very well coupled to a DDX3216 Berhinger, compressors, gates and egualisation settings on each track is a real plus giving high accuracy in the mix for a small fee (450 euros for microphones with cables and feet on thomann and 700 euros for the table)

qualities of the kit:

versatility can record a bass amp or a cons-low with the bass drum microphones which can also collect a very high pressure
the overhead can be used for any acoustic instrument or hearts.
microphones toms / snare can be used to replace a real knife-Swiss sm57 for recording

design when I first opened the briefcase I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of design, similar to micro professional ties to Tom are simple, accurate and convenient to UTIs. In addition, all the threads seem strong and résistereont probably the test of time. (This is not the material the layer of varnish disappears after a week at that price, it was logical to doubt, fortunately it does nothing)
Finally the microphones were all good frequency response and volume

try to find the price cheaper for a quality at least as good at the moment I think in europe at least that's impossible.
This kit seems perfect start in the complex area of ​​the recording drum.
Unfortunately I did not compare this kit with its model shure it is probably worse but I think the difference in price is not justified
for people to finance or limited experience you can darken, T.bone was for me as a dubious mark in the forums talking about little but the quality is well after trial appointment

The T.bone DC4000
This is a pack for a small battery. Over two capacitors Heads 4 dynamic mics Toms / Snare Bass Drum microphones A


I use them for 3 months ... I begin by taking the last three months.
They are connected to an Alesis Multimix 16 FireWire, and the whole is very homogeneous.

What I like is the quality for the price ... less than € 1000 for a system of comprehensive and sound recording of a quality that amazed me well. well I am far from a pro but I made a few listens to catch in a real studio and engineer, told me frankly that the quality was not bad. for the price.

What I like least is that it may be lack of another microphone to make a decision below the snare ... I was told that the kick drum mic was missing some fishing, but I honestly though it suits me!

Of course I do it again this choice.
