The T.bone RM700Published on 01/12/12 at 20:38
This is a ribbon mic, which is a dynamic microphone that records with a figure 8 pattern. Ribbon mics were all the rage in the '40s for public performance, but in today's rough and tumble world, I'd recommend keeping this type of microphone for studio use only, as the ribbon is very fragile and would be burned up with if phantom power were accidentally switched on.

The Tbone RM700 has its own XLR cable attached to the mic and no on or off switch. When not in use, it should be stored upright in its case.

OVERALL OPINION


Ribbon mics record using a different kind of technology than typical dynamic or condenser microphones. For someone looking for a vintage or unique kind of sound, a ribbon mic can sound great on vocals, but the user will have to deal with the figure 8 pattern. I used this mic on one album and was really satisfied with the results because we recorded the vocals in a good sounding room, which this microphone only emphasized since it has a bipolar recording pattern.

That being said, this mic is not fit for all occasions and isn't very versatile; although I've heard people miking drums and guitar cabs with ribbon mics, I wouldn't recommend it because too much moving air can destroy the ribbon. A good pop-filter is a must when using this microphone.

I really liked mine, but in spite of being careful, one day someone accidentally turned on the phantom power and burned up the ribbon inside the microphone. I never bothered to replace it, because even though it sounded and looked cool, it wasn't really versatile enough for me to use in very many situations. I doubt I'll ever buy another ribbon microphone again, but have to say that TBone did produce a decent product in the line of this mic.

DO NOT BE ABOUT IT

Ribbon microphone, passive, directivity 8.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a few weeks. I bought it because I wanted to familiarize myself with this type of microphone for not too expensive.
Conclusion: This is very typical. Not "transparent". So it can be quite difficult to use the microphone as a single when shooting. But additional microphone is absolutely great! on an electric guitar amp to complement a SM57 it's great, I finally found the natural sound of my amp !!!
On toms you take everything down in a very musical way!
On an acoustic guitar for the mid-side is great ... same with my Dobro and generally anything that has to sound natural ...
In short, I do not divide them.......

In short, I do not divide them. For the price it's amazing that I won as my catch his acoustic! it happens a lot of EQ to take down the tape is mounted to the attack is mounted his usual static or dynamic ... with a natural sound super.
At that price: go for it!

Everything has been said about the characteristics.
1 bag + 1 wooden box + 1 + 1 clip suspended micro = correct at this price it can not refuse!

OVERALL OPINION

I used a lot lately in recording electric guitar.
I love the sound color. It has many serious, perhaps too much. To compensate I deviate a little HP (30cm) and I cut the bass amp.
I find it more fun than the inevitable SM57 I am tired of his force to be heard on all prods. It is also softer than the other best-selling the E609 category.

Very good value for money.

INFO ON UPGRADE LUNDAHL LL2912
A friend has two RM700 on one of them we changed the transformer balancing a Lundahl LL2912, the rolls of ribbon mic transformer. After some tests ears wide open it seems that it does not improve the sound quality of the microphone. Damage, a myth collapses. I rallongerais this notice once we have pushed a little testing.

Rather very nice

Ribbon mic, ribbon type short, Figure 8. We can not do much with this type of technology except to make it active. This is exactly the same as the Cascade Fathead, the Nady RSM4 and other references made originally by the factory Alcron.

OVERALL OPINION

Received today. Tried it on guitar amps, vocals, acoustic guitar. In three cases, it is much more natural than any dynamic mic with a rounded back that intriqèque typed vintage sound very pleasant. Like all microphones are accurate, it is sensitive to placement. Advantage: The microphone can adapt to many situations and can be used as placement or EQ technical choice in the decision. Disadvantage: if you move, you lose the selected......

Anyway it sounds, it's cheap, it comes in metal suitcase and wooden box, but this is obviously not the absolute micro, which in any case does not exist, the recall.
