The T.bone EM 800
Enough said


- How long have you use it?
First use last night. It's almost plug and play these pickups. I have used a couple stro in Overhead battery. Nicke, no need to tamper with the Pramp '. So I pass mircos for toms.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
I see the future, but I t bluff. The most? The sound easy to get.

How do you report qualitprix?
Top Notch.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Without any problem.

The T.bone EM 800
Pair of condenser microphones condenser cardioid thin membrane.
They can mainly be used primarily as a cymbal mics (overhead, hi-hat) and the couple made room stereo.


Pair of micro rather surprising for the price, two condenser microphones to less than 100 euros is nothing.

Used mostly in overhead or stereo pair the result is pretty good. I recorded a concert with a good mastering and after the rendering was well balanced. One of their failure is that they do not descend very low in the spectrum (note that this is a default for use as a stereo pair of overhead but it's perfect).

Their directivity versus frequency is not a feature that is on their side, of course, these pickups are not made to use the voices (of de-stampings appear quickly when the speaker moves his head), but when you use them as a stereo pair prefer to XY pair.
For my current use (small concerts, taking environments, ...) they suit me perfectly.

The black spot is not the microphone itself but the documentation of it. Like many t bone microphones there is no real technical documents can be viewed prior to purchase: sensitivity, frequency response curve, noise, ...

However it all comes in a nice little plastic box that looks pretty solid with two microphones clips (besides it's not always easy to install microphones in their claws, but hey when you see the clamps that pass on their shure SM58 ...)

To compete in the same price range: Superlux (ho hum characteristics of both) and Berhinger (microphones strong but uneven quality depending on the microphone, however the same model)
range over which would be worth: the Oktava and studio projects.

+: Price, value, their sound for the appropriate use
-: Some characteristics (lack of bass, direcivité which varies greatly depending on the frequency, ...), lack a complete technical documentation before buying

The T.bone EM 800
Condenser microphone for overhead or charley.
I put 9 because it is not very nice ... who cares what


For me it is THE big surprise Thomann mics!
For 35 euros it's huge: first there is comes in a hard plastic boiboite year so it's not about to break if you tremballer it.
Second technical point before moving to the sound: the clip: miracle! it's a little boring but to be completely surrounds the microphone and not likely to fall under any circumstances (not like the sc100 that fall from their claws at the slightest of old farts ...)
And finally the sound, fine and precise, you do what you want! I put the hi-hat and it's really great.
It is less "open" the sc100 (hypercardio I thought) and therefore there is less repisse
Not for the price it is a gift, really nice product cheap!
A repeat without hesitation

The T.bone EM 800
Capacitor condenser microphone preference for placement of overhead.
The couple to € 69 in a plastic box, with very well developed claws.


I bought these mics in the hope in some way to test a couple investments so you can work on a stereo space.
In a word rendering is amazing!
They are for the price of a good quality, obviously they are not worth the KM184 has compared them but they are somewhat veiled but take what to the sound without adding too much.
They are transparent, beautiful beautiful severe acute.
I am more surprised by the products of the brand T-Bone.
I admit that their motto is justified, why buy more expensive mics??
I strongly recommend his pickups.
