Certainly no Shure thing
Smooooth, 26.06.2017
Hefty in the hand if not in the ears. The case provided is quaint, and the cable reliable. Something nearer to an SM57 than a 58, though I use 'near' liberally. Certainly more liberally than one should use these in the studio. Now, for the price, they are fantastic ? but without that qualifier three stars at best. No good on an amp, instead I personally use these as a secondary mic for acoustic guitars. They do however have a peculiar proficiency when up close on a double bass, so if one can't afford a specialised clip-on for their upright perhaps these are worth a try. Solid build, in any case, so not likely to need replacement any time soon.

Probably stick with the MB 85
drdolittle, 15.12.2015
I have a couple of mics from Thomann - this one I bought as a "give to the pubic" mic for anyone who wants to get up an sing a number at an acoustic session. The problem I have with it is that it carries over a lot of "mic handling noise" particular if your crooner is wearing rings. Also the overall output sound character is a bit on the tinny side. For the money it does what I want and I don't have to stress if it gets dropped or swung around- but for an extra ¤5 you get a lot more performance if you go up to the MB 85 in my opinion.

Just perfect
Ottavio, 30.01.2018
For a microphone this cheap I was actually surprised by the quality.

Little bit sensitive to feedback but just settle in the right position and the problem is solved.

Definitely Recommended.

Best value for money
Dario1289, 26.05.2016
How great is this mike. I can't believe how they could reach such a high quality at such a small price.

It's true cardiod, so you can use it pointing at your signal source withount risking to get unwanted noise. It is very effective against feedback. It is very usefule for isolating the right source and there's no larsen at all.

The tone is very warm, it sometimes seems to be a condeser mike, being able to get all nuances. Quite crisp and clesar oh highs, while quite definite in the lows. Honestly I'm surpised of this quality, at such a low price. I also have a t bone MB85 Beta, which is the best seller for t bone, and I think there is no gap between the two. Even this MB55 is bttere for larsen, while mantaining a good quality.

Just be careful not to loose the green ring, which is plastic ring around the mike. I've bought four mics, and I have lost all 4 rings.

Best feature of this mic is its solidity. It is really rosk solid. I use it for voice, hi hat, snare, without havinh any problem.

It just has a ON/OFF switch and that is all.

It's a winner.
