A studio to go

The SC 420 USB Silver Set is a complete and easy-to-use package aimed at budding audio engineers, home-studio enthusiasts, and podcasters alike. A simple USB connection and your recording voice are all you will require to get started! It also features a useful headphone output for zero-latency monitoring. A foam pop filter is also included to guard against plosives, as are a suspended shock mount (to minimise vibrations and handling noises) and a round table stand. The whole package is very attractively priced, providing a professional-grade audio recording solution for the many.

Rich sound

Large-diaphragm microphones such as the SC 420 USB are valued for their high sensitivity and accurate rendition. In addition, their proximity effect is more pronounced than that of small-capsule mics – in other words, the closer you are to the microphone when speaking or singing, the warmer your voice will become. The same effect will apply to other sound sources such as guitars and pianos. Large-diaphragm microphones are extremely versatile, and every studio should have at least one. Podcasters will also appreciate the richness and “radiophonic” quality of their sound.

Plug & play

The SC 420 USB eliminates the need for an audio interface, preamp, and all associated cables – which is ideal if you’re impatient to get started, or on the road a lot. Thanks to its plug & play functionality, the microphone works out of the box with both Windows and Mac operating systems without needing to install any drivers. The integrated headphone output allows you to directly monitor the input signal without any latency. The SC 420 USB is primarily aimed at podcasters and singers who want to record in a home-studio environment, which is why the package includes a pop filter, a table stand, and a shock mount.

About the t.bone

Since 1994, the t.bone has been one of Thomann’s in-house brands, and its name can be found on devices such as headphones, wireless systems, in-ear equipment, and various microphones and matching accessories. “the t.bone” products are made exclusively by renowned companies who also manufacture products for other well-known brands. This provides a clear advantage: Brand-quality products at very reasonable prices. And word gets around: One in seven Thomann customers has already bought at least one product from the t.bone.

A saviour in many situations

The frequency response of the SC 420 USB features a slight bump at around 10 kHz, adding a subtle yet recognizable shine to the voice that is often found in professional recordings. In addition, the SC 420 USB has a cardioid polar pattern, which effectively attenuates unwanted sounds and interference from its back and sides. Room and ambient noises are thus kept to a minimum, even if the home studio does not have the proper acoustic treatment.

Top Produkt für den Preis
freakyusx, 15.11.2020
Ich muss sagen, für den Preis, ist das Mikrofon top!

Generelles:
Das Mikrofon ist für den Preis echt gut verarbeitet und wirkt auch sehr hochwertig. Muss aber dazu erwähnen, das es leichter ist, als man es sich denkt.

Zubehör:
Das Zubehör ist vorallem für den Preis sehr umfangreich. Es wirkt hochwertig, aber der Popschutz könnte etwas überarbeitet werden, da der gerne mal wegknickt am Gelenk.

Sound:
Ich hab jetzt nicht so viele Erfahrung mit Mikrofone machen können, aber andere Freunde und Kollegen fand den Klang Positiv. Er klingt warm und klar.

Zusammenfassung:
Wer für wenig Geld ein Mikrofon sucht, oder mit Streamen o.ä. anfangen will, und kein/kaum Geld hat, ist mit dem Mikrofon sehr gut geholfen.

Preis-Leistung genial
Michael459, 15.12.2020
Ich bin absolut überzeugt von diesem Mikro. Im Stream ist meine Stimme klar und voll, auch der Klang der Akustik-Gitarre wird sehr gut im Stream übertragen. Die Kopfhörer, die ich am Mikrofon einstecken kann, haben keinerlei Störgeräusche oder Rauschen. Überragend, was man hier für knapp 60 Euros bekommt. Danke!
