Brilliant value for money!
02.02.2016
I have to admit, even after reading all the positive reviews I've been pleasantly surprised by this little chap. It comes in a hard plastic case, lined with foam. The plastic feels a little on the cheap side, but should be fine so long as you don't go chucking the case about like a lunatic.

Vocals/speech come through in their entirety, clear and bright. This would work fine for podcasting/commentary's etc, and you get a pretty decent sense of the room you're recording in too, meaning it could do a decent job with a couple of people on one mic. It's also great for recording guitars/instruments as a room mic, where a sense of the space can really make the difference on a recording. I've not tried it for close micing in this situation yet, but I have high hopes.

If you're after a small diaphragm condenser, you can do a lot worse for a lot more cash!

Works ok
28.09.2015
I would recommend this microphone for those who occasionally need to record acoustic instruments. I found it to be a good match for steel string guitar, chords, pluck or soloing. It also does OK percussive instruments.
The sonic character is bright or even brittle, but it will take up lows too if you get close enough.
The signal is nice and strong.

Build quality is OK, but there are sturdier mics out there. Getting it into the holder was a bit of a struggle, and the holder itself is not impressive.

Good value, and well suited for some jobs. If I lost this one, I'd get another.

The t.bone EM 800
Frederick337, 04.08.2015
I bought this microphone on pure speculation as the reviews were good and the price inviting. To say the least I was really surprised with the build quality and the recorded sound on my Tascam 8 track digital recorder. My instruments recorded extremely well, I could not be happier. I tried using it on vocals and it worked out really well in that situation too. I really recommend this mic. to anybody who wants to do decent home recordings.

Cheap but good
Andy345, 16.05.2013
The t.bone EM 800 is a good, clear sounding microphone. Great for drum overheads or mic'ing instruments where you want a clear top end sound.

It's nothing fancy, with no settings on the mic for a pic up pattern.

If I'm honest; there are other Mics on the market that can offer a better quality sound, but these mics are significantly more expensive. If you have a small budget, I'd recommend trying this mic as it produces a good clean sound.

The mic clip (provided) is a rubber circle, that the mic slides into. It feels quite tight, and might be a little difficult to get the mic into at first; but it certainly means the mic is in and won't fall out.

Just don't forget to power it with 48V/PP!
