Great piece of nostalgia and not a bad mic to boot.
Malcolm Emmanuel, 31.10.2015
I didn't expect great things from this mic and bought it as a cheap alternative to an AKG condenser which I normally use for home recording. That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the t.bone. The aesthetics are retro and it looks as good as depicted in the photos. The build quality is surprisingly good, with a heavy, solid feel to it and no signs of corner-cutting in its fabrication. The sound quality was better than I expected and it holds its own against other dynamic mics with similar ranges although I do use it through a tube mic preamp which does make a difference. That said, I've also had it directly plugged to a mic channel on an acoustic guitar amp and it did the job one-man gigs (although a little "poppy"). This mic is only really advisable for use with straight mic stands rather than with boom stands which mean having to twist the head. For anyone looking for a retro looking, cheap and cheerful mic with no professional recording intentions, you could do a lot worse than this.

Good looking thing for that price
Billy B, 28.08.2015
This was a first vintage looking microphone that I owned and I bought it just for the interest: what can you get for that price. At first I was agreeably surprised that mic is packed in solid case and have funny table stand for it. Other thing I noticed that it has a pretty light weight (if we compare it with other mics of that style). And finally about the sound: it is quite OK for that price, but I do not advise to use it in professional work. It is absolutely inappropriate for any medium or larger stage because of its impressive feedback and sensitivity. In small places it is pretty good, but anyway it is worth to save up some money to buy vintage mic produced by more known brands.
