Overall great mic for starters
Soma328, 28.03.2018
I bought this mic 2 years ago in a bundle, I use it at home, for recording vocals, guitar, bass, flute and other instruments, also for making youtube videos and streaming on twitch. I really like the warm sound it gives to my voice. The large condenser capsule fits really nice for vocals, and stringed instruments.

It`s really cheap. You get exactly what you need for starting a youtube channel or a podcast or if you want to get in music production.
The build quality is excellent. It`s made out of a durable aluminium, the capsule is protected by a strong aluminium mesh. It fell once or twice but it survived perfectly without any damage in the electronics or on the outside.
It`s an USB microphone, plug and play, so no drivers needed, but you can install ASIO drivers for low-latency monitoring.
I use it in Audition and Ableton live, it simply works.
I really like the sound it produces, and it looks and feels professional.

There is a little bit of hissing going on, but i think it`s the drawback of the condenser mics overall not just this model. You can easily remove the noise by recording a few seconds of silence, and then running a noise reduction in Audition or even in a free program called Audacity. If you plan on recording multiple instrumens and vocals, you could remove the hissing in an equalizer, just turn down the 50-60Hz frequency where the hissing is going on.

Overall I really like this mic, it`s the best for this price!

Fabulous microphone!
Allan Shearer, 14.02.2021
So far, I have bought 2 of these ... and I am about to buy a 3rd only because my friend loved it so much that he is taking my 2nd mic, so, I need to replace it.
SOLIDLY built ... nice and weighty ... excellent 'feel quality'. Does NOT feel cheap. But what is most important, of course, is the sound quality - and it is TOP quality!
We use these mics for doing video production, singing/recording, and video-conferencing. Everyone who hears what we produce is amazed at this mic - and cannot believe that it costs so little!
For our needs ... we don't need an 'expensive' mic, but, we are DELIGHTED with something like this that is both WELL built AND low-price.
I'm now off to buy my 3rd!! :)

Brilliant - for the price it can not be beat
DaMusicMan, 21.05.2020
I was looking to record some acoustic guitar- tried the cassette tape but, the quality in the finished recording not the best- decided to use the computer but needed a good mic- I researched the mic's available in a particular price range- after reading the specs of a handful, I decided this t-bone SC440 USB would be the perfect fit- I have order from Thomann numerous times so was not surprised the about the quickness of the order- The mic itself is very impressive - reminds me of all the up market studio mic's I have used in the past- Depending on the software program, it is really a simple plug and play mic. It did take a few practice takes to get the levels I was happy with regarding picking up the acoustic guitar, the vocals the same, BUT, the end result was exactly what I was hoping for- Two thumbs up to Thomann for a brilliant piece of kit- by the way, one will never go wrong with the description on the web site- Thanks

With low budget and passion to sing - this was a good beginner microphone. But quality-wise not very good,
