The best vocal microphone ever!

I have been involved in sound-engineering, both live and recording for about 50 years. I am not a professional so have always worked on tight budgets. These days, I have a massive microphone collection which includes dozens of examples of mics from all the major manufacturers. I have searched endlessly in this time to find an affordable vocal mic with a high performance - and I have now found it! In fact I have found about 20 of them - all the same - all Thomann MB78 Betas!

In my opinion, the MB78 Beta is the best vocal mic available at anything like this price. OK, what's so good about it?

Firstly, the sound quality. Clean, sweet top end without the hard edge upper-mid boost that so many dynamic vocal mics deliver. I have never had any significant feedback problems with these mics in live work (though to be fair, I rarely work in an environment that needs massive volume). I have never tried an A/B test with a "famous" mic to see which will give the highest volume without feedback but my impression is that these would match any dynamic mic for feedback-free gain. This is probably due to a pretty flat frequency response. These mics certainly extend at the top end beyond the range of a dynamic mic.

I have used the mics for recording close-mic vocals and the results have been flawless.

Another thing I like about these mics is their almost zero handling noise. The shock protection is excellent and much better than any comparable mic I have ever used. A great bonus when performers want to hand-hold.

Low end is brilliantly curtailed with the on-board high-pass filter. I always use this switched in for close vocal work. This makes the mic almost pop-free. Once or twice, I have had to resort to using a foam pop-filter for particularly breathy performers but most of the time this is totally unnecessary.

These mics are pretty tough too. OK, I look after my stuff but I have had some of these mics for getting on for a decade and they still look as good as new.

They look pretty good too!

The verdict? Unless you want to pay three, four or even five times the price, you won't get much more for your money. These mics are brilliant! Thomann - please keep these in stock and hold the price!!

Outstanding mic

I have used this microphone in quite a few situations now and I am extremely happy with the results.
This microphone really shines on vocals. It has fast become one of the most reliable mics in my tool box. For the price this can't be beat. It's a work horse. I will be ordering more of these soon.

I bought three of these for my church. They really come in handy for drum overheads or miking violins and guitars. They pick up a good detailed sound at a greater distance than, say, a dynamic mic like a SM58, and we have no feedback that can't be tamed by a little work with the parametric mid on the relevant desk channel. Good for lectern-mounted speech too.

There are probably better-sounding mics available for recording - I wouldn't know, I'm not very experienced - maybe others are better for handling noise - but for indoor, day-to-day PA work I don't know why anyone would pay more for a general-purpose condenser mic.

I purchased this Mic as my first condenser mic. I was initially worried as I had never used phantom power before.

But this was much easier to use than expected.

The microphone was not too expensive, i received it a few days after I ordered it.

It came in a sturdy looking plastic case.

Upon opening it, I found the mic inside. The case was also padded inside, the mic came with a clip to allow me to attach this to a stand.

The mic itself is made of metal, giving it a reliably strong feeling.

I set the mic up and connected it in to my mixer with the idea of testing the mic.

I was delightfully surprised by the difference in sound from this mic to my usual dynamic mic's I had been using previously.

My vocals (and also my guitar) sound crisp and clear. The recordings I can now make are of a high quality thanks to this mic

I recommend this mic to anyone looking to record vocals. It is very affordable and it is definitely worth the price !

Excellent Versatile Mic. Superb value

I selected this after visiting Thomann's amaziing shop at Burgebrach (If you are ever in that part of Germany pay them a visit, it is quite astounding). They have a mic room where one can try about 15 different vocal mics. The MB78 seemed by far the most natural at its price, or indeed several multiples of that price.

Have subsequently bought about 10 for various purposes. I find them ideal for speech and singers at 15 - 30 cm. Much more open and natural sound than low cost dynamics (I greatly prefer it to SM58's). The condenser capsule is quite small ( about 15 mm dia) but held in a robust windshield so it has the clarity of a small diameter condenser whilst being pretty immune to breath and handling noise.

Had a small problem with one that had a low background noise, but Thomann exchanged this immediately.
