Quality Mic that rivals Shure SM58's!

We purchased two of these vocal mics to use for backing vocals in our band. Our bass player had bought one and after inspecting it and hearing it live and in rehearsals I was impressed. We were on a budget and I have purchased several other Thomann brand items in the past including some microphones (t.bone dc1500 drum mic set) which I have been using live for over 2 years. Needless to say they are great for the price and this mic is no different.

We compared it to the singers Shure sm58, and they both are very similar, to my ear the MB85 has a slightly cleaner sound off the bat. Then with a few tweaks both mics were nearly indistinguishable. The SM58 seemed more mid frequency prone and dull when EQ'D flat. But obviously every instrument needs a little adjustment..the room and acoustics play a role to the sound of course, and the speakers they go through. We used EV SX300'S and this mic sounded/sounds excellent through them just as good as the sm58.

Overall brilliant mic for the price and looks very professional. My only criticism is the plastic case it comes in arrived with one of the underside legs/arches broken..The mic was in perfect condition though. Also it does feel lighter and a little less robust than the sm58, however if you mind your equipment and keep it in its case when transporting it I see no reason why this would not last just as long as the SM58.

Great sound, great quality, great price.

I wish it had switch option

I've been buying some microphones for our public rehershal studio recently, giving a shot to some unexpensive offers here at Thomann. In the end, we decided not to put this mic in the line of our basic equipment because some bands who come to us to play might be confused with the fact this mic doesn't have a switch to turn it off if they don't need it or as a ?panic? button when feedback is happening.

But man, this mic sounds really good!

I've basically decided to keep it as my own vocal mic I carry with me in my guitar bag, and I really like the sound, the feel and the looks. The handling noise is low, feedback resistance is good, the output is pretty hot. I find the sound very suitable for my voice with the mostly flat EQ.

Cheap but very good.

Had spare cash for an order so thought I would try out one as they have good reviews already. Well I can tell you its true what they are saying Its a very good sounding mic in my opinion somewhere between the SM58 and the Beta of the original brand. The con is the handling noise it obviously a bit lively compared to the expensive version, but if used on a stand its fine if you don't kick the stand. The build is fine and seems only a step below the real one. But for the money you get a clear nice sounding mic you wont be afraid to throw in your gig box. Dont get me wrong here, its not as good as the Shure one but It will be a great back up for the real thing or even a spare mic you use when you mad enough to let a singer up on the stage in a pub or club. I will buy another just because they are cheap but very good.

An effective mic for the price!

This is a great mic for the price.
It has one flaw that limits it's use slightly.. however if you work around that it is fine.
The only problem with this mic is that the isolation between the casing and the diaphragm isn't great- which means you get noise as you handle the mic - considerably more than an SM58. A singer holding this mic in their hand wouldn't be ideal.
However - put this in a stand and don't touch it- or use it in the studio and you're happy! Sound quality is good, item is durable and I'd be surprised if you could get better for the cost.

Way better than the "original"!

I used to own a couple of Shure SM58, which is simply the most famous and sold mic on earth. Well, since I bought them I've been struggling with flat sound that I had to "pump" and correct with compressors and tone controls. But the worst thing was the inevitable feedback that cursed any live set! So I decided to buy one of these t.bone MB85: I was totally astonished listening to the crystal clear tones and beautiful sound that came out of this unexpensive mic! No more feedback, no need to pump tones, with almost flat setting of the controls, which means more flexibility with different sources. After the first try, I bought two more, and I suggested it to many friends. A great microphone for any kind of voice!
