This is a large diaphragm studio condenser microphone, albeit a small one. If you are used to using dynamic microphones for recording you will instantly notice the improvement - the crystal clarity that a large diaphragm condenser gives in comparison.
This is also a very cheap large diaphragm studio condenser microphone. In my experience, normally that cheapness would be reflected in the quality of the built-in pre-amp. I expected a relatively high noise floor - background hiss with the gain turned up to record quiet sources. I have to report it's not there.
According to the included specification sheet, this microphone has a better noise performance than my Audio Technica AT4033. It would be a complex process for me to actually measure if that is actually true, but in using the two side by side I have no reason to believe that the performance is worse.
I have used this mic to record vocals and acoustic guitar, both of which it does very well. It doesn't have a built-in pad, so I wouldn't use it for anything loud like horns. The low-cut switch is internal and requires unscrewing the body - but this is only required for close mic-ing, and these mics are best used with a bit of distance between source and mic (with a pop-screen for vocals).
The included shock mount is a necessity for this type of microphone, and the one supplied does the job quite adequately (considering you could spend the same money for just a shock mount on its own).
If you haven't yet recorded with a large diaphragm condenser, then get yourself one of these. Just remember though, the money you save on buying this (rather than a more expensive model) will have to be spent on acoustic screening once having a decent mic shows up how bad your room acoustics really are. But you'd have to do that if you spent more on a mic.

Price quality.

It is obvious that with this microphone we not top quality, because we are talking about a not very expensive microphone, a reasonable price, normal that we do not have top quality. But seeing the price for the microphone is very good! With a good sound card, we can make a good quality. Captures well the voice, I left quite clear if we have a good acoustics as well. I hope to buy, not disappointed me!

superb mic for the money

The t.bone SC400 is an amazing mic for this price and we've been very impressed by the sound quality. I'm no mic expert but after using a shure for studio vocal recording for a couple of years, the t.bone has transformed the sound of our singers. I was expecting improved recordings but didn't expect the difference this mic made: much warmer and more rounded quality. I've been using it for a couple of years now and it seems extremely robust (although it never leaves the studio so it doesn't have a hard life.) And there's even something about the classic "BBC" appearance of the mic in it's anti-vibration sling that seems to bring out better performances: singers seem to have a sense that they need to do justice to what looks like a very professional piece of equipment. (I could be imagining that of course but psychology in the studio is important.)
Delivery was extremely quick (although Thomann's delivery is always impressive in my experience).

A good microphone, good quality for the price. I use it mainly for vocals in the studio but have used it for a trombone and drum overhead in the past with good results. The only issue I have had with it is the elastic in the suspension cage broke after some fairly light studio use. But it was easily fixed. The sound is good for the amateur studio recording I do. I would recommend it.

OVERALL OPINION

Very good purchase, bought this for my home studio, no regrets at all until now
I use it with my Focusrite (Nice Pre-amps, and phantom power required to use this Mic.)

Sound:
For voice and acoustic guitars this really is the best microphone! (You need to EQ the sound for best results)
I specially like this Mic for voice dunno why but i think this mic sounds better for deeper voices or male voices. Maybe personal taste.
I have managed to record my guitar amp (ENGL Screamer) It did the job very well at low volumes. Dunno how it will behave in high volume situations.

I recommend it to any beginner, amateur or even a pro as a spare mic.
I would buy it again
