Great mic even for cajon
j_j_er, 11.02.2019
I bought it for Cajon. Since there were no reviews with this setup I was gambling a bit with this buy. I simply set it inside Cajon on the bottom and surprisingly it picks up snare and clapping also. There is also enough bass sound. Minor corrections on the mixer and that is all.

Bumst gut !
fettabrocken72, 01.11.2018
Habe mir das TBone 500 Beta für die Live Gigs meiner Coverband geholt. Ich habe bisher immer mein Shure Beta 91 mitgenommen aber nach nun knapp 8 Jahren fängt der Mini XLR Stecker ein bißchen an zu wackeln und ich brauchte was robustes für "on the Road" ohne ein kleines Vermögen auszugeben.

Das Beta 500 hat einen großen XLR Ausgang (das Beta 91a mitlerweile auch aber kostet viel mehr) und einmal in die Bassdrum gelegt macht es was es soll. Bei unserer Band wird vom Schlagzeug eigentlich nur die BD abgenommen damit es untenrum etwas schiebt. Wir spielen hauptsächlich kleine Locations wie z.B. Hochzeiten.
Das Ding macht genau was es soll, einfach Kabel dran, in die BD legen und gut. Das Beta500 hat auf der Unterseite einen kleinen Schalter mit dem zwischen BD und Sprache/Piano Abnahme geswitcht werden kann. Unser Techniker musste am Mixer alles zurückfahren weil es einen ordentlichen Bass-Boost abgeliefert hat. Die Einstellung Sprache/Piano habe ich nicht getestet.
Die Unterseite hat eine Gummibeschichtung damit es nicht verrutscht und das Beta 500 macht einen schweren und sehr robusten Eindruck.
Fazit : Wer Druck möchte bekommt hier reichlich. Im Studio habe ich noch nicht testen können glaube aber auch dass gute Ergebnisse erzielt werden können.

Muy satisfecho de este descubrimiento
Critico, 01.02.2019
Uso este microfono en directo para bombo en combinación con un dinámico que me refuerce el punch.
La primera vez que lo probé fue en unas pruebas de un directo. Tenía tiempo de sobra, y puse mi Shure Beta91a de siempre. Una vez ajustada la ganancia del 1º y escuchado el resultado, lo sustituí por el t.bone BD 500 Beta con un grato resultado para mi sorpresa.
Evidentemente es un micrófono distinto con sonido diferente, pero para la mezcla en que lo usé funcionaba mucho mejor que el Shure dados sus distintos "colores".

Contras:
La salida XLR va muy dura y se ve un poco endeble.
La base resbala un poco dentro del bombo.

Lo recomiendo!

Mikrofon mě překvapil. Nejprve jsem ho doplňoval mikrofonem Shure Beta 52, ale nakonec jsem zjistil, že to není vůbec třeba a samotný sejme zvuk velkého bubnu perfektně. Jsem velmi spokojen.
