Great piece of nostalgia and not a bad mic to boot.
Malcolm Emmanuel, 31.10.2015
I didn't expect great things from this mic and bought it as a cheap alternative to an AKG condenser which I normally use for home recording. That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the t.bone. The aesthetics are retro and it looks as good as depicted in the photos. The build quality is surprisingly good, with a heavy, solid feel to it and no signs of corner-cutting in its fabrication. The sound quality was better than I expected and it holds its own against other dynamic mics with similar ranges although I do use it through a tube mic preamp which does make a difference. That said, I've also had it directly plugged to a mic channel on an acoustic guitar amp and it did the job one-man gigs (although a little "poppy"). This mic is only really advisable for use with straight mic stands rather than with boom stands which mean having to twist the head. For anyone looking for a retro looking, cheap and cheerful mic with no professional recording intentions, you could do a lot worse than this.

Good looking thing for that price
Billy B, 28.08.2015
This was a first vintage looking microphone that I owned and I bought it just for the interest: what can you get for that price. At first I was agreeably surprised that mic is packed in solid case and have funny table stand for it. Other thing I noticed that it has a pretty light weight (if we compare it with other mics of that style). And finally about the sound: it is quite OK for that price, but I do not advise to use it in professional work. It is absolutely inappropriate for any medium or larger stage because of its impressive feedback and sensitivity. In small places it is pretty good, but anyway it is worth to save up some money to buy vintage mic produced by more known brands.

Not just for fun!
24.10.2014
I bought this for a school musical. You guest it right, somebody was playing the part of Elvis. You can't do Elvis without the Elvis-microphone. This was cheap and it looked the part. Everybody was wearing headsets anyway so the sound of this cheap gimmick didn't matter. But it sounds really good! Now it's used on a regular basis in the school music room. I like it a lot. Only complaint is that the on/off switch seems a little flimsy, but it have not fail me yet and might never do so. Comes in a nice little plastic case plenty strong for normal abuse!

Great value for the money
Mikael I., 13.01.2014
I bought two of these, one for me and one for my bands bassist. We play rockabilly (and some punk rock) and the design is spot on for that style. Our singer use a similar (nearly identical) microphone of a different brand but I'd say it is nearly impossible to tell that apart from this based only on the sound. Neither me or my bassist have had any quality problems and we have played probably about 30-50 gigs with these microphones, packing and unpacking between gigs. My recommendation is that unless you really want to buy a more pricey microphone, for whatever reason, this is a great choice.
