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.

Have purchased 3 of these, first one back in 2009!
Used weekly in amateur band and for all gigs in everything from theatres to pubs, clubs and halls. Used by backing singers/musicians rather than main vocalist as we have found the feedback to be a problem with singer who tends to move around more. Mixer channels need slightly different EQ to Shure SM58 beta but not a huge difference. Mechanically well made with no sharp unfinished edges these are very strong and survive being dropped !
Usually supplied in a handy hard case with a stand clip and cable ( usually a 6M ). Great value for money and would certainly replace or buy more of the same.

Great mic, but more handling noise then expected

A great mic and is extremley good value for money. I love this and have just added two more to my collection.

My one issue with the mic is that there is a fair bit of handling and cable noise, not as much as a cheap mic but no where near as good as say the SM58.

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.

I'm in awe!

I must have tried about 10 different mics for live vocals, from the very cheap ones to some expensive ones. I used to perform with a Shure SM58 as the perfect compromise between sound quality and feedback control. I've also used the Beta 58A, Shure's improved version of the 58, in my opinion it was too cold and sterile for male rock/folk vocals. The SM58 on the other hand was too muddy for my voice. I bought the MB85 Beta to use as a backup to my SM58. All I can say is the SM58 is gone and I'm planning to buy a second MB85 Beta! It's the perfect microphone for me, neither too muddy (SM58) nor too shrill (Beta 58A). Great value for money, too! I would definitely recommend this to a friend!
