Great character

As usual, t.bone delivers fantastic mics at an affordable price. This one is quite extraordinary, it renders a warm, rounded-off sound with a lot of character. Picks upp the slightest tone changes for high-volume things lika a valve guitar amp. Been using it together with a t.bone MB 75 on a Fender Blues Junior which I found is a fantastic combo for a rich, detailed and big guitar sound.

Also recorded some vocals with this and sure, it is not the brightest, but a perfect fit for more mellow/vintage-y styles of music.

Do be aware of how ribbon mics work before you consider buying one - they are very sensitive to the surrounding room due to their pickup patter. If you want to try out the ribbon sound - do like me and start with this one, it is impossible to be disappointed given its price.

If I would point out one flaw is the arrangement of the included, non replaceable mic cable - since it cannot be replaced I would have liked a more sturdy one. Also, it makes it a bit difficult to fit the mic in the included case.

Smooth and dark sound. Works nicely as a room mic for drums, smashed to oblivion with a compressor. Also mixes well with an SM57 for fuller guitar sounds.

Seems to take abuse pretty well, I haven't managed to break it yet even with bumping it to drum stands etc.
