T.Bone Reto Tube II Microphone.
MacLoud, 22.01.2014
The first unit arrived quickly but the power supply did not turn on. A quick call to Thomann and a returns postal certificate was issued.
The goods were refunded promptly.
A second unit was ordered and also arrived quickly and all worked fine this time.
The case is good quality. The microphone mount is amongst the most solid that we have seen.
The mic is quite heavy and we would recommend a really good, heavy mic stand to support it.
The three polar patterns all work as designed and all sound fine. The mic is not noisy and exhibits good response all round, with no unnatural over emphasis on any particular frequency range.
A very good value, inexpensive valve microphone. The same mic, re-badged, is available from many other places but expect to pay at least £100 to £200 more.
Great value for the price.

Impressive!!
Jimbo52, 07.03.2016
Had this mic for a few years now. It's served me well as my main vocal mic and occasional M/S side mic when recording.

I have compared this with some industry standard recording microphones and it held its own for a fraction of the price. I tested it at the side of a Neumann U87, an AKG C414 and an Audio Technicha 4050. Out of all of those it was the warmest (because it's a tube mic) but also was fairly low noise.

Overall a brilliant, cheaper alternative for home vocal recording.
