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.

A lovely and usefulmic!
JonathanKoh, 23.06.2019
This Mic took my breath away when it arrived in the case. Came in with a nice wooden box, a very retro looking Power Supply, accessories, and cables. The mic is heavy..so please don't drop it on your toes!
The sound of this mic is so usable and warm. I've recorded vocals and acoustic guitars with it and it all came out really nice.
A good tube mic for the home studio...worth every penny :)

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.

Big warm and vintage !

This mic way outdid any expectations i had on build quality. Amazing quality for the price. The tone reminds me of the early 70's vocals on many classic records, naturally saturated, and it keeps the sibilant singer under control, excellent for blues and Jazz. Needs less compression in your daw than the usual dynamic mics. Really good value for money !.

Tube Micraphone
Christopher6076, 20.03.2018
I bought this microphone to try and improve the quality of my recorded vocals. Success! This is without doubt a quality product. It comes with all necessary bits and bobs other than a stand and for this you will need a heavy and sturdy one because the mike weighs a lot! I find it gives warmth and clarity to my vocals It comes in a really good flight case which offers it total protection when stored or in transit. I bought an ART pre amp to go with it which makes setting levels a breeze. Possible flaws? Some of the threads are very fine so you need to take care when setting it up. That?s it. Once again Thomann supplies a very good product for an amazing price!
On reflection, there are several controls on the microphone and the power supply and it would be more that useful to have some kind of handbook showing how and for what these controls are used for.

Beautiful mic, with a retro style! Very heavy although. With a warm sound, good price, very flexible, with 8 different directional characteristics. I use it for home recording, to record some demo?s and ideas.
