Impressive
Just a customer, 12.04.2016
I need to fill out my mic draw with some dynamics, and I've of course read up on the other reviews of these t.bone mics. I thought at the price, it's worth a punt to see if it stands up as a realistic alternative to the industry standard for those of us on a tighter budget.

Firstly, I was impressed with the nice hard wearing plastic case that it comes in. Much better than any other mic I have, costing much more. Then the mic itself; Solid look and feel with metal body. Good finish, quality is great. I really could not see anything that would lead me to believe that this was a cheap item.

How does it sound? Well, other people have already compared it to it's more expensive inspiration, so I decided to compare it to some equally cheap dynamics I acquired of the years that I had lying around...

Yoga D727 and a Sanyo MP303. As expected the MB75 BETA out performs these quite easily, as from the specs you can see that the MB75 has a greater frequency response and a tighter polar pattern. Which is usually more preferable for a dynamic mic IMHO. But it's nice to actually hear it.

I then compared it to my trusty AKG C1000 condenser to record acoustic guitar. Not an application that the MB75 is really suitable for, yet I was still quite impressed... at a push you could get away with it in a recording.

On vocals sounds great, smooth and responsive, but of course less detail than a large diaphragm mic. Fantastic for live use I imagine. On percussion it's perfect for all kinds of things.

Basically I've now got a very handy extra tool in the home studio for setting up all kinds of micing situations. i record a lot of acoustic instruments and used in conjunction with other types of mics it will really help me out I'm sure.

Considering the price I don't think I can give this thing any less than 5 stars.

cheap but efficient
ChrisVerwimp, 11.11.2020
Bought it for some home studio recordings. Wanted something able to work on vocals and instruments.
So far, I'm pleased. I wasn't expecting much regarding how cheap it actually is but I just can't find anything bad to say about it.
I though no switch would be an issue but as I can de-activate it directly from my DAW software or mixer, it doesn't matter.
Extra point earned from it's solid paded case. So much better than the usual simple skay leather pouch fancier mics are sold with.

Brilliant Dynamic Microphone
12.02.2017
This is a bit of a Beta SM57 clone. I have used this microphone on a few different sources, mainly guitar cabinets,snare drums, saxophone and vocals. This microphone has a slightly hotter output than the non beta version (which I also own). I particularly love this mic on guitar cabs, usually paired with another mic. It handles Sound pressure Levels very well and is suited to loud sources such as percussion/drums and guitar/bass cabinets. I did try this microphone on vocals but I was wasn't overly keen on the results, however this may have been the singer not suiting the mic. I will do a reasonable job on whatever you throw at it.
This is also a very sturdy mic, nice metal construction, a little bit heavier than its little brother the MB75. It feels very solid in your hand with a very sturdy grill. I am confident that this mic will last for years. It also comes with a very good mic clip and a plastic foam lined box.

From a beginner's perspective, excellent mic for guitar amp!
albertotp, 12.01.2019

This is my first mic and I got it mainly for recording a guitar amplifier at home. For the small price, I just decided to give it a try and experiment and I was blown away. It obviously was a huge improvement over recording with my cell phone! I plug it with sssnake XLR cable into a Focusrite iTrack Solo audio interface to record my guitar amp. I just got started recording so I do not have a base for comparison, but I feel both clean and dirty guitar tones are well captured and detailed, including transient attacks, and it did not capture any room noise even though I recorded in my bedroom at low volumes. I still have not tried to record vocals or other instruments.

The mic looks and feels like a high quality and durable product way more expensive than what it actually costs. It comes with a mic clap and a case that you could take anywhere, so it's really designed to be a heavy-duty studio or road microphone.

I am totally satisfied and definitely recommend the product.
