Question I want your opinion about Behringer's T1 & T47 mics please

Hello

I would like to know if anyone here is using Behringer's T1 or T47 tube microphones.I tried to find a review on the web a number of times,but couldn't.

To save people's time here ,the price asked is considered to be low for me ,and the next "better" [????] option is a studio projects C1 ,that I had the chance to try and I have an idea of how it sounds.However budget is Very limited here.

So,if anyone actually uses those I'd like to know what he [or she] thinks.
If you going to tell me "hey its Behringer dont even bother" Without having any experience with those , please ,Dont.

IMHO you'd be much better off spending the same amount of money on an AT2035, the king of low-budget condensers. But your mileage may vary and it ultimately comes down to personal taste. I prefer transparent mics over the more "colored" ones. My advice is: listen before you buy.

P.S. I have no anti-Behringer bias. I love my BCF's and UMX610 controller.

My review of the T47 is here - part of a big thread on the Behringer tube mics.

In short - if you want a low cost tube mic save your money and get an Apex 460 - a real tube mic for $189 (The T47 is a faux tube mic with FET, bipolar transistors and get this - 9mm electret condenser capsule like you'd find in an answering machine}. If you don't need a tube mic a used Oktava MK-319 for $100 or new MXL 2003A for $149 are probably the two best low cost, cardioid-only mics. The v67g for $99 is a bit of a step down from the 2003A in its stock form with its higher noise floor, somewhat edgy top end and less than ideal headbasket.

I Did listened to the Behringer T1, using a Tascam US122 sound interface and recorded a classical guitar, using AKG's K44 headphones [sound interface and phones not really my choice ,but thats life I guess :P ).
The mic appeared to be noisy ,the dealer told me that was due to improper grounding .Overall I can't say I was impressed, with its sound or detail ,tutt so I rejected the T1.
