OVERVIEW

A vacuum tube condenser mic that excels across a wide range of input levels so you can pick up every detail of your studio and live performances.

The sound of tube mics is undeniably rich and smooth. At the heart of each Behringer T-1 condenser mic is a hand-selected 12AX7 tube, which has been specifically designed to give these recording microphones their incredible sonic character. One advantage tube condensers have over their solid-state counterparts is that they are not subject to the rapid rise of odd-order harmonics, which the ear perceives as highly unmusical. Even when subjected to high sound pressure levels, the T-1 condenser mic reacts in much the same way the human ear does.

An ideal kick-drum mic
While this condenser mic can handle input levels as high as 130dB, the T-1 comes equipped with a switchable -20dB pad for the extremely high transients generated by kick-drums and heavy-metal vocalists. With its 20Hz to 20kHz frequency range, the T-1 can handle all the low-frequency content you can throw at it, and still provide all the definition your sound source deserves.

Cardioid polar pattern

Behringer T-1 Tube Condenser Mics feature a tight cardioid (heart-shaped) sound-reception pattern, which reduces the pickup of sound from the sides and rear for improved source isolation. The included custom shock mount fits all standard microphone stands and provides further isolation from external sources of vibration, such as sounds transmitted through floor joists and outside traffic.

Dedicated power supply
The included Behringer PSU-T power supply/preamp provides the supply voltage for the tube preamplifier and houses a Low Cut switch that can be used to reduce the low frequency response, if so desired. The included 7-pin multi-core cable supplies power to the mic and routes the audio signal to the XLR socket on the PSU-T.

The ultimate recording mic
Since the early days of recording, sound engineers have been searching for the best-sounding mics for recording acoustic instruments and the human voice. The resounding choice of professional recordists around the globe has been the tube condenser microphone because nothing compares to a sound that's so open, warm, and full of character. Unfortunately, tube mics can wipe out a home-recording budget faster than you can say "phantom power supply." But with the T-1, anyone who can afford a decent live microphone can have a studio-grade, tube-powered condenser mic for about the same price.

The T-1's sensitive side
Another advantage of tube mics is that they typically outperform transistor designs when it comes to subtle signal levels, such as environmental ambiance. The T-1 condenser mic picks up every nuance of your performance, capturing an openly transparent slice of time and space with just the right amount of tube warmth. Now you'll be able to justify that new set of strings for your acoustic guitar (because you'll hear the difference), and you'll marvel at the sparkling highlights coming off your wind chimes.

FEATURES
  • Professional, large-diaphragm, tube condenser microphone for unsurpassed audio quality
  • Hand-selected 12AX7 vacuum tube for exceptional warmth and vintage sound
  • Ideal as main and support microphone for studio and live applications
  • Cardioid pickup pattern for outstanding sound source separation and feedback rejection
  • Pressure-gradient transducer with shock-mounted capsule
  • Perfect for vocals and acoustic instruments
  • Switchable low-frequency roll-off and -20 dB input attenuation
  • External power supply with 30' multi-core included
  • Ultra-rugged construction with metal die-cast body

When you buy this affordable tube mic you'll marvel at the sparkling sound highlights of your favorite acoustic instruments.

great mic!

By Mark Morales

from Undisclosed

Comments about Behringer T-1 Tube Condenser Mic:

All in all, if you're looking a good overall mic for things like vocals, backups, acoustics this is a great mic to own. For the price, it's an amazing purchase. Very happy with it right out of the box.
Just putting together a home studio and thought this might be a good start mic. As it turns out, it is.
Really impressed by its sturdiness. I use it now for acoustic and vocals and it's fantastic.
For right under $200, it's a great value in my eyes...I mean, of course you could always upgrade but for a home studio it's absolute perfect.

I'm impressed!

By Anonymous

Comments about Behringer T-1 Tube Condenser Mic:

I own several recording mics, and this one is definitely among the best, particularly for recording acoustic guitars. As claimed, it has a very natural sound. Rounds off the boominess of my Martin D-35 very nicely. Excellent for vocals as well. Can't be touched for the price.

Excellent Mic at an Excellent Price

By Smitty

from Wisconsin

Comments about Behringer T-1 Tube Condenser Mic:

My son I have been using condenser mics in our studio for the last 7 years. We started out with some inexpensive mics and upgraded to a little more expensive condenser mics including the Sterling Audio ST-55 and Shure KSM27 (both are excellent mics). As we progressed with our recording skills, we wanted to obtain a more natural sound for our acoustic instruments and vocals. I decided to take the next step and get a tube mic. My research led me to the Behringer T-1 condenser tube mic. I bought one and both my son and I gave it a good work out. Since then, I bought an additional 3 Behringer T-1 mics, re-recorded my latest album with it and my son has recorded and entire new album with his T-1 mics. If you want a very natural sound to your recordings, this mic will provide it to you at an excellent price. Feature wise, the mic has only a cardioid pattern and a -20db switch (hence my lower features rating). Also the quality of the mic seems good, and while excellent for the price, it is not Shure quality.

Behringer T-1, Built Solid, Sounds Good

By Dennis Vernier

from Detroit, Michigan

Comments about Behringer T-1 Tube Condenser Mic:

I purchased the Behringer T-1 microphone primarily to record vocals on my youtube videos.It looks great, sounds good and appears to be very well made. It produces a very clear sound through a small Behringer mixer, run flat and directly into the camcorder. The end results are very impressive. The only negative thing is that the PSU-1 power supply has a low-cut switch that when activated makes an electronic hum through my system. I don't personally need this function so I'm just not using it. I don't think you could do better for the money and it probably sounds as good as condensor microphones that are far more expensive. It also comes with a solid shock mount, wind screen and carrying case.

Just got one and comapared it with some of the most expensive mics from Neumann and AKG. You can hardly hear any difference and the built-in tube really is really sweet. This mic has a warm and clean sound. Also it comes with a nice alu case. Incredible mic for the money.
