Behringer T-1 Studio Vacuum Tube Condenser Microphone

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. Why? Because nothing compares to the sound captured by a good tube condenser microphone — so open, warm and full of character.

But tube mics can wipe out a home-recording budget faster than you can say "phantom power supply." That's why Behringer is so very proud to present their new T-1 microphone. This mic exemplifies commitment to quality and value — now anyone who can afford a decent live microphone can have a studio-grade, tube-powered condenser mic for about the same price.

Classic Tube Sound
The sound of tubes is undeniably rich and smooth. At the heart of each of these mics is a hand-selected 12AX7 tube, which has been specifically designed to give these microphones their incredible sonic character. One advantage tube condensers have over their solid-state counterparts is 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 mic reacts in much the same way the human ear does.

T-1 Has a Sensitive Side
Another advantage is that tube mics typically outperform transistor designs when it comes to subtle signal levels, such as environmental ambience. The T-1 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.

But I Need a Good Kick-Drum Mic
While these mics can handle input levels as high as 130 dB, the T-1 comes equipped with a switchable -20 dB pad for the extremely high transients generated by kick-drums, heavy-metal vocalists and mortar launchers. With its 20 Hz to 20 kHz 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
Both of these mics feature a tight cardioid (heart-shaped) 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, outside traffic, etc.

Dedicated Power Supply
The included Behringer PSU-T 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.

When it comes to value, Behringer has always been an industry leader. The T-1 tube condenser microphone takes that legacy to the next level, providing studio-grade quality at incredibly consumer-friendly pricing. This great sounding mic is so affordable, you'll want one for your main vocals, one for backup vocals, another for the bass rig, and another for...
