I'm wondering if this is any good. It gets mixed reviews on amazon, if it's the same thing. I've started doing a little singing and am getting some bookings. It kind of suits the genre and I like the look and the price but don't want a desk ornament.

Is this the same?

If you can, buy the Shure one. It's more expensive but it is a great quality & overall interesting mic.

As a cheap replica I could recommend the T-bone <thomann's private label>

I heard it in a smooth jazz gig I was playing.
The singer wanted to add a vintage touch to the whole show and to be honest the mic was quite good for the price.

It wasn't the shure, but still a good one.

The chrome finish gets good reviews but the matt finish is slated. It can't be the finish. The thomman one looks promising. Slightly higher spec and around the same price. I don't think they'd sell rubbish, where as ebay...... well......we've all had our lemons.

The Thomann Tbone Elvis came today. I've only recorded one song and tried it through the little PA. First impressions are good. It looks amazing in the flesh. Even the case is quality. It comes with a sturdy folding desk mount in the case. I'd have prefered to pay a bit less and not bother with it.

Seeing as I got a notification about this thread being moved I thought I'd give you an update. I'm still using the Thomann T-Bone Elvis. for live work. It still looks great and performs like new. I recently got to use the Shure version and there is a noticable difference in quality. The shure being much better. The only way I can describe it is with the T-Bone it sounds like me coming through a PA but the Shure sounds like me. If money was no object, I'd go for the Shure.

I had one produced by Nady nearly identical. It worked. I eventually donated the Nady to a charity auction.
