  • The Blue Snowball USB mic

    As reviewed by Phil on 7/27/2009

    I just purchased this mic. I hooked it up and was immediately impressed. I'm running it into my MacBook Pro and using Logic 8. It sounds incredible! You will not get a better mic for this price, it is well worth it. I would have paid more for this mic. I've used it for micing my guitar amp, my acoustic guitar and my voice. It sounds great for vocals wether you are singing or doing spoken word. If you're a musician or voice-over artist looking for a cheap yet reliable microphone, I would highly recommend this.

  • Blue Snowball

    As reviewed by CMC on 8/15/2011

    For the price, this microphone is awesome. It is a USB condenser mic, so there is no need for an interface; Just plug in and rock out! This microphone does really well with vocals, but, like all other condensers, it's pretty touchy and does need a pop filter. With amps and cabs, this microphone also rocks. As long as you know how to position a mic on an amp cab, then you'll get some great tones out of it. However, with acoustic guitar, I've found that this mic doesn't pick up all the fine detail that it needs to in order to get a rich, full tone. Still an awesome microphone, especially for the price. I say get one, just to have one.

  • Complete Amateur says "Love It"

    As reviewed by JOHN HAYNES on 3/27/2012

    When I say "complete amateur" I mean it. I wanted to try some home recording, didn't want to spend a zillion dollars and needed something pretty easy. The folks at my local GC recommended the Blue Snowball. To me, the mic looked weird, but I went with it. I'm glad I did. I started reading the set-up instructions, then got to the end of them and wondered where the rest were. Nope..that was it. Plugged it into my USB, did the few required clicks and it was up and running. My recording software recognized it right away and I tried laying some tracks down. I'm sure I'll get better with the whole recording thing (the GC guys said I'll get hooked) but all I can say is that this mic worked great and it seems to record very accurately. If I had any complaint, the stand construction seems a little cheesy, specifically the part where you can raise and lower the mic height and tighten it down. The mic itself is really well built. Why only four stars? Besides the fact that I don't really know what I'm talking about, I'm sure there are better 5-star mics, based on price alone. I love my Snowball so far!
