Overview

The Blue 8-Ball is a condenser microphone that gives new meaning to playing in the pocket! While it may bear a striking resemblance to another spherical mic that recently took the microphone world by storm, The 8-Ball resembles its circular cousin The Ball in looks alone.

The 8-Ball is a cardioid condenser microphone designed with the needs of the professional recordist in mind, but priced within reach of the beginning home user or hobbyist. Featuring Blue's highly regarded Class A discrete low-noise amplifier circuit, the 8-Ball's smooth frequency response is sure to please even the most discerning professional ear. Perfect for applications as varied as drum overheads to acoustic and electric guitars or vocals, the 8-Ball will perform reliably as your go-to mic.

A standard thread swivel mount at the base of the microphone allows the user to pivot the 8-Ball back and forth, making mic placement a snap. And because the 8-Ball requires phantom power, a front-mounted LED confirms that the mic is ready to use.

Great mic for a great price

By RON-DIG

from Georgia

I just recently bought one of these and I must say my expectations were far surpassed. It's great for drum overheads, really clean and clear, not too much treble, just a nice crisp sound. This is also a good bass guitar mic. It brings out the tone over the lows and creates a nice warm, mixed sound. Awesome mic for recording, and you can't beat the price either.
