I’ll say one thing, they’ve done a wonderful job with the packaging on this - the Blue Spark Studio Condenser Microphone comes in a wooden box with sculpted foam insert which holds the mic, funky popshield and shockmount.


Following the bottle styling of the Bottle Rocket and Bluebird mics, it also comes in bright orange, making it a pretty striking device - you certainly can t miss it in a darkened room.
A condenser microphone with a cardioid pattern, it takes 48v phantom power its designed to be a bit of an all-rounder - vocals, guitars, maybe drum overheads too.

The only tweakable setting is the focus button - this alters the internal circuitry to roll of a little bottom end and add a bit of extra love in the 1kHz area - making it a perfect setting for vocals.

We took it into the studio and gave it a workout on vocals and guitar and were generally impressed. For the price this mic offers considerable performance and application which makes it a serious contender for your hard earned cash.



Available now priced £165, €232, $199 (web prices)
