About Blue Microphones Snowball

The Blue Microphones Snowball USB Condenser Microphone is not only easy to use, but sounds as good on your desktop as it does in a professional recording studio. Whether you're recording a guitar at your kitchen table or a complete band in the studio, the Snowball can capture it with detail unheard of before in a USB mic. The cardioid polar pattern has a more focused pickup and generally "hears" whatever the mic is pointed at, while the omnidirectional pattern picks up sounds in all directions.

The sensitivity and signal character of the Snowball result in outstanding clarity and detail while capturing vocals, guitars, drums and more at CD-quality rates of 16-bit/44.1kHz. A -10dB pad switch provides added headroom and minimizes distortion when capturing audio at excessive levels. The mic comes complete with a desktop stand and a USB cable so you can begin recording right away.

Blue Microphones Snowball Features

  • USB Output: The USB output enables direct integration with a desktop or laptop computer, allowing CD-quality recording to software-based applications without a preamplifier
  • Dual Capsule Design: The dual capsule design incorporates omnidirectional and cardioid elements to give you a choice of what the mic "hears"
  • -10dB Pad: A -10dB pad switch eliminates noise and distortion when capturing signals at extreme volume levels
  • Accessories Included: A desktop stand and USB cable are included so you can begin recording right away

Great purchase


from Harrisburg, PA  -  Experienced

For voice recordings, the sound was crystal clear. I'm using the freeware Audacity for editing and I'm very pleased with the combination.
