      Comments about Blue Spark Condenser Microphone Gold Limited Edition:

      Great mic!!! in my home studio I own a CAD, AKG, Shure, among many others, but this one gives the warmth that I was looking for.
      My main instrument is classical guitar, I have to say that it makes it sound so awesome...

        Comments about Blue Spark Condenser Microphone Gold Limited Edition:

        As the title suggested, the pop-filter is just a useless decoration. I still had to make my own and place it between myself and the mic. The sound quality is okay. I little weak on the high range.

                Comments about Blue Spark Condenser Microphone Gold Limited Edition:

                While I don't have experience with a bunch of higher end mics, I can say the Spark is much better than most of the other budget priced condensers I've tried. It has a nice clear and clean sound. To my ear has no sharp bumps in any frequency range, which is a complaint I had with a previous condenser in the same price range I owned. The Spark is built like a tank and I love the gold color!!

                The "Focus" button is hard to distinguish a difference at first, but I can see it being useful for certain instruments and recording situations. I recommend reading Blue's tech info. about what it really does to understand it correctly.

                It is great at rejecting sound from the rear. I'm in a small room with a computer that makes too much noise. If I have the mic about 6 ft. away and facing away from the computer it is very quiet. Big plus!

                Comes with a nice Blue dual 22 awg. cable, shock mount and pop filter. I see reviewers complain about the shock mount and pop filter not being that great. I think they're fine for "free". You just have to put a little muscle into the shock mount tightening screw. I never expected the pop filter to do the same job a full separate filter can. What I like is the design aspect. It's part of the mic so it's there all the time for most jobs and if more is needed than a full separate one can be used.

                It also has an informative manual and solid carrying case. I see some say that's is solid wood. It's not, just laminated MDF of some sort. It's still nice quality and strong. I also like the company itself. Seems like they have as much concern for those buying their budget mics as they do for the very expensive ones.
