        I have used this mic for a couple years only because I haven't had the budget to get a better one. It picks up all the background noise you don't want (air conditioning, etc) and none of the details of the sound source that you do want. I used it primarily for vocals and it worked so-so on female vocals but it's worthless on male vocals. I tried miking an acoustic guitar with it but I could hear myself breathing over the strumming of the guitar...ridiculous.

        Comments about Blue Spark Studio Microphone:

        I bought this as a broken microphone, but all that was wrong was the headbasket mesh came off. It looks like their superglue failed, I can easily apply my own. Other that that it works perfectly.

        Did a quick test recording (with the headbasket taped back on), and was pleasantly surprised with how it recorded my Gibson Songwriter Studio acoustic guitar. I usually use either a JZ/Violet VIN26 or a Neumann TLM102 depending on the song. The Spark was in the ballpark, and if I didn't have those other two (and more expensive) mics I'd probably go to the Spark every time. It's missing some of the detail of those other mics.

        It's a great deal at retail price, my "broken" one was even less. Glad I took the chance.

                The Blue Spark is an excellent microphone that is a welcome addition to one's studio. This mic captures sound in an accurate and clear manner while adding unique warmth typical of Blue microphones. The Spark generates results that are particularly pleasing allowing either vocals or instrument ttracks to blend wonderfully in the mix. Be sure to add this mic to your studio collection.

                  This mic is a great value. I used to own an AT mic and loved it. I sold it and ended up needing another mic. I chose the Blue Spark because I know Blue is a trusted name for the microphone industry. Rather than go with a brand that's main line is affordable, I went with a company who creates high-end mic's, and chose their affordable line. They know how to make quality, and they wouldn't skip out on that while making a more home-studio friendly mic. I've enjoyed it since I've had it, and I'm sure I will enjoy it for a long time. Its a great little mic with a big sound!

                    Comments about Blue Spark Studio Microphone:

                    this mic is sterdy stylish and shit hot everything i would look for in a mic... the pop filter was garbage but i have another one so i didnt worry to much about it i still leave it on as a secondary pop filter and i hang my mic upside down which makes the shock mount work without flaw....i would recomend this mic to anyone who is looking for a go to mic who is on a budget....
                    i really wasnt very impressed by the focus button the difference is very sutle but it was unnecesary for my use of it any way
                    BUY THIS MIC. its amazing for the price this is as good as ur going to get
                    i cant speek enough about how well this mic has served the perpose i need'd it for. i record hiphop music and this mic is crisp and clear and the only eq work i have to do it a high and low pass filter to sharpen it alittle

                    Great price, quality and performance in this microphone. I use it on everything and love the sound.
                    Stop looking for the perfect microphone and buy this one. It has a smooth full sound. Vocals and acoustic guitar come out full and need very little eq to mix. A great mic
                    No Issues, works great
                    For the price, I can't imagine a better microphone, I love this thing

                    no frills, this mic just kills!

                    from Taos, N.M.

                    Comments about Blue Spark Studio Microphone:

                    i've been using a rode nt1000 lately for vocals, and honestly, i like this little guy better. equally as respnsive, but more focused. the rode would litterally pick up my cat meowing across the house. the spark picks up nuance and inflection just as well, without recording all of the unwanted ambient noise that happens to flow in a typical home studio. for anyone looking for an affordable vocal and all around mic, look no further. this mic is hands down the best value you will find in this price range.
                    what's so fantastic? nothing. no high pass, low pass, db. range selectors, or any of that nonesense. handy little focus control switch but even that doesn't do much. just pure, raw, brutally honest response. the woden box is a nice touch too. and the little panflet that came with it was designed to look like a book of matches (spark). these of course have nothing to do with the mic itself, but it's still pretty cool!
                    i was skeptical at first just seeing pictures of this thing because the arm holding the diaphram looks really skimpy. but i was supprised to find this thing is actually quite sturdy.
                    for the price, nothing beats it.
