      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.

            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...

              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.
