Jan 15th, 2011 | By | Category: Podcasting Hardware

From NAMM ’11: Microphone innovator Blue Microphones was promoting its recently-released Spark, a cardioid, solid-state condenser microphone, with high-quality, fully discrete components and an innovative Focus control offering two sonic signatures. Along with its attractive design and wide range of recording capabilities, Spark also comes with a custom shock mount and pop filter in a wooden case for a suggested retail of $199.

The Spark microphone features Blue’s premium condenser capsule, which promises low noise, high efficiency, and rapid response in any recording situation. Blue introduces with this model what it calls “the Focus control,’ which, when selected, results in a tighter, more direct and focused, “present” sound.  The circuit design of this mic pairs Spark’s condenser capsule with a phantom-powered outboard amplifier to drive the capsule with linear control and accuracy.

The Spark microphone package also provides a detailed recording guide showing complete setup and recording tips for a variety of instruments and vocal sounds. Spark comes with a three year manufacturer’s warranty.
