Blue Microphones have today announced the release of their Snowball USB mic. Ideal for podcasts, Skype conversations or home recording, the microphone costs £89.95, available from Solutions-Inc.
Thanks to a dual capsule design and three-pattern switch (cardioid, cardioid with -10db pad and omnidirectional), the Snowball should be able to pick up the most raucous heavy metal band or the smoothest songstress with equal clarity.
It’s not a bad looking bit of kit either, reminiscent of the radio mics of the 1950’s, albeit with an anachronistic USB plug on the end.
