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.

    Yeah, I can almost imagine myself chatting with my friends with a microphone from 1950s in front of me. How cool would that be!

    Thanks for making my day. My son has a birthday in a few weeks and he would really appreciate a microphone like that.
