Blue Microphones SparkSpark is the latest addition to the Blue line of microphones, and despite its modest price tag, you get everything you'd expect from Blue. Cosmetically, Spark is rockin' the kind of vintage vibe that made Blue mics instantly recognizable, with the sleek orange body accented by chrome. Sonically, Spark uses Blue's premium medium-diaphragm condenser capsule and proprietary custom preamp design to great effect, giving your tracks professional sound right out of the box. But Spark's bag of tricks doesn't end there! Push the "Focus" button and Spark shifts from its full-range response (great for general recording tasks) to a more up front sound that really lets your tracks sit forward in a mix.
Custom-designed, Class A capsule
Designed to help you achieve professional quality recordings in any creative environment, Blue's Spark features a custom-designed condenser capsule with Class-A discrete electronics resulting in superbly detailed and uncolored output making it the ideal microphone for recording vocals, drums, guitars, pianos, brass, woodwinds, and just about anything else you can light a fire under.
A new feature found only on the Spark microphone is the unique Focus Control, providing two different usage modes at the push of a button: the Normal mode (out position) providing increased low frequency sensitivity for recordings with great impact and definition, along with the Focus mode, (in position) for even greater clarity and detail.
The Spark microphone ships with a custom-designed pop-filter and shockmount as well as a convenient and stylish wood case for transport. With Spark, you've got everything you need to make professional recordings, all in one package.
