Designed for desktop recording applications, the Snowball USB microphone incorporates Blue’s exceptional styling with high quality, versatility, and ease of use. The mic’s universal Mac/PC driver and plug & play USB compatibility make recording into your laptop or DAW quick and easy. Its unique dual-capsule design, one capsule tailored for vocals and the other for instruments, and a 3-position selector switch on the back of the mic let you dial in the desired sound.

The versatile 8-Ball is a cardioid condenser microphone designed with the needs of the professional recordist in mind. Featuring Blue’s highly regarded Class A discrete low-noise amplifier circuit, the 8-Ball’s smooth frequency response is sure to please even the most discerning professional ear. Perfect for applications as varied as male or female vocals, drum overheads or acoustic guitars, the 8-Ball will quickly become one of your “go to” microphones.

The Kickball is a specially designed low-frequency microphone from Blue. The back of the mic features a 3-position bass frequency switch allowingthree distinct low-frequency equalization curves. This circuit is based on a unique active RC filter that attenuates sub-bass (below 20Hz) frequencies and contours the low end without any noticeable phase distortion. On stage or in the studio, the Kickball’s punchy and detailed sound is perfect for kick drum, tom toms, electric bass, and bass cabinets.

The world’s first phantom power dynamic microphone, the original Ball is capable of handling extremely high sound pressure levels without distortion, making it the ideal choice for stage and studio. With its unique mid-range presence, the Ball comes alive in high volume situations — drums, guitar amps,bass cabinets, screaming vocalists, horns, and anything else that punishes lesser dynamic mics.
