We're compiling the best Holiday 2016 music gear deals. See them here.
In this video titled "BEHIND THE SCENES OF PEWDIEPIE", PewDiePie goes through his gear setup. At 1:40 into the video, he shows what microphone he uses, the Blue Spark Condenser Microphone. He admits it might not be ideal for him since it has a small diaphragm, and when he yells it makes the audio clip a lot. However, he says, "But - and I'm gonna sound so hipster - I think it looks pretty!"more
The microphone itself is great. However, the pop filter that it comes with, is not that good, I recommend investing in a cheap pop filter, nothing above a $25-$30 pop filter is really needed.
Your voice won't sound bass-y if it is not. AND THAT IS GOOD! (we roll it off anyway hahaha!)
I love how it came with a wooden box, a custom shockmount, a pop filter, and a little manual to help you kickstart your recording process.
The pop filter, I believe, doesn't filter the pop. :)) So I had to use a bigger one.
The shockmount is okay, but the garters are kind of tight so it still kinda connects the two parts together, which is bad of course. I had to use a separate shock mount.
but the mic alone is great. I plug it into my focusrite scarlett solo and it sounds awesome at 1 o'clock gain.
Its a very good upgrade from my yeti. It comes in a very nice wooden box including a high quality chord and a pop filter. The only negative is the pop filter, it isn't the best but still 5 stars haha.
