"The Snowball is amazing for us to travel the world with, throw it in our suitcase and have with us as part of a mobile studio anywhere we go. The dual capsule gives us versatility to sing with dynamic range and plenty of other settings for us to play with. Any idea we get, we can track it with this mic. Excellent for recording IDs or liners in a pinch. Overall, AMAZING!"more
Great recording quality at a great price. I use it for everything! Works well with both electric and acoustic guitar. All the songs I've recorded so far have been with this little gem.
The Snowball is incredibly affordable, whilst maintaing a fantastic recording quality. This can fit in my suitcases and backpacks wherever I go, and is perfect for a quick vocal fix, but also works like a dream on other instruments like my acoustic guitars and percussion instruments. Really fantastic value for money, and between the brilliance of its sonic fidelity and the sheer portability of this item, it definitely deserves my 5 stars. Fantastic piece of kit.
All of the songs I have produced in the past year that included vocals were recorded on this little guy, who delivers exceptional sound for it being a USB microphone! I used the Blue Yeti for a while (before an issue with internal wiring caused me to stop using it) and I missed the high quality sound I got with it. I feel like for the price, the Snowball is a much better value and singers and musicians starting off should really consider it.
This was my first ever microphone and the very tool that got me excited about making music. I credit this mic to sparking a lot of the fire and passion behind who I am today.
It was a gift from my gf, it's the top one in some rankings of usb mics; it has a really good sound, clean and warm; i use REAPER as my DAW, and i have to say that it sounds amazing. You will need a Pop Filter though, because to get a great sound you need to record very close to the mic.
Its a great production microphone for speaking in videos and with friends. However the microphone isn't a music quality professional mic so even adding a pop filter wont do much to make it pick up vocals well.
