Apparently this great little microphone has been around for a little while now, and has gone down particularly well in the States, but I first got a glimpse of it at an exhibition last Thursday evening.
The Snowball Microphone is a multi-purpose, professional-grade USB-powered condenser mic for either PC or Mac, offering a frequency response of 40Hz-18kHz, and three recording types: cardioid, cardioid with -10dB pad, and omnidirectional.
The mic sits upon the included six-inch stand. So not only does it look fantastic but it does the job, too. It’s only monophonic, but you can always hook two up, and at less than £90 ($100 – exchange rate strikes again) it’s pretty decent value.
