I collect these mics. Have three.

A phantom powered dynamic mic? Yup. This was Blue's first attempt at phantom powered dynamic mics, and the first in the world at the time. When this mic was discontinued, Blue went on to make the Encore phantom powered series. I'm not a fan of their Encore mics. There's something special about the Blue Ball.

I use mine with my ringer shockmount for my burlesque shows, sometimes I sing with them. It's a dynamic mic with condenser features, most noticeably, detail in voice. It catches the minor details of the mids and bass of your voice. Highs are comparable to an SM-58. If the highs had as much detail at the lows, then it would get five stars.

It does take some patience when setting this mic up with a PA. It's sensitivity can jolt you with feedback if you're unaware of how high the built in preamp is.

They're hard to come by nowadays. Guitarcenter will sell them for dirt cheap whenever they get them in stock. Ebay is $40-$160.

Phantom power makes this dynaic mic different along with the shape. Very nice signal from a dynamic mic. I also like the red phantom power indicator light on the front. No pad or pattern switch though it really doesn't need one.

Price paid: $80 USD

It has a dynamic mic sound like a SM57 but cleaner and more well balanced for vocals. Great for rap vocals but you really must perform to get the sound you want out of it or it will sound lifeless. Doesn't have the sheen and sparkle of good condeser mics.

Very easy to use. Just plug into a phantom power source and go.

Very rugged and well built. I don't stress over this mic like I do my sensitive condesers.

I do like this mic alot for a different kind of sound than my other mics. Great for rap. I also heard the producer Focus from Aftermath uses this mic.
