Outstanding sound quality courtesy of Blue innovation

If you're not already familiar with the Blue Microphones lineup, then the incredible quality of the Spark SL may come as quite a shock to you (pardon the pun). This amazing sound is made possible by the quality components included in the Spark SL, many of which Blue developed when designing their flagship models. For instance, the gold-sputtered 0.9" capsule and phantom-powered preamp are direct results of creating studio-standard mics such as the Blue Bottle series. The result is an affordable mic that offers you uncommonly low distortion across the frequency spectrum.

    Highpass filter and -20dB pad offer amazing versatility

    Air conditioner rumble, low-frequency vibrations, and wind noise are detrimental to your recordings. The Blue Spark SL's highpass filter takes care of these issues, resulting in clean-sounding tracks. And if you're recording a loud source like a drum or guitar cabinet, switch on the -20dB pad and enjoy a clear, distortion-free recording. The Spark SL is versatile enough to capture virtually any sound source.
