Ignite your creativity with Blue Mics' Spark—the only solid-state condenser microphone that gives you the sound of two mics in one.

Spark’s ingenious Focus Control provides two distinct modes, while our legendary custom-designed condenser capsule and Class-A discrete electronics deliver detailed sound for any recording situation. Whether you’re starting your studio or expanding your mic locker, Spark delivers incredible versatility and trusted Blue performance for recording vocals, drums, guitars, pianos and more.

Split Personality
Why settle for one mic when you can have two with Spark? Focus Control changes the capsule voltage and completely alters the sonic character of the mic—giving you the sound and flexibility of two microphones.

Normal mode heightens low-frequency sensitivity for robust, defined bottom end, while Focused mode accentuates mids and highs for ultra-clear, detailed recordings. Switch between them to suit the vibe of your recording and create intricately layered tracks.

Amazing Detail!
Spark delivers incredible clarity, detail and presence in any recording environment—from a professional studio to your bedroom. You get clear, transparent sound across the frequency spectrum with no excessive coloration—no matter what you're recording. And with our hand-tuned medium-diaphragm condenser capsule and custom components, Spark gives you the premium sound quality you’d expect from mics costing three times as much.

Going Digital
Create studio-quality recordings on any iOS device with Spark Digital. Featuring the same hand-tuned cardioid condenser capsule found on Spark, Spark Digital is perfect for vocals, podcasts, guitars, drums, and just about anything else that you can throw onto the fire. And with both USB for laptop/desktop and Lightning for iPhone/iPad connectivity, Spark Digital forms the perfect centerpiece for your mobile studio.

    Great Entry Level Microphone

    By 

    from Edison, NJ

    Staff Reviewer

    If you are looking to start recording and are on a budget the Blue Spark Microphone is a great entry level condenser mic. Very clear sound and it already comes with a quality shock mount so once you get it you can plug it right into any interface and begin recording. Comes with a wooden box so when it is not being used you can put it away and keep it from getting damaged.

      Spark SL

      By

      Staff Reviewer

      I have been thoroughly impressed by the Blue miss. They are really better than what they are priced at. The spark reproduces great lows, mids and highs in very good detail. Cannot say enough good things about these mics and they only get better as you go up in price

      Versitile Mic

      By 

      from Canoga Park, CA

      Staff Reviewer

      If you're starting your home studio, and you have a budget for just one mic, this is a really good option. It works well on vocals and instruments, and the switch on it can give you a couple different sounds. It's not finicky about ohms, and you can use it with any interface or mic pre.

        Blue hit it out of the park with this update to the Spark! The SL has a nice, smooth sound. Great for a entry level vocal microphone in the home studio. Includes the pop filter and shock mount, making it a great package for the budget conscious.
