Blue snowball is okay, however I'd suggest looking at some videos on how to set it up because unless you have it within like 20cm of your mouth, it is extremely quiet, the blue snowball is used mainly for commentary and podcasts. I was looking to get one but I didn't want it so close to my mouth as I was only going to use it to talk to people when I was gaming so I didn't get it in the end.

I actually have that boom stand and it's okay, not the best but you get what you pay for. If you hit your desk at all even bumping it, the vibrations are picked up by the mic which can be annoying if you're recording or whatever. There are better ones, but they're in the $100 range just for the boom stand.

My recommendations if you're going to be getting a microphone and stand for recording and / or streaming or anything of that kind where you want to have a high voice quality, getting the Rode setup (below)

View attachment 170217

It is £218.00 GBP ($280 ish) for all three items however it'll be better in the long run and the quality you get is extremely good. But as I said before, read up on them, watch videos comparing microphones and find the best settings.

(I know a decent amount because I was doing quite a bit of research before when I wanted to record videos ect)
ty, link to buy?

I don't recommend USB at all. Go XLR all the way and with a good interface such as a Scarlett Solo. Then invest into the Podfarm DAW software which helps make additional effects to your voice (costs $200 but there are plenty of cracks available). You will have to set up your Scarlett with RCA jacks (maybe cost an extra $3 for you) and you'll be all set.

This is my personal setup:

Although I admit that Rode microphones do sound good, I still would go XLR all the way. Much more capability and much better bandwidth transfer and instead to cheap out I would invest in the Audio Technica (possibly the favoured AT2020) series depending on your budget.

Let me get one for ya.[DOUBLEPOST=1544385792][/DOUBLEPOST]Although Dynamic Microphones are very expensive... The best one on Amazon which is cheap is:
If you want the best it is used on podcasts usually but is fairly expensive (and branded):
Or the best in the market:

Just saying but Amazon links do not work on the forum. I know, it's pretty stupid, might want to use Goo.gl as a URL shortener or something.
