Mad about the MouseIf you record soul, country, rock, rap, blues, or any of the several styles that make up the multifarious world of popular music, you really need to check out the Mouse! The Mouse delivers the bright, forward sound typical of the classic large diaphragm mics like the Neumann U47 and AKG C-12, mics that have been staples of some of the most memorable pop records for decades. Your recordings not only sound great, but they have that special quality that listeners respond to immediately. This cardioid condenser microphone pushes vocals and instruments right up to the front of a mix! It features a swiveling capsule and solid-state transformer-coupled electronics.

by Jon Evans from Austin, TXThis is a swiss army knife in the studio. Of coarse it works great on Vocals and Guitars, but it has a great effect on Kicks, Bass, and Snares. I no longer need to use a SM57 as the only go to mic for... read more [+] snares. Throw this on top of the snare, and pair it with a 441 or 421 and enjoy drum heaven. close [-]

by fromThis is a super cool mic. It's great on acoustics for a very rich sound. It can worl well on vocals with the right vocalist. My favorite use for this mic is to place a pair about 2 feet off the ground... read more [+] out in front of a kit and use them for close room mics when I have a brighter pair of distant room mics. Unless you're going for a darker sound on the kit. Awesome mic close [-]

by Rich Lodato from Glenside, Pa.I go through a lot of mics for my voice. I have a deep tenorish side to my vocals with a resonant when I hit the high notes that desn't translate well into most mics or preamps for that matter. Harsh!... read more [+] My last 3 mics were a Pearlman TM1. The stock capsule was too bright so I put in a real K67 and it was better but still too bright. Then a real M7 and that did the trick! I won't even go into what the mic cost me in the long run. I bought a blue mouse (transformer version) at the time I still owned the TM1 and compared the two mics and found that they had a very similar sound. In fact with a tad less eq in the mids, the mouse sounded better to me. I wound up selling both mics during a $$ woes and bought a Advanced audio CM47 with stock capsule. I know the reviews this mic gets but this mic was the worst I have heard for my voice. Very forward to the point of hurting my ears. I spoke with Dave the builder of this mic about it (nice guy by the way) and he said that's how it was designed to sound. Well, that may work for some folks but it's not my cup of tea. I finally bought another Mouse and it's nice to have it back. I sounds beautiful on my voice with even a cheap meek VC1Q channel strip. nough said! It has tuns of it's own color but that color is pure vintage. You just can't go wrong with this mic. Build quality is as solid as they come. I reccomend the shock with this mic. close [-]

great sounding mic
by andrew from orange countygreat mic with a 'different' flavor and very smooth sound. great mic for male vocals of any kind- rap, pop, rock, etc. also works great on acoustic guitar, low toms, bass and kick. very up front, g... read more [+]reat proximity effect that lends itself to the sound, and needs very little e.q. to sound great. female vocals are not its strong point, though certainly usable. clean guitar sounds good, distorted guitar also not its strong point. overall, a great mic with many uses that will compliment most anyones mic cabinet. close [-]

The Blue Mouse is quickly becoming one of my favorite microphones! It puts the vocals where they need to be (up front and present) with almost no effort. I almost feel like I am cheating when I use this mic. Be sure to add a Blue Quad cable to get the most out of any mic!
