Primo Instrument Mic for the Stage!

Why settle for less than studio-quality tone, when you're giving it your all onstage? The Blue Microphones enCORE 100i makes sure you don't have to! Priced to fit right into your budget, and designed to perform with industry all-stars, the enCORE 100i joins Blue's groundbreaking live mic series. This is the perfect microphone for capturing all kinds of instruments onstage.

It's specifically designed to have a tighter polar pattern, so it'll pick up just what you want, without those issues with bleed. And its custom circuit (with transformer) and highpass filter give it an optimized frequency response for capturing drums, amplified instruments, and vocals. And, of course, Blue gave the enCORE 100i a super-rugged grille to protect it from strikes, while making sure this microphone stayed small enough to mount in the tightest of spaces. With the performance of a high-dollar microphone, offered at a truly unbelievable price, the Blue enCORE 100i is your way to get studio-grade tone when you're performing live.

Good stuff

I bought the mic on the promotion buy one get and it was worth it. I mostly use these mics on horns when i record local jazz bands live. I can i say that this mic is worth every penny.

enCORE 100i Dynamic Microphone

I purchased four of these microphones because of previous use, and I was not disappointed in its performance, quality and sound. They arrived very soon after ordering and the packaging was very excellent. I love the fact that the tweed storage pouch is great for keeping the mics clean and safe. The nice surprise was the inclusion of the mic clip which I did not remember as part of the package. Maybe I did not read the description fully, but I knew enough that I wanted the microphone. Of course, the price was too good to pass up either. Thanks for a great product.

Watch Out SM57

I purchased this on a buy one get one free deal @ Sweetwater. I've recorded a lot with an SM57 and I really didn't know what to expect from this, but I figured... what the heck. It's a great deal. To be honest... $90 for two of these would make you love just about anyhthing... but it really has merit. This sounds great. Even on vocals, I was pleasantly suprised. The other nice thing is... it's pretty darned bullet proof. The SM57 has a plastic cap that can be replaced if a drummer hits it with a stick. Which is nice... but I'd rather not have to replace it. I don't think anything would happen with this thing if you whacked it. It's a seriously robust outer cage ove the capsule. Again... for $90 you'd love just about any decent mic, but this is still a good value at less than what a 57 costs.

Good Mic Good Sales Rep

Sweetwater is always my first stop for good gear and great help. I asked my sales persons help with the choice between three mics to record my Leslie 3300. All three mics were about the same price and spec. My sales person said hands down try the encore 100i and I wouldn't be disappointed. As always he was right. Thanks Kyle. The mic is doing a great job and I am glad I took your advice. This is a great mic for instrument recording and all around use.

It's a THAT sound mic to the core!

Used it on a live recording for vocals and it shines like no other. I'd have no problem putting this $90 mic up against some of the better $300 mica like a beta 87, or even the e935! No problem areas that needed eq'd out and to presence of the vocals was most excellent! The vocalist I'm working with has trouble causing mics to feedback because he sings rather loud, but the sensitivity of this mic combined with the capsul components are a solid win! Plenty of room for eq and loads of superb tone!! I'll be getting atleast 6 more! I can't wait to see how well it handles instruments!
