I just got a preamp and some extension chords so I can now record with my bluebird mic. Check me out on youtube. Please subscribe, I have no subscribers. :( (http://www.youtube.com/user/UkuleleAdventure?feature=mhee)

Great job. I subscribed and am looking forward to your future videos. How about a list of your equipment? Is that the new Blue microphone that just came out?

No, this is not the spark usb mic. However, I hear that mic is really good. The bluebird is supposedly one of Blue's best acoustic mics. I use the icicle preamp to record from my computer $40 amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Microphones-Icicle-Converter-Preamp/dp/B001EW5YQS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330730261&sr=8-1). A while back I bought the bluebird with a shockmount, popfilter, and some great speakers in an ebay auction for $275. Retail of the mic itself is $299 I bought a boom stand from guitar center for $40 (http://www.guitarcenter.com/ProLine-MS220-Tripod-Boom-Microphone-Stand-100044992-i1168476.gc) I also bought an xlr extension on amazon for $6 (http://www.amazon.com/Your-Cable-Store-Microphone-feet/dp/B001JI2KHS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330730430&sr=8-1) I film it and edit it with windows movie maker.

Thanks for the information. You have a nice setup. I recently received the Blue Yeti which I've used it once so far. It works well for my intended purpose.

Nice mic indeed! I suggest that you should also upgrade the cam because it can't capture your fast strumming. :)

I agree, I was having trouble with the built in webcam on my comp with windows movie maker. I will definitely look into purchasing a better one.
