Product Description

Featuring upgraded electronics and a sleek look, the SP microphone product line is the result of 5 years of research and development by Brent Casey, veteran microphone designer and Vice President of Engineering of Studio Projects. The electronics allow for better signal-to-noise ratio, as well as greater dynamic range. All B Series microphones (except the TB1) now feature -10 dB and -20 dB pads.

The Studio Projects B1 condenser microphone is a large-diaphragm cardioid microphone in a pressure-gradient transducer employing high-quality transformerless design and extremely low noise.

The B1 will enhance any professional or project studio application at an unbelievable low price. As a result of uncompromising dedication and today's advanced production abilities, Studio Projects has broken the barrier of quality vs price for today's recording studio environment.

Being versatile is the key in the recording arena, and the Studio Projects B1 is no exception. Equipped with a true 1" gold-sputtered large-diaphragm in a pressure gradient transducer capsule, the B1 will deliver the finest quality of vocal and instrumentation recordings in a wide variety of applications. It offers a natural, extended, transparent high end, and the thick low end expected from a quality microphone.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (80 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Awesome mic! Where a ski mask when you order, because $99 for this mic is like stealing from Studio Projects!"
Sound: I have never really payed too much attention to studio project products. After doing some research and asking around I decided to test one out. I mainly record vocals (hip hop/R&B/Ballad). For the price I was impressed. It doesn't have the muddiness in the vocals. At the same time it wasn't to bright. I would say the sound of this mic with a little bit of tweaking on your DAW brings your vocals to near pro studio quality. It also comes with options to cut down on your freq. For $99 you can't lose out. I really picky when it comes to mics. I highly recommend this mic in its price range. I rated this mic an 8 because there are better mics out there, but you might have to dig through your pockets a little deeper for the higher end mics. In comparison to an AT2020 and this mic, I would chose this mic again. Feature: Features as I explained earlier, it comes with extra options you can read in the description. It also comes with a decent shock mount and a nice wooden box. Just looking at the box it came in made the mic worth buying. Ease of Use: If you can plug something in, then you're good to go in this station. Quality: The mic is pretty sturdy. There are sturdier mics out there, but this comes close to those mics. I'm confident that if I accidently dropped this mic, I could pick it up and start recording again expecting the same quality. Value: For $99 you need to where a ski mask, 'cause you would be stealing from SP. If I hadn't known the price of this mic, just by using the mic, I would have thought the price to be in the 199-299 range. Manufacturer Support: Didn't have to use it yet. I've had the mic for a month now. I gave it a 10 because if I don't have to recieve support from SP, then they've deffinately done their part. The Wow Factor: I would buy another one of these right now if I didn't have about 10 mics at home. Overall: Overall, all I have to say is "get it!" Pros: The output of the mic is not muddy, it is clear, crisp on the high end but not too crisp. It comes with nice wooden box and shock mount. Optional presets on the mic that I found pretty useful. Nice slick design and very sturdy as well. Cons: I don't have any cons yet. If there was one maybe a better shock mount. throw in a xlr cable. i always hated ordering the xlr cable seperately for my mics. i really can't find and cons for this mic at the price it is selling for.
