The en•CORE 100 has taken to the stage and the audience has spoken...


"The price point makes it a good vocal mic to have in situations when multiples are needed. You get good-sounding mics, yet they won't break the bank." Go
"I was hugely impressed with the dexterity of the 100's vocal warmth and definition... I give these microphones my highest recommendation. It's clear: Blue does live microphones right." Go
"My first impression of the en•CORE 100 was that it sounded noticeably richer and fuller and just sounded more natural than the SM58." Go
"These mics are specially tuned for vocals, but work beautifully with instruments as well. A comparison between the typical house mics and the Blue mics found the Blue's to have a more natural, smooth sound." Go
"Calling the en•CORE mics 'ruggedly constructed' is like saying a race-breed Porsche 911 GT3 is a 'sporty' car… something I discovered in the field when the mic stand got knocked over (oh those blues bar gigs!) and the grille suffered nary a dent." Go

"If you are looking for a very decent ‘first’ microphone for vocals, you shouldn't go wrong with the enCORE 100." - Bobby W via Amazon

"Love the look, but also love the way it sounds. I purchased the 100 and have been using it for about a year for live performance. Our band has a full complement of SM58's, like most folks. The Blue gives my vocals a more rounded bottom end, and at the same time, a more lively overall sound than the SM58's. It has a very open top end and is quite smooth, but detailed." - Gary via Musicians Friend

"Before you buy the 58, give this a look." - a zZounds customer

"Being more than impressed with the 'Blue Spark' microphone that I bought for my home studio, I decided to try the encore 100 for live performance use. I am really glad I did. This microphone is a five star product in every aspect. Cosmetically beautiful and sonically amazing, this microphone is made to be extremely durable and its weight feels very substantial in the hand." - Nassaw via Amazon

"This mic turned out to be a handy tool to have in the mic locker! I think I'll be purchasing a few more of these gems!" - Scotty Tunes via Sweetwater

"The construction is very sturdy. It’s built like an old Buick, but looks like a Corvette. It has a truly been a joy using it and based on experience over a year, I'm considering adding an Encore 300 in the future." - Gary via Musicians Friend
