Thanks for sharing all the solid advice @ed.brooks - besides the fact that you have Alex shopping around and wanting for us to purchase new gear for #RefreshFriday. I purchased the Yeti Blue mic a few years ago. It has a great sound to it but it picks up EVERYTHING, especially if it's on the same surface. There's no way of quieting the click't clack sound from the keyboard when typing. For this reason I wouldn't recommend it.
