I’m doing video lessons and would to improve the sound part of the recording. I’m using a Logitech webcam with a Dell desktop computer. Is there a good way to improve this?

I'm also doing Skype lessons (on pedal steel) and I was going to try a good condensor mike into an adequate interface as the audio in, but haven't gotten around toit.

Shure MVi

Though I never tried it, the MVi can be attached to your PC according to their directions. Then, use the mic of your choice.

I agree that the mic on the logitec is not the best for music. I use and Audio technica 2020 USB and it is perfect. The web cam recognizes it as my primary mic so i don't have to reconfigure it my settings every time. In fact the volume setting also remains right where I need it.

Thanks for all these suggestions! I’ll do some research and give it a try.

A sure way to improve the sound with a mic of your choice is to connect it to a USB Audio Interface, like the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, which is about as inexpensive as they come. You can hook a dynamic or a condenser mic (the audio interface usually already has +48V phantom power available).

Blue snowball mic works well. I use it with Audacity.
