Audio - Microphone

Here is, I suspect, a fairly simple question. I have a Soundblaster
16 card in my 486-100, Win 95. My problem is that I have tried
several microphones (including one that listed itself as Soundblaster
compatible) and although they work, the sound sensitivity is poor. I
have to get about an inch from the mic before it picks-up well. I
have turned the microphone slider in the mixer window that comes with
SB16 all the way up and have adjusted the multimedia control under
windows. This is not just a CUseeme problem. I have the same problem
with the sound recorder that comes with Win95. Do I need a preamp for
the microphone or is there a better microphone out there?

Thanks for your help.
