Blue Snowball microphone extremely quiet

I was trying to use my blue snowball microphone for skype the other day and found out it was too quiet.

Anyone have any tips to make it louder?

Thanks!
Here's a sample recording: soundcloud

I have the alsa mixer maxed out:

[nak@arch ~]$ cat /var/lib/alsa/asound.state
<snip...>
state.Snowball {
	control.1 {
		iface MIXER
		name 'Mic Capture Switch'
		value true
		comment {
			access 'read write'
			type BOOLEAN
			count 1
		}
	}
	control.2 {
		iface MIXER
		name 'Mic Capture Volume'
		value 34
		comment {
			access 'read write'
			type INTEGER
			count 1
			range '0 - 34'
			dbmin -3100
			dbmax 300
			dbvalue.0 300
		}
	}
}
