I had that same problem! Boosting the gain is important but sometimes the audio fidelity can be horrible. I decided to purchase a new (lightly used) condenser microphone and now I have professional sounding audio.

Alsamixer and the pulseaudio volume controls should help you get the desired effect with your microphone.
