Quick Overview

Countless hours of research and development were spent to test and select the most suitable active and passive components. This no compromises process can assure the low noise, high dynamic range and unappreciable distortion of the microphone circuitry...

The Dragonfly

In the 1960's, Mohammed Ali, then know as Cassius Clay, boasted he "Floats like a butterfly, stings like bee." Our knockout punch microphone, the Dragonfly is best described by this famous statement.

Complete with an integrated elastic Shockmount, this class A discrete, transformerless microphone offers a rotating capsule grill that can be positioned in the most difficult of areas. Countless hours of research and development were spent to test and select the most suitable active and passive components. This no compromises process can assure the low noise, high dynamic range and unappreciable distortion of the microphone circuitry. The end result give the Dragonfly a complete sonic neutral electronics with a low output impedance and no side effects from the cable capacitance and load impedance. This way only the capsule determines the sound. The Dragonfly incorporates the BLUE hand-crafted 1" active diameter capsule. For this diaphragm, we have selected a 6 micron mylar film which has been sputtered with a special mixture of pure gold and aluminum. The capsule operating principle is a pressure gradient with the pickup pattern being cardioid. Capsules are measured in out anechoic chamber to provide the end user with a balanced sound for stereo and critical recordings.

The Dragonfly is packaged in an attractive linen box.

 

Bluebird - Sound Takes Flight

With it’s unique look and highly versatile performance, the Bluebird has been designed to deliver the same high-quality, no-compromise audio that Blue users have come to expect. The Bluebird is a large-diaphragm cardioid condenser, utilizing Blue’s renowned microphone technology and Class-A discrete circuit.

In a departure from its normally application-specific designs, Blue engineered the Bluebird to be as versatile as possible, with applications ranging from vocals to electric and acoustic guitars, close-miking of drums, drum overheads, percussion, piano, horns, strings, and any other application where crystal-clear sound quality and detail is of the utmost concern. In addition to the microphone itself, the Bluebird also includes a specially designed shockmount - The BirdCage, and a metal mesh pop filter - the BirdNest. So no matter what your sound, the complete Bluebird package offers today’s musician a top-notch recording experience at an outstanding price — all in one nest!
