The Blue Microphones Kiwi Microphone and Robbie Microphone Preamp represented some of the best sound and highest level of technology Blue has to offer.  World-class vocal recordings delivered!

Kiwi

Featuring Blue’s world renowned B6 capsule, the Kiwi delivers the detail of its sonic signature all at once with lots of top end (without being too in your face!), along with lots of mids and bottom end, without being too forward. Designed to set the standard for solid state microphones, the Kiwi yields lush vocals, stunning acoustic guitar and gorgeous piano sounds from nine different polar patterns (Omni, Cardioid, Figure of eight and everything in between). This is the Blue microphone.

All of us are unique in our own ways. Our personalities and facial features let us stand apart from one another. At BLUE our goal is to achieve individual personalities for each of our microphones. Our top of the line Class A Discrete model, The Kiwi delivers just that. Capsule patterns of Cardioid, Figure of 8, Omni and selections in between for a total of nine different choices. This is achieved in a careful, unique manner using our BLUE double backplate capsule. These unique capsules are measured in our anechoic chamber for the optimum performance. Mounting to the Kiwi microphone amplifier is provided by our mold injected rubber stem to help isolate unwanted rumble. Additional protection from low end rumble is provided by the use of our elastic spider type shockmount. This microphone provides the recordist's with many options for the most critical of all recordings.

Robbie

Simplicity of design. Purity of sound. Robbie is Blue's Class-A discrete tube microphone and instrument preamplifier. All of the technical quality and design innovation that goes into our line of award-winning microphones has been engineered into making Robbie the finest tube preamp available today. With no ICs and only the highest-quality discrete components from input to output, Robbie is one of the quietest (-131 dB EIN @ 50 ohms) and most detailed (THD 0.006%) tube preamps available today. It features audiophile-grade ultra low noise metal film resistors and polystyrene capacitors, and provides the user with the best of both worlds: an electronically-balanced, fully discrete input stage, tube gain stage (ECC88 twin triode), and an electronically-balanced solid-state output stage. There is no switching crossover distortion anywhere in the completely balanced audio signal path. And if that's not enough, Robbie achieves and amazing 34dB headroom before clipping! Designed from the ground up, this limited production mic pre is like nothing else commercially available today.

Elegance and simplicity are the driving forces behind our design philosophy. Robbie is no exception. The front panel features only a large backlit potentiometer (gain) and 1?4 hi-Z instrument input. On the back, you’ll find the power cable input, power switch, balanced XLR mic input, balanced XLR line output, polarity switch, -20 dB pad, input selector switch (mic/instrument) and phantom power on/off.
