The Blue Bluebird is a quality, affordable solution for recording just about anything that makes a sound.

If you’re looking for a value priced large-diaphragm condenser microphone but are staggered by the choices — and these days there are tons of ’em — stop pulling your hair out and start tracking in rich, high fidelity. The Blue Bluebird is an affordable solution for recording vocals, acoustic guitars, drums, percussion, horns, piano, strings… just about anything that makes a sound. Don’t be fooled by its affordable price. This mic absolutely rocks (and sings) on so many sources.

The Blue Bluebird is set at a cardioid pattern and boasts discrete Class A circuitry, making it perfect for vocals, acoustic guitar and directional pointing at the source of an instrument’s sound. Its frequency response is on par with microphones costing much more, but you’d never know it from listening or from looking at it! The Bluebird is one helluva looker with the classic styling Blue Microphones are famous for.

The construction feels sturdy and should stand the test of time. It’s extremely quiet so don’t be afraid to put it up in even the most critical of recording situations. You’ll capture all of the details in full, broad style and start pondering about adding a second Bluebird to your arsenal for stereo recording.

Blue Microphones has put the Bluebird in a beautiful package that screams value. It comes packed in a classic wood case, has a specially-designed shockmount called the Birdnest and a Birdnest metal-mesh pop filter that fits right onto the microphone to help reduce plosives, S’s and such. Top it off with a certificate of authenticity and you’re holding a future classic in your hands. Now let it fly!

      Comments about Blue Microphones Bluebird Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

      For under $1000.00, this is my favorite microphone. The price is great, but when it comes to what matters, it has it all. It is great on acoustic guitar, male and female vocals. I have used this in a bluegrass round situation for a live performance and it worked brilliantly. I can not understate how awesome this microphone is and will sing it's praises until the day I perish. You don't get what you pay for here, you get much, much more.

        It should go without saying that anything Bluebird is going to work beautifully, but this microphone at this price stands out in the pack. Perfect for the home studio, this microphone works best at mid to high ranges and really brings out the best. This works well with both voice and most instruments. This is a perfect all-purpose microphone to have in your personal recording space.

              The Bluebird from BLUE Mics is a fantastic sounding condenser mic for the price. Recording artists looking for an affordable mic with professional sound quality should look no further than this. It can be used for vocals, acoustic instruments and many other studio micing applications. This is a real hands on product review from Ryan@ Sam Ash King of Prussia.

                  The mic records everything great. Vocals, keys, guitars, drums and cymbals. Performs better than mics twice the price. This is where affordability meets versatility. Blue products are always top notch. I am a reviewer for Sam Ash Cleveland.

                    I found the sound of the bluebird spot on. It has a great warmth to any vocals and also serves as a nice room mic for certain applications. Again these seem to be a standard among all home studios. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

                          The Blue Microphones Bluebird Cardioid Condenser Microphone is a very awesome microphone. I would use this to record more high and medium tones than bassy stuff. Woodwinds ad shakers and other light percussion sound awesome on it. The pop filter is very useful too.
