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!

    This Mic is a Great mic for Professional Musicians. I have music up so you can hear the clarity and all im using is the mic and a mixer with phantom power... I use a preamp but its Great even without a separate preamp. [@]

          you can use this mic for anything and it can always sound great with the right placement. i use it for everything, voice, egtr, acgtr, piano, organ, upright bass, sideways bass, flute, sax, room mic, overheads, snare drums. cant say its 'best' at any one of those things, its great on all. thanks for lowering the price a couple months after i bought it at 500 bux. now i can get a second.
