This Bird Sings On Vocals -- And More Patterned after the popular Baby Bottle, the Bluebird is part of Blue's "Essential" line of mid-priced microphones. The outer dimensions and general body shape appear identical to the Baby Bottle; however, the two mics have some key differences. Aside from its periwinkle-blue body in place of the Baby Bottle's black, the Bluebird is the clear winner when it comes to flexibility in the studio. Where the Baby Bottle has an aggressive mid-to-upper range that can preclude its effectiveness at capturing softer or more nuanced performances, the 'Bird sings on delicate acoustic instruments. Try it on acoustic guitar, about eight inches from where the neck joins the body -- or position it two feet above the bridge of a violin or viola. Perhaps most valuable to artists and engineers, the Bluebird is a hit for its ability to capture warm, natural vocals, without the "hyped" high-mids often found in cheaply-made condensers. An ideal choice for home-studio tracking, the Bluebird's tighter-than-typical cardioid pattern works to provide a focused sound on vocals, especially when paired up with a back baffle like SE Electronics' Reflexion Filter.
Pro BLUE Quality for a Project-Studio Price Although its price is within reach for any home recordist, the Bluebird's build quality is indicative of Blue's more expensive offerings. Blue has borrowed from many of its famous application-specific designs to create this mic. Satin nickel plating gives the mic a solid, hefty feeling immediately apparent when you hold it in your hand. A closer look at the specs reveal a rigorous attention to detail not found in other mics of this price range: low self-noise of under 7.5 dB, thanks to the transformerless Class-A discrete amplifier circuit, and a thin gold-sputtered Mylar diaphragm for an impressively sensitive response of 27 mV/Pa. And as all professional mics should, the Bluebird comes in a snazzy wooden box, complete with Blue's specially-designed Birdcage shock mount and BirdNest pop filter. Just add a microphone stand and cable, and you're ready to track some serious vocals -- or just about anything else.
