Blue Microphones Bluebird by MikeTSH
The body of the Blue Bluebird is beautifully constructed, with a sleek silver neck and bottom leading to both the XLR connectors and microphone capsule, with the main body of the microphone colored blue with a rough finish.
The Blue Bluebird has a wonderfully old-school sounding capsule, with less high end than many of similar prices condencer mics. It seems to be a common trend within the low-budget microphone manufacturing community at the moment to add as much high end response to their microphones as possible, which often leaves the microphones sounding thin, brittle and down-right cheap. The Bluebird, however, is a great exception to the rule, with a more vintage-style offering being what Blue have gone for.
The BLUE Bluebird is hardly featured packed - in fact, far from it. As a cardioid (almost hyper-cardioid) microphone with no roll off or pad features, it may deter a few potential buyers. However, for the price, this definitely out-ranks its competitors in the bang for your buck department.
BLUE are known for their offbeat designs and mostly source-specific microphones. However, over the past few years the Bluebird has shown to be a particularly versatile microphone, a great addition to your microphone cabinet and a welcome addition to the BLUE line of microphones.
