Which Blue and Why?

Looking to ad another mic. I have all the basics covered so I am looking for some color.

Thinking about the BLue mics. they all look great in the marketing hype. so what have you all used and why did or didn'y you like it?

While we're at it is the TLM103 really worth buying?

Like I said I have the basics covered. I am just looking to add another mic, mainly for vocals.

Could be good for either male or female, could be good for high intensity depends on what I find.

I am getting 2 M610 UA mic amp for a little tube flavor on big vocals. Thought maybe I could find a mic that complimented the tube UA well. Something that is really present and smooth.

The BLUE mics are usually very specific in usage to the source sitting in front of them. You may love them or hate them, it's really very subjective. They have their place in the scheme of things sonically, but I wouldn't call them 'workehorses'...like how you can get away with using one mic on many sources like a SM-57 or U47 can. And yes, the TLM103 is very much worth owning...it's a great utility mic for under $1000 and many people seem to like them better than the U87ai even with the lack of polar pattern choices. It would be nice to see a multipattern version in the $1300-$1500 street range, but I doubt that will happen considering how long the mic has been out to the public. Good Luck, I hope this helps.
