Blue - Bluebird SL (Condenser Mic)

In a departure from its normally application-specific designs, Blue engineered the Bluebird to be as versatile as possible.

Designed for applications ranging from vocals and electric and acoustic guitars, to close-miking of drums, drum overheads, percussion, piano, horns, and strings, virtually any application is enhanced by the Bluebird's crystal-clear sound. In addition to the microphone itself, the Bluebird includes a specially designed shockmount and metal mesh pop filter.

No matter your sound, the complete Bluebird package offers today's musician an astounding recording experience – all in one nest! Includes wooden case, pop filter, and shock mount.
