Blue Microphones - Dragonfly (Condenser Microphone)

Blue Microphones' Dragonfly is a transformerless cardioid large diaphragm Class A design with integrated elastic shock-mount. The sonic character is neutral, the capsule pivots for versatile positioning. 48 Volt phantom power is required.

Complete with an integrated elastic Shockmount, this class A discrete, transformerless microphone offers a rotating capsule grill that can be positioned in the most difficult of areas. Countless hours of research and development were spent to test and select the most suitable active and passive components.

This no compromises process, can assure the low noise, high dynamic range and unappreciable distortion of the microphone circuitry. The end result give the Dragonfly a complete sonic neutral electronics with a low output impedance and no side effects from the cable capacitance and load impedance. This way only the capsule determines the sound.

The Dragonfly incorporates the BLUE hand-crafted 1" active diameter capsule. For this diaphragm we have selected a 6 micron mylar film which has been sputtered with a special mixture of pure gold and aluminum. The capsule operating principle is a pressure gradient with the pickup pattern being cardioid. The dragonfly is packaged in an attractive linen.
