Featuring a proprietary, hand-crafted capsule, the Blue Bluebird SL is a studio condenser microphone which builds upon its predecessor to provide a precise and clear sound as well as switchable filter and pad settings, ensuring great versatility for varied studio recording applications. It utilizes a large, gold-sputtered Mylar diaphragm, replete with a sculpted rear backplate to emphasize resonances at higher frequencies; this creates the clarity of treble, smoothness of midrange, and richness of lows, characteristic of Bluebird microphones, all while allowing sound sources to cut through a mix. Further elevating its professional nature is the shockmount, which absorbs vibrations to inhibit handling and stand noise.
Every component of Bluebird SL is specially designed to deliver crystal-clear tone. The hand-built capsule utilizes a fine, gold-sputtered Mylar diaphragm that delivers superior resonance at higher frequencies to help vocals cut through the mix. The sculpted rear backplate ensures balanced sound across the entire frequency spectrum. Plus, discreet Class-A circuitry maximizes the accuracy of your sound.
With the original Bluebird microphone, Blue set a new standard for modern recording mics. Bluebird SL advances that legacy with refined sonics and versatile switches to capture exceptionally clear and powerful sound that makes ears perk up and listen. Add in an updated design to inspire your best performances, and what you get is a best-selling Essential Series condenser mic.
Bluebird SL is a special mic for every kind of performance. The onboard switchable 100 Hz high-pass filter and -20 dB pad give you the flexibility to track a wide variety of sound sources with nuance and power. Use Bluebird SL to capture a singer's unique vocal character in stunning detail, achieve full-frequency guitar recordings, and more.
