Product DescriptionThe Dragonfly from BLUE puts transformerless, Class A condenser tone right where you need it, thanks to the swiveling capsule. Response from 20Hz-20kHz captures all your tone with mellow warmth. Includes elastic shockmount and case.
In the 1960s, Mohammed Ali, then known as Cassius Clay, boasted he "floats like a butterfly, stings like bee." BLUE's knockout punch microphone, the Dragonfly, is best described by this famous statement. Complete with an integrated elastic shock mount, 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 gives the Dragonfly complete sonic neutral electronics with 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 handcrafted 1 in. active diameter capsule. For this diaphragm they 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 box.
