Juice Your Vocal Tracks with This Intimate-Sounding Microphone!When it's time to invest in a great all-around large-diaphragm condenser, the Blue Blueberry cardioid condenser microphone is right up your alley. This baby is hand-tuned and tested to bring you warm, pristine, discrete Class A capture and reproduction of whatever instrument you're recording. Talk about versatility; the Blueberry works for a whole host of applications -- drum overheads, vocals and voiceover, guitars, string instruments, wind instruments, horns, and more. A cardioid polar pattern helps keep out unwanted room ambiance, and a maximum SPL of 140 dB allows you to record louder instruments without worrying about distortion.
Intimate Sound to Get Those Vocals Out FrontEvery recording space needs a great all-around large-diaphragm condenser microphone, and that's where the Blueberry comes in. Each take will get you a warm and intimate capture with tight lows and mids. An alluring and slightly airy character in the higher frequencies will add a nice touch of brightness, especially if you're recording vocals, with a presence to help you slice through the mix. Blue's hand-built large diaphragm capsule will keep your capture clean and pristine, and it'll hold its own against much more expensive studio condensers.
Record Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, and Much MoreOne of the main reasons studios collect large-diaphragm condenser microphones is their wide reach of applications. The Blueberry works incredibly well for tracking drums as an overhead or a room mic, vocals, voiceover, brass instruments, string instruments, guitars, hand claps, tambourine, whistling, and even more. A wide frequency response of 22 Hz to 22 kHz gives you a ton of room for recording, and a high maximum SPL of 140 dB offers a lot of tolerance for recording louder instruments. This is a true multipurpose microphone!

BLUE Blueberry Cardioid Condenser MicThe Blueberry consists of a Class A discrete microphone amplifier perfectly chosen to BLUE's single pattern, cardioid, hand-built large-diaphragm capsule. An entry-level microphone, the Blueberry has been designed to fill the needs of the home musician and professional alike. The timbre of the microphone capsule has been tuned to provide the end user with a silky bright and airy top end reminiscent of the best vintage microphones. This provides the engineer a recorded signal, such as a vocal, minus unwanted low-end resonance that can cause a compressor to breathe or pump. The final results are vocals and instruments that sit and blend with the basic track of recorded program material. All BLUE microphone capsules are capable of handling loud volume (SPL), the user may get as close to the microphone capsule as desired.
