  • Excellent Mic

    As reviewed by T on 9/3/2010

    I was deciding between the blue bluebird and the blue baby bottle. psychologically I could not get past the hundred dollar difference and I assumed the blue bottle was worth the increase in price. My assumption was not accurate. Both mics sound great, however, the blue bottle sounds like a lot of mics I have heard before, while the blue bird has a unique tone of its own. The blue bottle is a much "hotter" mic and it tends to break up a lot easier, it kind of has a tube thing going on. The blue bird is a lot more natural and has a true to life sound, in other words its not trying to be anything, it just is, and that is where it works beautifully. I will mention this mic is extremely tight sounding and has low noise, you will be impressed. The bluebird has a lot more clarity and detail than the blue bottle, while the blue bottle has more full and bassy tone. The bluebird is an amazing mic for the money. One thing to remember don't ever use any mic without a channel strip, your quality will go up ten fold. Buy this mic if you are on a budget I tried a ton and this mic sounds like some higher end mics, no joke. I am not sure how they made this mic with a $$$ price tag, it is very impressive. Don't waste time, just buy it.

  • Worth Twice the Price

    As reviewed by Paisley Underground on 3/19/2011

    I recently picked up a Bluebird for my home studio. This is quite a little condenser mic, and for the price, in my opinion it's impossible to beat the value. Like all Blue mics, it's appearance is striking and stylish. As soon as you remove it from it's case you can tell that it's solidly built. It comes with a case, shock mount and pop screen. Because of previous problems with the former shock mount, Blue redesigned it such that the mic is threaded around the outside of the cable connection, and screws the shock mount - a fantastic redesign. I use this particular mic exclusively for vocals and it performs with mics that cost multiples of it's price standing on it's own. I run this through a TC Helicon Vocalist Live right into a Mackie mixer. Fantastic results. Highly recommended.
