I have been fascinated with BLUE mics for some time now, and was looking for the right opportunity to jump in and try one. I got the Dragonfly at Guitar Center for just under 700. The sales rep discounted me because it was the display model, and because I am a regular customer.

I love the sound of the Dragonfly. It's clean, crisp, and still full with just the right amount of low end. You can't beat its positionability. In case you haven't seen it (and you really should look it up, it's quite unusual looking), it has a long body with a floating round capsule head that is wonderfully positionable for different sounds and applications. My acoustic guitar sounds awesome in this mic. Plus, it grabs the sound of any electic guitar cabinet and produces every nuance faithfully. I'm not big on this mic for male vocals, but I've heard some women who sound spectacular with the Dragonfly.

A little price for an amature like myself. Still, it's a worthwhile investment for the future. This will be a classic mic.

While I've already given a hint at what the mic looks like, let me just add that it feels solid. It comes with its own built in shock mount. I'm hoping that the moving head of the mic will maintain its quality for years to come.

I don't know what kind of bucks you have to shell out, but this mic is worthy of your investment. I wouldn't recommend it for your basic beginner mic cabinet, but it should be your first choice when taking things to the next level. I plan on adding a Kiwi next. In the meantime, the BLUE Dragonfly WILL NOT dissapoint you in the least bit. Plus, it's a whole lot of fun to use and is quite eye catching to look at (why looks are important, I don't know, but this is one cool looking mic).
