Blue Microphones BluebirdPublished on 01/06/13 at 11:39
BLUE Bluebird is a Studio Condenser Microphone that can be used for recordings.

It uses a condenser technology that captures a wide dynamic range and a rich sound complete in subtones and overtones.

OVERALL OPINION

The thing that I like most about it is how well it captures the recording, the sound provided can be used in pro recordings and get that rich , full sound that you hear on those amazing studios.

There is another detail that I can't ignore , the details consist on the design provided , which is completely unique and weird, but don't get fooled, this microphone is a bomb and so it's the recording.

There is another detail that I can't ignore , the details consist on the design provided , which is completely unique and weird, but don't get fooled, this microphone is a bomb and so it's the recording.
That blue , shiny surface changes the whole atmosphere when you're working with this microphone.
Something that really blew my mind, was the fact that this product doesn't has any off/ on switches , so it's basically very simple and straight-forward which I enjoyed so much.

This microphone has tight cardioid pickup pattern that boots the quality of the vocal recordings , well-balanced midrange and extended highs that make a huge difference in terms of texture and tone.

This product also has a specially-designed BirdCage shock mount and a BirdNest metal mesh pop filter which make this product a keeper.

My opinion about the value of the price is decent , this microphone doesn't cost much , around 300 $ , however the unique design and the simplicity of this product is worth the money without a doubt.

Precision and quality of sound is great, the recording sound complete in terms of frequency range , it captures all the necessary colors in the recording which make a huge difference.

I've tried many condenser microphones, however this is one of the greatest concerning range price.

Knowing what I know , I would buy this microphone again.

"Record it all"

Blue Microphones BluebirdPublished on 11/13/12 at 23:02
The Blue Microphones Bluebird is a large diaphragm microphone that has a cardioids polar pattern, it comes with a shock mount and pop filter. I was in search of a microphone that could be a do it all type of microphone and record anything that I wanted to use it with. I did a lot of looking around online for a microphone with these specs and came across the Bluebird. Once I had the chance to start using it after I received it I was shocked by how good it sounded for this price. This microphone is very well built as well, it seems like it could hold up for a long time. I have been using this microphone for a year now and it still looks brand new.

OVERALL OPINION

The frequency range of the BlueBird is 20 Hz to 20 kHz with an impedance of 50 ohms. Since I purchased this microphone I have been able to record vocal, guitar, and brass instruments with it and get a great sound with all of them. This is the perfect microphone for the at home musician, it will give you studio quality in the comfort of your own home. It has saved me a lot of money from having to go to the studio so much.
Blue Microphones also makes a few other microphones that I am now using that are pretty good, but the BlueBird is the best for the money. The sound quality is warm and clear, and it really does not matter to much what your set up looks like as far as having a treated room or not. You can use this microphone in a padded room with wall treatments or a living room and it will still sound great while not picking up noise you don’t want it to pick up like a background TV or outside noises.
This microphone is amazing and I am so glad that I purchased it, I do not regret my decision at all and getting this microphone has made me go out and purchase other Blue Microphones.

"High performance and versatility for the home studio"

Blue Microphones BluebirdPublished on 03/21/11 at 22:39
Blue's Bluebird microphone is a condenser with a cardioid pattern and a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency range.
This mic has a high SPL rating (138 db, if I'm not mistaken) which makes it versatile enough to handle vocals, close micing of drums, electric or acoustic guitars and just about anything else you could use if for.

The Bluebird is aimed at the home studio crowd, as it's one of the the less expensive mics in the Blue collection. It is designed by Blue, but built overseas. This is a very high quality and great sounding mic though. A wooden, foam padded case and metal mesh pop-filter are included with this microphone.

This is a very high quality and great sounding mic though. A wooden, foam padded case and metal mesh pop-filter are included with this microphone.

I tested the Bluebird first on vocals and acoustic guitar, using a presonus Firestudio and Garageband and the results were excellent. On vocals the Blue sounds rich and deep. In fact the low end that this thing picks up is very apparent when listening back to my tracks. My singer is a male with a deep voice and he has never sounded so rich and complex as he did using the Bluebird. The included metal pop filter didn't seem to benefit the sound much, but we have other ones so no big deal.
Acoustic guitars were very airy, full and rich as well. Depending on where I positioned the mic in relation to the higher frets or the sound hole, I was able to get the desired amount of low end and top end sparkle.

I then tried something not always done with a condenser. I cranked up my Mesa Dual Rec to a nice healthy volume and positioned the speaker about an inch from the cabinet grill, and lined it up with the edge of the dust cap where it meets the speaker cone. The results were awesome to say the least! Big and chunky chords and riffs played back just as they felt in the room while playing. There were no phasing issues or nasal qualities that can sometimes be heard when I mic up my cab with my shure sm57.

I honestly don't know why more guitarists and producers don't mic overdriven guitar amps with condensers. There was no finicky sweet spot to find like some dynamics, and the sound was so natural and warm and big.
My band will begin recording a full-length later this year. We have a few nice mics to choose from, but I think my secret weapon will be the Bluebird on my guitar cab! You just have to be careful when dialing in your low end so it doesn't flub up the guitar sound. But then again, that's what high and low pass filters are for:)


OVERALL OPINION


I can't recommend the Bluebird highly enough! From the working musician, to the home studio owner or semi-pro, this mic is a great addition to any collection and is versatile enough to be put to work on nearly any instrument.

The Blue Microphones Bluebird is a condenser microphone made for use in the recording studio and I wouldn't recommend using it anywhere else.  It has a cardioid polar pick up pattern and is suppose to pick up signals ranging from 20 Hz to 20 KHz.  It has a similar look to the Blue Kiwi, but is a less superior microphone designed more for home studios.

OVERALL OPINION

I've used the Blue Microphones Bluebird a number of times for recording sessions at my friend's home studio, although I do not own one myself.  While I definitely like the sound of this microphone and it has a lot of uses, I already have enough condenser microphones in my collection.  This mic is suitable for all sorts of......

OVERALL OPINION

I've used the Blue Microphones Bluebird a number of times for recording sessions at my friend's home studio, although I do not own one myself.  While I definitely like the sound of this microphone and it has a lot of uses, I already have enough condenser microphones in my collection.  This mic is suitable for all sorts of applications including vocals, acoustic piano, acoustic guitar, and horns amongst other things.  I like using it best for acoustic instruments but I would recommend experimenting to see what will work best for you and this is definitely a versatile mic.  If you have a pair of them they will probably work as room mics or drum overheads as well, although I haven't tried this myself.  I've become a big supporter of Blue Microphones as they have a really impressive line of microphones ranging all over the price range.  This is one of the cheaper microphones that Blue has to offer, but is still a high quality mic even if it isn't as good as some of their high end mics.  I trust Blue all the way with microphones and there aren't any complaints that I have about the Bluebird as it sounds great and is set at a great price.  Overall, the Blue Microphones Bluebird is perfect for the home studio owner looking for a great mic that doesn't cost too much.  This is one of the best bang for your buck mics out there.
