    I do not spread over me, everything has been said and said again.
    on the other hand, as can be read in many critical is that the shock mount is not practical, and I totally agree, a kind of screw system that puts three leaden before being properly tight.
    In short I looked to buy a shock mount more convenient, but unfortunately the store I went or not was not tight enough for the bluebird, obviously its diameter is too small compared to the "standard". Apart from this detail, it does its job.
    Regarding anti pop also criticized, I have not tried.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It will soon be one year since I have this mic and so far so good.
    I use it mainly for recording a tenor sax, sometimes acoustic guitar, and percussion-type egg shaker, and also darbuka.
    So yes it is quite versatile, especially because this is my best micro :)

    I'm not really an expert in micro, I do not have much basis for comparison, but I have ears and I find the result with really good sax. A light years away from my other microphone, SM57 (it's not very comparable I know).

    The value for money is excellent for me, and I think remake that choice. It is sold as versatile and so far I have not put in default.
    I already lorgnai the side of Blue in a moment, but what mainly motivated my purchase is a promotion where they offered a further 100 for the purchase of a bluebird :)

    I was looking for a good microphone large diaphragm too expensive to catch votes.

    For the price range the quality is great, the sound is clear, open, bright.

    Suitable to all kind of voice it seems

    He even served to record a cello in a church, the sound turned out amazing!
    seen in the clip elsewhere


    OVERALL OPINION

    I used a little over a year

    I ssay other models before but this was to be around € 100 and the sound was not very precise or above 400 € which was out of my budget.

    I love the unusual look (bottle), and especially its clarity.

    After careful, it tends to exaggerate sibilance on certain voices, light and Esser is set ;)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Accessories, however, are really bad. I will be silent on the pop filter which is just decorative. The suspension system is pretty dismal. It involves screwing the microphone on the base metal hanger. In this way, we obtain a metallic continuity that will end the foot of the body of said micro micro. Perfect if you have the misfortune to tap tempo foot by registering. Means well "poc-poc" ...
    Moreover, the screw joint support is fragile. Very fragile. Mine broke after three months of use. No remedy: it is necessary to buy the device for all ... 120 €!, Or resolve to use large rolls of scotch. Fortunately, there are supports "generic" for € 15 which fit perfectly.

    Q4: Although the value taken is more than adequate, I would hesitate long before you do this choice.

    as already stated, condenser microphone, versatile voice, instruments

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have 2 years, I tested some models cheaps or more expensive prodipe, akg, neumann ..

    I use the bluebird for recording voice, the sound is clear and precise enough to be mixed Equalisation and carefree. it swells actually a little bass (proximity effect?), and a high pass at 80-100Hz will be mandatory on vocals, as indicated in a previous post. but I wanted above all that gives me mik taken precise and dynamic, it supports very well.

    value for money I think is excellent ... there's nothing better at the same price?

    Otherwise I could test the bluebird on several sources, and ultimately I find it very good for female vocals and acoustic guitars. He gave me good results also on transplanted into clean amp. on the other hand of male voices I do not like it, I have not tested millions of votes but I am tested on a dozen, each time I was disappointed, mixing it jammed! Whatever my voice on it goes but it must be because I have a voice crapper! (Oh yes I tested also on violins but I do not remember most of the result).
    Anyway regarding the quality / price I think it is hard to beat ...

    Supplied with a suspension mtallique and dedicates a pop filter.
    Capsule handmade, hand-mounted microphone.

    Here, no CHARACTERISTICS worthy of a dashboard of A380. It's just a microphone, without high-pass filter or pad, or directional 1387.

    In the CATEGORY microphones mark "confidential", it is in the range between, there is no gimmick, no frills. It picks up sound, the colors may be a little bit and translates it into electrical impulses. Point.

    Note, an allowable pressure allowing a lot of uses brutal (like scratch amp, wind instruments). The low noise and high output trs can use it best to grant reserve of gain prampli and use it to record much numriques Defines Given the limited resources of a homestudiste.

    3-year warranty, it inspires confidence plutt heavy trs well finished, it is even provided in a bobot wooden box like a bottle of pif.

    The suspension is not bad, convenient way to install the microphone but it does its office. The pop filter is against rev (too) small: 6.5 cm Diameter!

    Obviously, we can not assume that standards are objectively CHARACTERISTICS but the quality of construction, design (it is beautiful and plutt original) and quality components make it a microphone tr s well made. The fact that it comes with a kit including suspension and pop filter is trs sympa!

    OVERALL OPINION

    The sound is fairly neutral but lgant. Rac but not typ I think it is appropriate for many applications. Its transparency is both a quality and a default. Personally, I opt for the microwave because its transparency and neutrality make it versatile trs.

    For voice, mdiums are well rendered, and further Retailer while the highs are not too aggressive and prcis. In the tilt a little more bass appear, adding a nice roundness. I think it's for this application it is best expressed in view of my range (plutt baritone).

    On acoustic guitars, it is well to conventional trs, reflecting well the sweetness of sound. A small qualisation in between can improve sound good dj trs and transferring the low frequencies and rsons tufts. The folks there Retailer much treble while retaining fine mdiums and a low round and soft.

    On one occasion amp scratch, I did try that once on a 212 and alnico c'tait not bad at all. Having just dug this application, I complterai this post when I have enough of Contents to make me a little advice prs goal.

    Less than 250 from our German friends, it is almost given in view of its quality manufacturing and its rendering. Its Versatile is great and really suits me perfectly.

    Pros:
    + Qualit construction
    + Rendering remarkable
    Kit + support
    + Design
    Report + Q / P terrible

    Ngatifs points:
    Filter pop-nano
    -Suspension impractical
    CHARACTERISTICS-lgres (there are more comprehensive but more expensive)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two years. I am very happy for its price and what it can do.
    A pair atmosphere battery can be really stylish, or even on percu! After I like it for female voices and acoustic guitars. But we must not kid ourselves, there are much better pickups in the positives of the bluebird is good but not touch them at less than 1000 euros.
    This mic is great for small budgets that already have a 57 or an M88 or other references of cheap dynamic mics and studio wanting a little wider membrane possessed!
