The first time you plug in a BluebirdSL, you’ll get the feeling you should have paid more money.

There’s something about BluebirdSL that makes a singer want to give it their best. Is it the neo-retro styling, or (more likely) the great sound coming back through their cans?

Whatever it is, BluebirdSL is a great choice as either a ‘first’ mic for your home studio, or as an additional flavour to a growing microphone collection.

It comes with a suspension (shockmount), and a wooden storage box. The cardioid condenser capsule provides a detailed sound, particularly in the upper and mid range, while the low end frequencies are rich and add some meat to the sonic salad.

BLUE describe their BluebirdSL as having a “modern crystal-clear sound”, and we agree wholeheartedly.

Here’s what else BLUE has to say:

“Every component of BluebirdSL is specially designed to deliver modern, crystal-clear tone. The hand-built capsule utilises a fine, gold-sputtered Mylar diaphragm that delivers superior resonance at higher frequencies to help vocals cut through the mix. The sculpted rear backplate ensures balanced sound across the entire frequency spectrum. And discreet Class-A circuitry maximizes the accuracy of your sound”

Bluebird SL features:

  • Extended upper clarity with smooth mid frequencies for any voice or instrument
  • Hand-built proprietary large-diaphragm cardioid capsule for full, open sound
  • High-pass filter and -20dB pad for ultimate versatility
  • Works great with home studio USB audio interfaces
