Winner of Electronic Musicians 2000 Editors Choice Award for Best Microphone the Blueberry consists of a Class A discrete transformer based microphone amplifier perfectly chosen to compliment our cardioid pattern hand- built large diaphragm capsule.
First and foremost the Blueberry has been designed to provide the commanding intimate presence associated with the worlds best (and most expensive) vintage vocal microphones. With its shimmering detailed highs smooth midrange and minimized proximity effect (a bass boost inherent in all unidirectional mics) the Blueberry excels at delivering a vocal right to the front of the mix where it belongs. When processed with limiting and/or compression as is standard practice for most pop vocals tracks recorded with the Blueberry will be free of pumping low frequency thumps. Acoustic guitar hand percussion drums and other critical high end sources also shine in front of the Blueberry gaining an extra measure of presence that enables the most delicate sounds to cut through a mix even at very low levels.Handsomely packaged in its own cherrywood box the Blueberry has been designed to fill the needs of the home musician and professional alike. Whatever your music add a Blueberry to the mix and let your ears feast on the sound.**Technical Specs*** Transducer Type: Condenser Pressure Gradient* Polar Pattern: Cardioid* Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHz* Sensitivity: 20.0 mV/Pa at 1kHz (1 Pa = 94 dB SPL)* Output Impedance: 150 ohm* Rated Load Impedance: Not less than 1k ohm* Maximum SPL: 140 dB SPL (2.5k ohm 0.5% THD)* S/N Ratio: 86 dB-A (IEC 651)* Noise Level: 9.0 dB-A (IEC 651)* Dynamic Range: 131 dB (@ 2.5k ohm)* Power Requirement: +48V DC Phantom Power (IEC 268-15)* Weight: 520g* Dimensions: 235mm x 50mm x 30mm
