Blue Dragonfly Cardioid Condenser Microphone
 
Fast maneuverable and beautifully engineered the Dragonfly employs an innovative design that offers fine tuning and precise placement to please the most discerning recordist combined with an ease of use that is without equal among contemporary microphones - and at a price thats considerably less than anything in its class.

Winner of both the 2001 TEC Award and an Electronic Musicians 2001 Editors Choice award the Dragonfly is a unique pressure-gradient cardioid condenser microphone employing the Blues hand-built single-membrane large diaphragm capsule coated with a 6-micron mylar film of pure gold and aluminum. Enclosed within a rotating spherical grille the capsule can be positioned and adjusted in the smallest spaces. Complete with an integrated elastic shockmount the microphones electronics are based on a class A discrete circuit with a transformerless output. Its sonic character gives flight to everything from vocals to percussion electric guitar and bass as well as more "difficult" sources such as saxophones and stringed instruments.**Technical Specs*** Transducer Type: Condenser Pressure Gradient* Polar Pattern: Cardioid* Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHz* Sensitivity: 21.0 mV/Pa at 1kHz (1 Pa = 94 dB SPL)* Output impedance: 50 ohm* Rated Load impedance: Not less than 1k ohm* Maximum SPL: 138 dB SPL (2.5k ohm 0.5% THD)* S/N Ratio: 86 dB-A (IEC 651)* Noise Level: 8.0 dB-A (IEC 651)* Dynamic Range: 130 dB (@ 2.5k ohm)* Power Requirement: +48V DC Phantom Power (IEC 268-15)* Weight: 630g* Dimensions: 165mm x 60mm
