      Comments about Blue Reactor:

      I bought a pair of these when B&H had them on sale---I wish I would have bought three (Decca Tree). Just a great sounding, noise-free Blue mic, at a price of other entry-level mult-pattern mics. Unbeatable deal from B&H. The packaging, case, accessories, info & support just sweetened the deal. The shockmount appears to be the improved version---sturdy and stable. I don't really agree with the design concept from the standpoint of placement utility but, boy, what a beatifully crafted piece of metal (don't expect to use anything but a quality boom stand with it). Either you love or hate the looks but there would be much broader consensus on the quality of the sound this mic puts out. If it goes on sale again, treat yourself!

      Comments about Blue Reactor:

      The sound of this mic is absolutely fantastic. It has a completely wide-open sound, but requires decent mic technique when recording vocals as the proximity effect is very pronounced in cardoid mode. Also recorded a few acoustic guitar tracks with it, and it sounds equally as good. Its got a great high-end shimmer or airiness to it, but by no means sounds shrill. Auditioned the Reactor against a TLM-103 on a couple vocalists (2 females and one male), and all three times the vocalists chose the Reactor - which was a bit surprising.Probably going to purchase another one for stereo recording in the future. For the price (especially at B&H), and given its a multi-pattern mic, I can't think of a better microphone.

      Comments about Blue Reactor:

      I love the build quality of this mic. It is better than expected. The weight is a bit heavy but I can appreciate that especially when it's in the shock mount because the weight helps stable it in the bouncy mount.

      The sound quality is awesome and the multi-pattern feature is a must.
