NAMM 2015: Blue Hummingbird Finally Sees the Light of day


At last year’s Winter NAMM, Blue released some very preliminary information about a small diaphragm condenser microphone that, at the time, they were calling Codename: Hampton. Well, about a year later, it is finally seeing a proper unveiling at NAMM 2015, and is now known as Hummingbird. As you’d expect from Blue, Hummingbird has a bit of an unconventional design, but one that serves a good purpose. Its head can be rotated 180 degrees, allowing it to fit into small places easily, much like its namesake.

The Hummingbird features the company’s B1 cardioid capsule, which has proven itself a go-to element for many recordists, on sources such as acoustic guitars, strings, and drum overheads, to name a few. The mic also has an impressive SPL handling of 130 dB, and a quick transient response.
