Blue HUMMINGBIRD overview

  • 1Description

Based on the Blue Bottle's B1 cardioid capsule, the Blue Hummingbird is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone with a 180° rotating head, which allows for plenty of flexibility for precise mic placement in tight spaces, without the inconvenience of having to move the mic stand.

Capable of handling 130 dB of SPL and designed to provide a fast transient response with accurate sonic reproduction from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, the Hummingbird is well suited for capturing drum overheads or close-miking most acoustic instruments, from piano to acoustic guitar, and any other instrument with fast transients and rich overtones, in the studio or on stage.

The mic ships with a foam windscreen, a mic clip, and a rigid carry case with foam lining.

    Blue HUMMINGBIRD reviews

    Hummingbird Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acoustic or Nylon string guitar. Excellence in sound. Hearing is believing, when I am happy with the performance in sound capture without having to do a lot of EQ this is good for me. Materials & Construction are first class. Going into a Yamaha MG12xu mixer provides a lot bang for the buck. I would strongly recommend B&H Photo Video Audio for their selection & fast service & Blue for the Hummingbird Microphones. Cheers.
