Featuring a proprietary, hand-crafted capsule, the Blue Bluebird SL is a studio condenser microphone which builds upon its predecessor to offer a switchable 100 Hz high-pass filter and a -20 dB pad, thus ensuring a precise and nuanced sound. It utilizes a large, gold-sputtered Mylar diaphragm, replete with a sculpted rear backplate to emphasize resonances at higher frequencies; this creates the clarity of treble, smoothness of midrange, and richness of lows characteristic of Bluebird microphones, all while allowing sound sources to cut through a mix.

The Bluebird SL offers a cardioid polar pattern, giving you a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz—more than enough to record vocals, pianos, stringed instruments, and more. An SPL of 138 dB allows the microphone to capture a wide swath of dynamic material without damaging elements of the microphone. The microphone requires 48V phantom power to run, provides a dynamic range of 126.3 dB, and includes both a custom shockmount and a wooden storage box.

Key Features at a Glance
  • Emphasized upper clarity with smooth mid frequencies for voices and instruments
  • Hand-built, large-diaphragm cardioid capsule
  • High-pass filter and -20 dB pad to promote versatility
  • Suitable for use with home-studio interfaces (USB, Thunderbolt, or otherwise)
