The B&H Bluebird SL Condenser Vocal Microphone and Isolation Solution Kit is a condenser microphone and reflection filter designed to deliver a crisp, controlled sound for vocalists, voice-over artists, and narrators in music production, podcasting, and audiobook recording. It includes a Blue Bluebird SL condenser microphone, a metal five-panel reflection filter, and a sturdy tripod stand to hold the reflection filter and microphone. The Bluebird SL features a large-diaphragm, gold-sputtered capsule with a cardioid polar pattern, a switchable -20 dB pad, and a selectable 100 Hz high-pass filter. The reflection filter utilizes high-density acoustic foam and adjustable side panels to provide variable absorption of room noise and reflections. Mount the mic and filter on the tripod stand, which can be easily adjusted to suit your height.
Featuring a proprietary, hand-crafted capsule, the Blue Bluebird SL is a studio condenser microphone which builds upon its predecessor to provide a precise and clear sound as well as switchable filter and pad settings, ensuring great versatility for varied studio recording applications. 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. Further elevating its professional nature is the shockmount, which absorbs vibrations to inhibit handling and stand noise.
Use the 100 Hz low-cut filter to attenuate bass buildup and increase intelligibility, which is especially important when the mic is close to the source. When miking drum kits or guitar amps, the -20 dB pad is perfect for keeping the sound clear and free of distortion. The mic's cardioid polar pattern rejects a good deal of sound behind the mic, allowing it to pick up less room ambience and background noise than many other polar responses. The Bluebird SL can be connected to any XLR mic input that is capable of sending 48V phantom power.

The RF-5P-B Reflection Filter from Auray is designed to improve the quality of voice recordings captured in your home studio, rehearsal studio or other untreated acoustic environment by absorbing and isolating the microphone from unwanted ambient reflections. By absorbing and diffusing these reflections, the RF-5P-B creates a closer and dryer sound that allows more control over the vocals. It can also be used for other applications such as recording an acoustic guitar or an electric guitar cabinet.
Five punched metal panels and a pyramidal, acoustic foam lining filter ambient noise and help prevent sound from reflecting back into the microphone. The two outermost panels are adjustable, allowing you to control how dry your recording will be.
Whether it's a home studio or a rehearsal studio, for podcasting or broadcasting, the RF-5P-B Reflection Filter is designed to provide a portable solution for improved acoustic isolation.
The RFMS-580 Reflection Filter Tripod Mic Stand from Auray features heavy-duty steel construction and is capable of providing sturdy support to your reflection filter and studio microphone at the same time. The tripod stand design features collapsible legs for convenient storage, a telescoping center column that can be adjusted to reach a maximum working height of 68".
The stand also features nonslip feet for added traction on hard surfaces as well as a 5/8" threaded adapter for attaching a shockmount or mic clip.
