The Cactus Studio Tube Microphone from Blue is a multi-pattern tube condenser microphone designed for professional vocal and instrument recording. The output stage is designed around a single, hand selected sub-miniature vacuum tube. The vacuum tube delivers the warmth and detail of a pristine analog signal without coloration and noise. The tube circuit is Class A and fully discrete, eliminating noise generated by integrated circuitry.
A multi-pattern version of the renowned B7 (Bottle) capsule is at the forefront of the signal path. The B7 is a large diaphragm, single backplate capsule with a sonic character that accentuates mid-frequencies and retains natural highs, resulting in a smooth, warm, colorless signal. The Cactus features 9 user selectable polar patterns. Variations of cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure of 8 are all accessible on the included Cactus power supply. The Cactus power supply features a multi-pin input and standard 3-pin XLR output.
