First and foremost, the Blueberry has been designed to provide the
commanding, intimate presence associated with the worlds best (and most
expensive) vintage vocal microphones. With its shimmering, detailed highs,
smooth midrange, and minimized proximity effect (a bass boost inherent in all
unidirectional mics), the Blueberry excels at delivering a vocal right to the front of
the mix where it belongs. When processed with limiting and/or compression, as is
standard practice for most pop vocals, tracks recorded with the Blueberry will be
free of pumping, low frequency thumps. Acoustic guitar, hand percussion, drums,
and other critical high end sources also shine in front of the Blueberry, gaining an
extra measure of presence that enables the most delicate sounds to cut through a
mix, even at very low levels.
Designed to fill the needs of the home musician and the professional
alike, the Blueberry includes the Series Two Shockmount and comes
handsomely packaged in its own cherrywood box. Whatever your music, add
a Blueberry to the mix and let your ears feast on the sound.
