    Product Description

    The Stage One is Blue’s most accessible Class A discrete solid state mic with a foundation for interchangeable capsules. Precision-designed and hand-assembled, the Stage One includes Blue’s highly-acclaimed B8 cardioid capsule. Compared to similar mics, the Stage One has a very low self noise specification (< 7.5 dB) and a very high output level (+12dBV), making it the perfect choice for today’s high sample rate/deep word length digital platforms.

    Instead of integrated circuits (chips), the Stage One employs a transformless Class A discrete amplifier circuit to ensure the most accurate and noise-free signal possible, with minimal distortion and coloration. The Stage One is an ideal mic for recording virtually any sound source. In addition to the mic, the Stage One also includes custom spider shockmount.
