The Blue Mics Ball is a unique concept in microphones - a phantom-powered dynamic cardioid microphone.
The hand-built Ball uses a Class A balancing circuit in its output section. This circuit maintains a constant pure-resistive 50-ohm load across the useable frequency spectrum yielding an exceptionally smooth and open sound previously unheard-of in a dynamic mic.
The Ball is capable of handling extremely high SPLs from sources like bass drums, snares, and horns without distortion for extremely clean signals. Ideally suited for studio, stage, broadcast, film or any other applications where reliability, versatility and the utmost sound quality is require. Frequency response: 35Hz - 16kHz. Requires 48V phantom power.
Capture the Heart of What's in Your Head . . .
With BLUE Microphones
BLUE microphones are more than just a recording tool . . . they are an investment in value, quality, and expression. You will display them for their artistic beauty, covet and protect them for their investment value, and treasure them for conveying the heart and soul of any musical recording.
BLUE stands for Baltic Latvian Universal Electronics
— and for the ultimate in quality! Our work speaks for itself. You'll find BLUE microphones are beyond compare as a valuable investment and unsurpassed as a musical production tool. BLUE has its own facility located in Latvia (one of the Baltic states, located outside Russia). At BLUE, we are not interested in cost-effective mass production, which could jeopardize the design quality of our tube and solid state microphones and related products. We design and manufacture all capsules — the heart of the microphone — as well as precision parts, from the smallest screw to the large body shells used for our Bottle microphones. We've researched the needs of engineers and musicians alike, to create an exceptional collection of microphones.
What makes BLUE microphones so unique, and so valuable? Our unique formula. The mylar film of our BLUE hand-built capsules are sputtered with a special, unique-to-BLUE formula of 24-carat gold of absolute pure (99.99%) quality and aluminum. This special film is tensioned to our own hand-built brass backplates, designed and manufactured in our Riga factory. Our formula allows us to achieve the fastest transient response without the sacrifice of low-end frequencies. BLUE considers the capsule to be the heart of the microphone. This most important element is manufactured solely by us and not sourced from another company. This process is crucial to achieving the unique sound quality that is the trademark of a BLUE microphone.
