USA - At NAMM 2017, Blue announced the newly updated and enhanced Essentials Series now featuring Spark SL, Bluebird SL and Baby Bottle SL.
Taking their most popular microphone line one step further, Blue advances each mic with a new streamlined build and refined sonics, along with a versatile 100Hz high-pass filter and -20dB pad. The enhanced Essentials Series provides the flexibility to track a wide variety of sound sources with nuance and power. The newly updated Essentials Series is now available at Guitar Center and Musician’s Friend, and coming soon to Sweetwater, Sam Ash, Long & McQuade Canada and other authorized retailers worldwide.
“We’re excited to take the legacy of Baby Bottle, Bluebird and Spark one step further,” said John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones. “These very popular and trusted mics serve creators in every situation, from the home studio to the professional mic locker. The new models were designed to enhance their distinct sounds and give customers greater control and flexibility. Even the newly updated designs were fine-tuned to inspire creativity.”
Building on the success of the original Baby Bottle, the newly refined SL model provides superior sound with vibrant warmth and clarity to capture the true character of each instrument and performer. Baby Bottle SL also features an updated design that looks great in any studio.
With the original Bluebird microphone, Blue set a new standard for modern mics. Bluebird SL advances that legacy by providing “exceptionally transparent, powerful and versatile sound”.
Spark SL offers “incredible clarity and presence, plus a completely new visual design”. At the heart of Spark SL’s sound is Blue’s custom JFET design, which ensures the backplate of the microphone capsule is evenly charged. Spark SL also features discreet Class-A circuitry to maintain a crystal-clear signal. Spark SL’s incredible flexibility makes it easy to capture the detail of any voice or instrument.
