Blue Dragonfly Large-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone with Rotating Capsule
Dragonfly is a handcrafted Class A large-diaphragm condenser microphone that gently accentuates the silky highs and defined bottom end of extended range instruments to thicken thin sound sources. Featuring an innovative rotating head design, Dragonfly lets you make pinpoint adjustments and capture your instrument’s true tone. It’s ideal for vocals, drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano and more. With a fast, maneuverable, and precision-engineered design, Dragonfly is a whole new classification of microphone.
TAXONOMY OF TONE
Dragonfly’s superbly detailed sound comes from its silky and extended high end, contoured midrange and enhanced low end. These three tonal aspects make the Dragonfly microphone uniquely suited for tracking vocals, acoustic guitar, drum overheads and other high-frequency instruments. Dragonfly also excels in recording difficult sound sources like brass and woodwinds.
SPECIALIZED ROTATING HEAD
Years of evolution—and meticulous design—resulted in Dragonfly’s unique rotating head. Simply turn the head to experiment with mic placement, make adjustments on the fly, and record in all the spots you’ve never been able to reach with traditional mics.
Here are some examples:
- Rotate the capsule between the 12th fret and sound hole of an acoustic guitar to dial in perfectly balanced sound
- Find the sweet spot of drums, percussion or any instrument in seconds
- Set perfect playing positions for brass, woodwind and orchestral instruments
