Blue Bluebird Microphone Mods

Blue Bluebird

The Blue Bluebird is a nicely built transformerless LDC whose only arguable fault is its relatively bright voicing. The stock capsule is similar to our own RK-12, and seems to benefit from a bit of high-frequency corrective EQ that the Bluebird circuit does not provide.

If you find your Bluebird to be too bright or sibilant for the sources you usually record, we recommend changing the stock capsule for our RK-47.

RK-47 capsule

Replacing the Bluebird's capsule is an easy way to re-voice the microphone. The RK-47 capsule will give the mic a neutral top end, great midrange detail, and a much more balanced sound.
