Fast Service Great Product December 1, 2016
Reviewer: Coralee L. from Vineyard Haven, MA United States  
Ordered my mic on a Wednesday night, and even though the website says fast shipping I could hardly believe it when it came just TWO DAYS later! As for the product, although am having a little trouble with my setup, the tone is bright and clear and wonderfully suits my needs. I also snatched this mic up for a bargain, as it was listed on Amazon for upwards of $250. Would definitely purchase from Front End Audio again, the handwritten thank you was a nice touch :)

Solid mic for the money! October 11, 2011
Reviewer: Trevor from Los Angeles, CA  
Great mic for a mic locker of any caliber. Sounds good, has a little "sparkle" in the highs and a pretty smooth mid range. I only ever had one problem with the mic which was a screw that had come loose on the inside and rattled around.

Can't beat it for a first condenser March 26, 2011
Reviewer: Nathan Rabiroff from Belmont, CA United States  
My first LDC was a Bluebird matched with a UA Solo/610 preamp.  The sound has been amazing.  Very crisp and clean and although its response has some color to it (not your definitive transparent mic), it tends to sound good on everything you mic with it.  Personally it has excelled with acoustic instruments (just used it to track Ukulele in a professional studio along side many mics of much higher cost and it was fantastic) as well as light/airy vocals usually from females.  
The only downside is relatively cheap components included.  The shock mount works fine, but is difficult to adjust and seems like it will wear down over the years, especially since there is no case for it, only the mic.  The pop filter is useless and may as well be thrown away.

Overall if you're looking for a budget mic that sounds on par with many mics worth much more, the Bluebird is the way to go (I say this now after working with many of the big hitters (U87, Tele ELAM 250, etc).

Great mic November 11, 2010
Reviewer: Jose E Vargas from Miami, FL United States  
This mic is so clean, is just accurate for any vocal purposes, and even an acoustic guitar. Sounds amazing and it has become my favorite mic when recording vocals.

Warm up your sound August 26, 2010
Reviewer: yuval cohen from Princeton NJ, NJ United States  
It's hard to put the finger on how it does it, but this mic sounds true-to-the-source, yet warms it up. I used it on classical guitar and it brought up the "body" of sound without getting boomy or loosing top end. I also used it on a cajon very successfully.  It is colored sound, for sure, but in a way that's very musical and gives an "acoustic" feel to it, a bit like putting your source in a wooden room, I guess.
