What We Think
The Blue Mics Blueberry is a unique mic that stands on its own. Blue set out to make a mic that is tailored to recording vocals, and they did a solid job in my opinion. I have always found Blue Mics to be character pieces, and the Blueberry is no different. It has a clear, yet soft top, edgy upper mids, full think low mids, and a nice rounded off bottom. A well detailed a present character that thickens a vocal just right to give it a presence that sits it atop a mix. Matched with the right solid state pre, this mic is sure to give you great sounding vocal tracks, and it actually sound really good on lead guitar too!

The Blueberry is a mic that was a mystery to me until I gave it a fair chance. When I first threw it up in front of a vocalist it appeared thin sounding and lacking "fulness". But after reading a review like this I tried it about 3-4 inches from the singer's lips and WOW!. I realized my new mic was THE sound I had been searching for for that famous vocal sound. Since then I've found it useful on flute, acoustic guitars, as a beautiful sounding room mic for drums and on some percussion instruments as well. Plenty of presence without being overly sibilant, and TONS of air, but when used up-close and personal, with more than enough weight and character to run side-by-side with the German Heavyweights. Give the Blueberry a chance and you may discover you've found a new partner in the quest for great tracks.
I've recently been going through mic's trying to figure out which is best suited for my voice. So far my journey has included a Kiwi, AT4040, Rode K2, Baby Bottle, Bluebird, Mojave MA201, and TLM49. The short of it is that all of these mic's sound fantastic, some more then others, but I finally settled on the Blueberry. Sounds fantastic and you can really get close up in it. Highly recommended!
I wanted something to provide contrast to my SM7b on my baritone and slightly rough voice. It has very musical and pleasant presence that is not harsh and gives me a lift in a mix. You have to get up close to it and you can't move much. I get just enough proximity to compliment my voice without boominess or need to eq to get the right sound in my headphones. It sounds great with my UA 6176 and to give you an idea of what I mean by this mic not being harsh - it sounds great through my very revealing and un-forgiving DACS Clarity for when I want things tracked cleanly. Personally, I find it to not be at home for general mic purposes unless it's quite close to the source so it gets a 4, but it has not left the studio since the first day I tried used it. I've only used it on myself, but I would wager that it sounds very good on singers with many tone colors. Also singers with a lot of dynamics since it seems to respond linearly at higher volumes. Summary: Me Likey.
