Dragonfly Large Diameter Cardioid Condenser Mic Dragonfly Large Diameter Cardioid Condenser Mic


The Dragonfly generates a silky extended top-end while gently accentuating the lower frequencies that thicken thin signal sources. Enclosed within a rotating spherical grill, the capsule can be positioned and adjusted in the smallest of spaces. This innovative design offers fine-tuning and precise placement to please the most discerning recordist, combined with an ease of use that is without equal among either vintage or contemporary microphones. The Dragonfly is ideally suited for high-frequency sources like alto and soprano vocals, acoustic guitar, drum overheads, electric guitar, and saxophone.

the Dragonfly is a pressure-gradient cardioid condenser microphone, employing Blue’s single- membrane large diaphragm capsule. This hand-tuned and tested capsule is covered by a select 6-micron mylar film, sputtered with a mixture of gold and aluminum. Enclosed within a rotating spherical grill, the capsule can be positioned and adjusted in the smallest of spaces. This innovative design offers fine-tuning and precise placement to please the most discerning recordist, combined with an ease of use that is without equal among either vintage or contemporary microphones. The Dragonfly’s electronics are Class A discrete, with transformerless output. In plain English, this means that the sound which has arrived at the diaphragm and has been converted to electrical energy (transduced) is then amplified as accurately as possible, with minimal coloration and absolutely no integrated circuits (AKA — “IC’s”) in the signal path. Thus, the Dragonfly’s overall sonic character is superbly detailed and pleasing to the ear, making it an ideal microphone for recording vocals, drums and percussion, electric guitar, bass and any acoustic instrument including “difficult” sources like saxophones and stringed instruments.
