A unique pivoting head enables free range of motion for fast and precise positioning.

Westlake Village, CA (April 24, 2015) -- Blue Microphones announces the availability of Hummingbird, a versatile and precision-engineered Class A small-diaphragm microphone. With a precisely tuned diaphragm based on Blue’s B1 capsule, Hummingbird is ultra-responsive and delivers extended frequency response, making it the perfect studio and stage solution for drum overheads, acoustic guitar, strings, harp, or any other instrument with fast transients and rich overtones. Hummingbird features an adjustable pivoting head that allows for 180 degrees of rotation so users can set the mic at any angle to unlock the tonal nuances of their instruments.

“With fast transient response, high SPL handling and extended high frequency, Hummingbird is an exceptional small diaphragm microphone. To take it further, we designed the capsule to rotate 180 degrees for easy placement and now you have an undeniable weapon for drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano and more,” said Tommy Edwards, Director of Product Management at Blue. “Like its avian counterpart, the Hummingbird is compact, able to fit precisely into tight spaces, and can nimbly change positions where others can’t.”
