Description

The Blue Microphones Hummingbird is a versatile, precision-engineered Class A small-diaphragm microphone that unlocks the tonal nuances of your instruments so you can capture the best recordings possible. With a 180-degree rotating head, Hummingbird fits into tight spaces and can nimbly change positions where others can’t.

Featuring a precisely tuned diaphragm and extended frequency response, Hummingbird is the perfect solution for drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano, percussion, or other instruments with fast transients and rich overtones.

Mic Placement Is Everything

Simply rotate Hummingbird’s unique 180° head to place the mic at any angle and discover the tonal nuances of your instrument most mics would leave behind—all without touching the mic stand.

Try this:

Sweep the capsule between the 12th fret and sound hole of acoustic guitars for unmatched guitar tone. Rotate the capsule between the edge of the snare drum and the center of the drumhead for perfect snare sounds. Use two Hummingbird overheads to dial in perfect stereo images for drums and piano.

Premium Blue Capsule

Hummingbird’s precisely tuned cardioid capsule is based on the acclaimed Blue B1 from the interchangeable capsule series—making it perfect for any instrument with fast transients and rich tonal characteristics.

Take Your Sound To New Heights

Hummingbird’s unique sonic signature is perfect for reproducing the sharp attacks and tonal characteristics of nearly any instrument, including drums, acoustic guitars, strings and more. And with no IC’s in the signal path and excellent off-axis rejection, Hummingbird delivers maximum sonic clarity.

Drums—From A Bird’s Eye View

Hummingbird’s agility, sonic precision, and ability to handle high sound pressure levels make it ideal for recording drums. And its 180° pivoting head makes it easier to fit into drum rack spaces and get the perfect angle for overheads.

Suggested Applications

In studio and on stage for drum overheads, close-miking of hi-hat, snare, or toms, acoustic guitar, strings, harp and any other instrument with fast transients and rich overtones.
