Blue - Dragonfly is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.


Fast, maneuverable and beautifully engineered, the Dragonfly employs an innovative design

that offers fine tuning and precise placement to please the most discerning recordist,

combined with an ease of use that is without equal among contemporary microphones — and at

a price that’s considerably less than anything in its class. Winner of both the 2001 TEC

Award and an Electronic Musician’s 2001 Editor’s Choice award, the Dragonfly is a unique

pressure-gradient cardioid condenser microphone, employing the Blue’s hand-built

single-membrane large diaphragm capsule coated with a 6-micron mylar film of pure gold and

aluminum. Enclosed within a rotating spherical grille, the capsule can be positioned and

adjusted in the smallest spaces. Complete with an integrated elastic shockmount, the

microphone’s electronics are based on a class A discrete circuit, with a transformerless

output. Its sonic character gives flight to everything from vocals to percussion, electric

guitar and bass, as well as more “difficult” sources such as saxophones and stringed
