Capture The Most Subtle Sounds
The Blue Cactus Tube Condenser Microphone is a professional multipattern condenser microphone featuring polar patterns including Cardioid, Omni, and Figure-8, to allow you to achieve the best quality for your specific recording scenario. The famous, hand built large diaphragm capsule allows the Cactus to pick up even the most subtle sounds, which are often absent from recordings using similar microphones on the market.
Versatile, Powerful Performance
With an included tube power supply, Champagne tube mic cable, and ATA style storage case, the Blue Cactus Tube Condenser Microphone comes with all of the essential accessories you need to start recording precise, crisp audio. The Cactus excels in vocal recordings in particular, offering clearer, more upfront sound which fit right into your mixes, however the Cactus also performs strongly with a wide range of other recording applications. The Blue Cactus Tube Mic utilises a single vacuum tube style amplifier for a signal path of the highest quality.
