The Stage One is Blue Microphones' most accessible Class A discrete solid state mic with a foundation for interchangeable capsules. Compared to similar microphones; the Stage One has a very low self noise specificaiton (<7.5 dB) and a very high output level (+12 dBV); making it the perfect choice for today's high sample rate/deep word length digital platforms. Instead of integrated circuits (chips); the Stage One employs a transformless Class A discrete amplifier circuit to ensure the most accurate and noise-free signal possible; with minimal distortion and coloration. The Stage One is an ideal microphone for recording virtually any sound source.Designed for the most discerning recordists; the Interchangeable Capsule series contains microphones capable of providing a wide palette of tonal characteristics and pickup patterns to satisfy even the most discriminating tastes. The series integrates the best of Blue's discrete Class A circuitry with a unique and revolutionary system of interchangeable capsules that provide the engineer a wide range of potential tonal characteristics. This series is employed in the world's most respected studios; and is recognized by industry insiders as the world's premiere microphone system.
