Blue® Microphones enCORE 100i Dynamic Instrument Microphone


The Blue 100i has a specially designed capsule and a custom tuned diaphragm that results in a much tighter polar pattern, making it ideal for miking instruments requiring high isolation.

Not a 57 copy

Inevitably, any dynamic instrument microphone is going to be compared to an SM57. So here's what I've found... The 100i has a smoother frequency response that works well with those harsh guitar cabinets an SM57 can't handle. The lower frequencies are rolled off in a less aggressive way and high frequencies are detailed without hyped prominence. This allows far more control during mixing as the recorded sound is more balanced. On acoustic guitars as a stereo pair your never disappointed. Almost ribbonesque in it's smooth capture and fine detail. Snare's sound fatter as well with less high hat bleed into the track. The only regret I may have in posting this review is that I've just given away one of my BIG studio secrets. Buy 2. If you buy just one to try, your only going to be online ordering another 10 minutes later

Blue® Microphones- enCore 100i- For Live and Recording

enCore 100i - Best Performance, Reasonably Priced
Blue Microphones continue to produce high quality, purpose specific microphones, and the enCore 100i is no exception. With a rugged, yet stylish exterior, and a well crafted finely tuned interior, the 100i is built to perform equally well in the studio or on stage as your "go to" dynamic instrument microphone. Whether you are a studio producer, or a live audio engineer, you will not be disappointed with the performance and quality of the enCore 100i.

Finely Tuned and High SPL
The Blue 100i has a specially designed capsule and a custom tuned diaphragm that results in a much tighter polar pattern, making it ideal for miking instruments requiring high isolation. This, in conjunction with an almost impenetrable grille and body, and the microphone's ability to handle a formidable 154db SPL, makes it ideal for use on dynamic instrument such as a snare drum.

Impressive Clarity and Frequency Response
The secret to the clear, full bodied and articulate sound generated by the mic lies in its frequency response. With an in built transducer and high pass filter, the lows are rolled off, whilst the real low mids are accentuated yet still remain defined, adding a depth to the sound. With a slight peak in the presence, the e100i offers an added clarity without having to boost the volume to cut through the mix.
