Blue Microphones has launched enCORE, a new series of microphones tailored for stage. The enCORE 100, 200, and 300 models are designed and priced for any live application from the rehearsal space and coffee shop to the auditorium and stadium.
Blue's entry into the live microphone market brings modern microphone technology with a proven track record in professional studio recording and combines it with a rugged build, individual style, and quality components to help vocalists and musicians sound and look their best on stage.
The enCORE 100 is a studio-grade dynamic microphone featuring Blue's custom-tuned Aria dynamic capsule. This is a go anywhere, do anything mic that offers vocalists and musicians great versatility and value as well as the unique style Blue is renowned for in a rugged package.
The enCORE 200 adds Blue's Active Dynamic circuitry and output transformer, coupling the ruggedness and high SPL handling of a dynamic mic with the consistency and low noise of a phantom powered mic. This best of both worlds approach builds upon a proven Blue technology first made popular by the company's Ball Series microphones.
The enCore 300 is the flagship of the series and offers vocalists uncompromised performance featuring a hand-selected Blue ARIA condenser capsule with a matched pre-amp and phantom power circuit, a tuned enclosure, and Blue's proprietary reinforced chassis, which controls airflow around the capsule for unparalleled vocal control and a natural, open sound, no matter how the artist holds the microphone.
The enCORE 100 and 200 microphones will be available at authorized music retailers in October 2009. The enCORE 300 will be available in late 2009.
