Blue targets studio instrument miking with Hampton
Blue Microphones' latest offering takes the form of the Hampton, a small-diaphragm condenser microphone designed for both live and studio applications. Specifically, the mic is most suited for instrument miking.
Measuring less than 8-inches tall with a rotating head, Hampton is designed for optimal placement and convenient adjustment. Hampton was built around the manufacturer’s B1 small diaphragm capsule, which in this instance has been paired with custom-matched analogue circuitry and Class-A discrete components.
Hampton’s cast and machined metal construction is designed specifically for studio use and on-stage durability. Well-suited for miking in pairs, Hampton will be offered as a single microphone and as a matched pair, while the matched pair also includes a mounting tree in addition to standard mic clips.
