Description

Premium sound. Head-turning performance.
Hummingbird is a versatile, precision-engineered Class A small-diaphragm microphone that unlocks the tonal nuances of your instruments so you can capture the best recordings possible. With a 180 degree rotating head, Hummingbird fits into tight spaces and can nimbly change positions where others can’t.

Featuring a precisely tuned diaphragm based on our acclaimed B1 capsule, Hummingbird is ultra-responsive and delivers extended frequency response. Hummingbird is the perfect studio and stage solution for drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano, percussion, or any other instrument with fast transients and rich overtones. The only thing it won’t do is pollenate your garden—we’re still working on that technology.

Discover new tonal colors of your instruments by simply rotating Hummingbird’s head. The unique 180° pivoting head allows you to place the mic at any angle—without having to adjust the mic stand—and capture the sound most mics would leave behind. Give Hummingbird a turn, and take your recordings from good to great.

Here are some examples:
Sweep the capsule between the 12th fret and sound hole of an acoustic guitar to dial in the perfect guitar sound, all without having to get up out of your chair.
Rotate the capsule between the edge of the snare drum and the center of the drumhead to get the perfect snare sound, all without having to adjust the mic stand.
Pivot the heads of a pair of Hummingbird overheads to dial in the perfect stereo image for drums, percussion, or upright piano.
