The Robbie by Blue Microphones is a class-A single channel Tube Microphone and also has a amplifier for instruments. The price of the Robbie can get pretty steep depending on where you purchase it from. Brand new it will cost you right around 1,000 USD but you may be able to find one cheaper on EBay or Craig list. The Robbie has a very quiet tube preamp as well as a very unique design and look to it, despite the fact that it looks different you can still rack it, which is a huge plus. On the back panel of the Robbie is where your connections are as well as the power button to turn it off and on. It has a mic in and line out channel and AC 10V adapter. The Robbie is great because of its powerful preamp and how warm it can make your vocals sound and feel. With a frequency response of 10hz-100kHz and 34dB of headroom, there is no doubt that the Robbie packs a powerful punch.


UTILIZATION

The set up of the Robbie is very easy, there really isn’t anything too it. It does have a manual but I have never looked at it and you probably wont have to either if you have used other interfaces then you will understand the Robbie as well as be able to use it right out of the box and not have to read the manual.


SOUND QUALITY

Sound quality on the Robbie is amazing, the preamp does all the work for your vocals. I have recorded some really warm and natural sounding lyrics using the Blue Microphone Robbie.


OVERALL OPINION

I am very happy that I had the chance to get to use the Robbie by Blue Microphones on several occasions. The price is high, but it is well worth it when you hear the quality you will get. It will also last you a long time because it seems to be really well built on top of how cool it looks. I highly recommend buying the Robbie for the preamp alone, all the other stuff is just an added bonus!
