Magazine Reviews
The Pro Audio Files, 2010 "Well, this has to do with how we WANT to hear things. The Woodpecker was purposely designed by Blue to place the microphone, walk away, hit record, and love it! And that’s why I personally use the Woodpecker myself" http://theproaudiofiles.com/blue-woodpecker-ribbon-microphone-review/ Mix Online, 2007 "The mic excelled when it was used to record an upright bass. The transient definition flattered the track, exhibiting a nice roundness when the player plucked the string. The bottom end was thick, warm and delicious when tucked into the mix, behind the kick drum and strummed acoustic guitar.
