Blue Bottle Tube Microphone
The Blue Bottle Tube Microphone is the perfect bedrock. It is a flexible platform with a discrete, Class A tube circuit (with an EF86 vacuum tube) that was hand selected due to its reliability and high-quality nature. It works particularly well bringing out the detail of a vocal – with the included Bottle-Caps giving you enough creative options to create the perfect recording.
Each of the included Bottle-Caps brings a different recording skillset and a cardioid polar pattern to the table. The B8 is the most well-rounded, serving as the top choice if you’re looking for a balanced option that excels in most scenarios. The B7 pays homage to the vintage tones of classic tube mics, letting you recapture the old-school sound and feel. The B6 is the opposite of the B7, bringing a more modern, fuller sound which is suited to everything from vocals and piano to percussion. Finally, the B0 adds a smooth tone that is best applied to vocals.
