The amount of care that goes into constructing a Blue microphone is legendary. As their flagship microphone, the Bottle encapsulates all Blue 's attention to detail and careful construction. It looks beautiful, and boasts a sound that's so warm, natural, and "alive," it'll leave no doubt that you're hearing one of the world's elite mics. Engineers we know can't say enough good things about the incredible Blue Bottle mic.
Extremely versatile tube condenser mic
The Blue Bottle not only sounds like a dream, but it's extremely versatile. The Bottle features eight different interchangeable capsules, so you can change capsules to deliver different tonality, patterns and uses while the microphone is still turned on, thus eliminating the need for many types of mics. The amplifier design is based on a single vacuum tube pentode EF86 in a triode mode. Blue hand selects the tube for low noise performance.
Power supply helps preserve tube life
The Blue Bottle microphone is packaged with one B6 Lollipop capsule and the 9610 Tube Microphone Power supply. Blue has developed the 9610 with the new SOFT START feature to assure the longevity of the vacuum tube, and the stability of the microphone circuitry. No other commercially available tube microphone power supply offers this unique feature. Champagne tube microphone cable is standard inclusion and all the above is all housed in a Blue velvet lined ATA approved flight case.
Eight available capsules
The Bottle Mic can employ seven additional hand-built capsules crafted by Blue at their factory.
