Extreme Versatility

The Blue Bottle Condenser Microphone offers extreme versatility in terms of interchangeable capsules to deliver different sonic properties and polar patterns. You can choose between 8 different capsules to use with the Blue Bottle to achieve the perfect audio for your specific application. The Bottle also features an amplifier design based on a single vacuum tube pentode EF86 in a triode mode to offer the lowest noise during recordings.

 

High-End Recording Experience

The Blue Bottle Condenser Microphone includes one standard B6 Lollipop capsule and the 9610 Power Stream Power Supply. Not only does the power supply deliver clean, consistent power to the Blue Bottle, it is also a creative device to fine tune the sound from the Bottle. The Power Stream uses only high-frequency diodes to obtain the purest DC possible and the plate voltage supply is of low impedance, which improves sonics and clarity. The highest quality materials and construction techniques are used on the Bottle and the Power Stream to deliver a long-lasting, top-end recording experience.
