The Bottle Tube Condenser Microphone from Blue is an interchangeable, large diaphragm tube condenser microphone designed for professional recording. The output stage is based on a single hand selected vacuum tube (EF86 in triode mode) which provides a warm, analog saturated sound character that captures detail while maintaining a very low noise floor. The Bottle sports a vintage European microphone design that is both attractive and relative to its flexibility.

The Bottle features an interchangeable capsule design, the B6 dual backplate cardioid capsule is included and 7 additional capsules are available as options. Optional capsules provide a wide range of frequency and sensitivity responses while providing users with various omnidirectional, figure of eight and cardioid polar patterns. The Bottle features a wide 30 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response with a signal to noise ratio of 67 dB (related to 1 PA at 1 kHz). The microphone is powered via the Blue 9610 power supply (included) which features a SOFT START to ensure the longevity of the tube. The power supply connects to the microphone via the Blue "Champagne" cable, which is optimized for the best possible signal transfer and durability.
