By PSW Staff • January 23, 2009 The new Blue Bottle Rockets are ready for launch Blue Microphones is now shipping the Bottle Rocket Stage One Solid-State Microphone System and the Bottle Rocket Stage Two Tube Microphone System. The Stage One Bottle Rocket is a transformerless solid state microphone system that is fully compatible with the Bottle Caps, the same interchangeable capsule system used with Blue’s Bottle mic. It comes with Blue’s versatile B8 capsule as well as a custom shock-mount and wood storage box. The Stage One is every bit as versatile as its tube-based sibling, excelling on a wide variety of sound sources. The Stage Two Bottle Rocket is a transformerless tube microphone. Like the Stage One, the Stage Two is also fully compatible with the Bottle Caps, adding wide array of tonal choices to compliment its highly desired tube microphone warmth. Stage Two comes with Blue’s versatile B8 capsule as well as a custom shockmount, high-definition five-conductor tube mic cable, Blue’s Powerstream power supply and an ATA-style flight case. The Stage Two is great for recording vocals, electric guitars, acoustic guitars, strings, drums, woodwinds, and more. To celebrate the launch of the versatile Bottle Rocket Series, the first 25 Bottle Rocket Stage Twos will feature a beautiful limited edition “stardust” paint finish, and include a second capsule – the distinctive B6 Bottle Cap – as well as a signed letter of authenticity from Skipper Wise, President & Founder of Blue Microphones. The Bottle Rockets are available at authorized Blue dealers for $899 MSRP (Stage One) and $1999 MSRP (Stage Two).
