Blue Microphones announces the Bottle Mic Locker. Combining Blue’s flagship Bottle tube microphone with a variable sensitivity power supply and four of Blue’s interchangeable classic capsules housed in a custom laser cut SKB hard shell case.
The foundation of the Bottle Mic Locker is Blue’s Bottle, a fully discrete Class A tube circuit powered by a hand-selected EF86 pentode vacuum tube in triode mode for distinctive warmth, saturation and headroom. The hand-wound transformer—made of silver wire around nickel plates—delivers precision and accuracy due to the high conductivity that silver offers. The Bottle utilizes electronic components with absolutely zero pad or low-cut filter switches in the microphone circuit.
Bottle Mic Locker includes four hot-swappable Bottle Caps:
—B0 Bottle Cap
—B6 Bottle Cap
—B7 Bottle Cap
—B8 Bottle Cap
The Bottle Mic Locker ships with the Power Stream power supply, which allows the user to vary the polarization voltage, thereby fine-tuning the sound of the Bottle to capture the unique sonics and character of the vocalist or instrument.
The Bottle Mic Locker (MSRP $5,999) will is available June 2016 at Sweetwater, Guitar Center, Musician’s Friend, Vintage Friend, Full Compass, Front End Audio, Atlas Pro Audio, Pro Audio Toys, Pixel Pro Audio, Casio Interstate Music, Summit Consultation and Custom Sales, and other authorized retailers.
