The big, warm sound and open pickup pattern of a vintage ribbon microphone.
The Bottle Caps are Blue's innovative system of eight interchangeable capsules that fit into the Blue Bottle microphone. Each capsule offers the recordist a different tonal characteristic and pickup pattern. From airy highs to larger-than-life lows, the Bottle Caps capture anything from vocal to bass, wind instruments to horns -- and everything in between with a level of detail and clarity found in only the most expensive and rare vintage classics.

The response of the B2 has been tailored to resemble the big, warm sound and open pickup pattern of a vintage ribbon microphone. When worked close this capsule is reminiscent of the "Bing Crosby Sound," with soft highs and an enhanced proximity effect.
