The classic vocal sound of '50's tube mics.
The Bottle Caps are Blue's innovative mic 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.
