BLUE Baby Bottle at a Glance:
  • Hand-crafted, unique design
  • Accurate sound with minimal coloration
  • Use it just about anywhere you record
  • FREE Baby Bottle Shock/Pop kit
Hand-Crafted BLUE Design

The Baby Bottle is a pressure-gradient cardioid condenser microphone, employing an edge-terminated BLUE single-membrane large diaphragm capsule. For this hand-crafted diaphragm, BLUE has selected a 6-micron mylar film, sputtered with a mixture of pure gold and aluminum. Enclosed within a spherical grille, the side-address capsule can be positioned in the smallest of spaces.

Crystal Clear Sonic Clarity

The microphone's electronics are Class A discrete, with transformerless output. In plain English, this means that the sound which arrives at the diaphragm is transduced (converted to electrical energy) is as accurate as possible, with minimal coloration with no integrated circuits in the signal path. In other words, what you hear is what you get!

The Baby Bottle's overall sonic character is neutral and especially rich in midrange response, making it an ideal microphone for recording vocals, drums, electric guitar and most acoustic instruments including "difficult" sources like saxophones, flutes, and stringed instruments. In addition, the Baby Bottle has extremely low self-noise specs, coupled with an exceptionally high output level.

Who's It For?
  • Vocals: Here's a little-known secret - vocalists LOVE singing into unique and impressive microphones like the Baby Bottle! Put it in front of any singer and you're guaranteed to get an inspirational performance!
  • Electric Guitar: Because of its full midrange response, the Baby Bottle is an excellent mic for any clean or distorted amp sound. Orient the capsule toward the center of the speaker to capture more highs, or toward the edge of the cone for a fuller sound with more low end.
  • Acoustic Guitar: Large Diaphragm mics require careful placement when used on acoustic guitar, but the Baby Bottle's rich tone and hot output is well-suited to this job.
  • Strings: Because of its high output, natural highs and abundant midrange characteristics, the Baby Bottle is an excellent choice for miking all members of the bowed string family.
  • Drums: The Baby Bottle's slim profile and fast transient response offer numerous advantages when recording drums.
  • Saxophones, Flutes & Reeds: The smooth, natural high-end response of the Baby Bottle makes it an ideal choice for miking saxophones and other wind instruments.
