“With our newest offering, you can invest in a single microphone, yet have the creative power and sonic flexibility of an entire mic locker,” said John Maier, CEO of Blue. “You can easily swap out and audition the different capsules to match your singer’s voice, or layer tracks for richer sounding mixes –all with one portable package you can take to any recording session.”
The foundation of the Bottle Rocket Mic Locker is Blue’s Bottle Rocket Stage One microphone, a hand-built Class-A discrete solid-state microphone that features exceptionally low self-noise. And with exceptional sonic clarity, it accurately delivers the nuances of the different interchangeable capsules (known as Bottle Caps) for any studio recording application. Bottle Rocket Mic Locker also includes four Bottle Caps, each delivering its own sonic inspiration:
- B0 Bottle Cap – silky, extended presence
- B6 Bottle Cap – classic warmth, larger than life sound
- B7 Bottle Cap – vintage detailed mids with airy presence
- B8 Bottle Cap – crystal-clear sound with incredible detail
Each of the four capsules are hot-swappable, making the process of auditioning mics faster and easier. The Bottle Rocket Mic Locker capsules not only provide a distinctive sonic signature when used individually, they also complement each other to create layered, well-balanced recordings.
