Westlake Village, CA (April 16, 2018)—After 20 years of producing pro audio gear, Blue has introduced a new department—the Blue Custom Shop—and introduced its first offering, the Bottle Limited Edition microphone.
The hand-built Bottle Limited Edition is available in numerous colors and finishes, including metallic, glossy hot rod colors, and textured hammer-tone and matte options. Bottle features a discrete Class A tube circuit powered by a EF86 pentode vacuum tube in triode mode.
Every Bottle comes with Blue’s B6 large-diaphragm dual-backplate cardioid capsule, intended to provide enhanced lows and extended high frequency response, according to the company.
Building on that, Blue is also offering the Bottle Limited Edition Mic Locker, an expanded edition that includes the Custom Shop Bottle Limited Edition, plus the B0, B6, B7, and B8 Bottle Caps housed in a custom-designed SKB hard-shell case.
“As the first offering from the new Blue Custom Shop, Bottle Limited Edition allows artists to own a signature microphone that will truly become the centerpiece of their studio,” said John Maier, CEO of Blue.
