Blue today announced the Blue Custom Shop and introduced its first offering, Bottle Limited Edition. Bottle Limited Edition is available in several striking finishes, including metallic, glossy hot rod colors, and textured hammer-tone and matte options. Each Bottle Limited Edition is hand-built in California using the finest components, including Blue’s custom silver-wound transformer.
“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. “For decades, Bottle has represented the pinnacle of microphone craftsmanship. For discerning studio owners who want the very best in quality and design, Bottle Limited Edition offers unforgettable style to inspire every artist or complement any creative space.”
With its impressive size and nostalgic resemblance to the earliest European tube microphones, Bottle features a fully discrete Class A tube circuit powered by a hand-selected EF86 pentode vacuum tube in triode mode for distinctive warmth and saturation. Every Bottle comes with Blue’s signature B6 large-diaphragm dual-backplate cardioid capsule, which delivers larger than life sound with enhanced lows and extended high frequency response.
The Bottle Limited Edition Mic Locker is also available for recordists and studios that wish to take advantage of the creative power of Bottle’s interchangeable mic capsules. The system 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.
Bottle Limited Edition is now available in limited quantities at participating retailers including Atlas Pro Audio, Front End Audio, Pure Wave Audio, RSPE, Summit Consultation and select styles available on Blue’s online store.
