The Blue B1 Small Diaphragm Bottle Cap is an interchangeable capsule for Blue Bottle and Bottle Rocket studio microphones. A variety of interchangeable capsules are available; each with its own frequency, tonal and pickup pattern characteristic.
The B1 is a small-diaphragm condenser capsule with a cardioid polar pattern that provides accurate audio reproduction and an extended high frequency response.
Suggested applications for this capsule include acoustic guitar, accordion, drum overheads, metal percussion, hi-hat, small pitched percussion such as toy piano or marimba, room or ambient miking, foley and sound effect recording, strings and orchestral recording.
About Blue's Bottle Cap Capsules: The Bottle Caps are Blue's innovative system of nine interchangeable capsules, each offering the recordist a different tonal characteristic and pickup pattern. From airy highs to larger-than-life lows, the Bottle Caps capture anything from vocals 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.
The Bottle Caps work with Blue's Bottle, Bottle Rocket Stage Two, and Bottle Rocket Stage One mics, or any microphone with a foundation for interchangable capsules. Each capsule in the series is numbered from B0 to B8, and each has their own unique sound.
