Blue Microphones - B2 Bottle Cap (Capsule Series)

Figure Eight Large Diaphragm

THE VINTAGE CAPSULE

  • Sonic Character

    Big, warm, and full sound reminiscent of vintage ribbon mics

  • Suggested Applications

    For bringing out the warmth of vintage brass and woodwinds, jazz and horn ensembles, all extended-range strings and bowed instruments, acoustic and electric guitars, slide guitar, vocals and organ.

  • Inspiration

    B2 pays homage to the full sound of classic ribbon mics in a whole new way. Outfitted with a condenser capsule, B2 is able to replicate the sound of vintage ribbon mics while bearing up to higher SPL for an exquisitely present timbre.

The Vintage Capsule.

The response of the B2 has been tailored to resemble the big, warm sound and open pickup pattern of a vintage ribbon microphone. When worked close this capsule is reminiscent of the “Bing Crosby Sound,” with soft highs and an enhanced proximity effect.

The B2 offers a thick and compressed tonality, with an aggressive upper midrange and big low end response on par with the B0 and B4 capsules. It has a distinctively mellow high end compared to other BLUE capsules, and does a remarkable job of capturing the gentle timbre and roomy pickup of a ribbon microphone (without the fragility or low output problems of a classic specimen).

The proximity effect of this pattern is pronounced, and can be used to great effect on vocals and soloists, whether one is pursuing experimental modern techniques, or recalling historical recording styles.
