Blue Microphones - B6 Bottle Cap (Capsule Series)

Cardioid Large Diaphragm Dual Backplate

THE “MODERN PRESENCE” VOCAL SOUND A.K.A. THE BLUE STANDARD

    • Sonic Character

      “Larger than life” sound with enhanced lows and high frequency presence

    • Suggested Applications

      Yields robust lead and background vocals, voiceovers, percussion, piano, vibraphone, accordion, clean electric guitar, jazz guitar, and distant miking of acoustic or resonator guitar.

    • Inspiration

      Influenced by elite vintage tube mics, B6 was developed to deliver powerfully rich tones without any of the drawbacks of its predecessors. B6 eschews high- and low-pass filters to yield an even smoother, more robust tone. It’s further enhanced by custom ceramic tensioning rings that eliminate the dreaded dropout of those earlier designs. The capsule also features a gold sputtered film for increased punch in the higher and lower frequencies—giving the B6 its very modern sound.

The Blue Microphones B6 is Blue's premium large diaphragm cardioid condenser capsule for the Bottle Rocket system, tuned to deliver a larger-than-life sound with extension in the lower and upper frequencies.

Though designed primarily to achieve a world-class contemporary vocal sound, the B6 can also be utilized to add a glossy, produced sheen to saxophone, piano, and other acoustic lead instruments. To obtain the ultimate vocal sound, work the B6 close with a pop filter.

The big, modern tone and sharply-etched presence of the B6 exemplifies the Blue sound. With a brighter response and more proximity effect than the B7, and less high or low end extension compared to the B0, this capsule is logically a standard first choice for vocals.

It also has extreme presence and “grab” at distances of three feet or more for distant acoustic guitar miking, ambient percussion miking, and unconventional vocal treatments. The B6 has the highest sensitivity of any Blue capsule, and delivers significantly hotter output than most condenser microphones.

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.
