Who's In and Who's Out in a Mic Shootout

FOUR ICONIC MIC CAPSULES

THE RIGHT SOUND FOR ANY SESSION

Bottle Mic Locker includes four Bottle Caps, each delivering its own sonic inspiration:

BO BOTTLE CAP

The ultimate big vocal sound

B6 BOTTLE CAP

The “modern presence” vocal sound (A.K.A. the Blue standard)

B7 BOTTLE CAP

The classic vocal sound

B8 BOTTLE CAP

The versatile capsule

THE WORLD’S ONLY TUBE MIC LOCKER IN A SINGLE PACKAGE

Bottle Mic Locker features four interchangeable Bottle Caps that deliver distinct tonal characteristics—like having a mic locker full of tube mics at your fingertips. Bottle Mic Locker enables any recording engineer to accomplish a full vocal mic shootout with just a single mic on a single stand. Simply hot swap between capsules to find the sound that brings out the magic in any vocal performance.

Looking for the right mic for your vocalist?

The Bottle Mic Locker makes the process of auditioning mics faster and easier. Now you can move quickly between classic and modern sounds to find the right match for your talent.

Layering multiple vocal tracks?

Instead of using a single mic for all of your lead and backing vocals—which can result in a muddy-sounding mix—use a different mic capsule for each vocal track. They will blend into a rich, balanced and colorful palette.

Need to capture the right sound to match the vibe of the song

Choose the right capsule and let the Bottle do the work for you while you track—instead of spending hours afterwards with EQs and plugins.

YOUR NEXT TUBE MIC COULD BE FOUR TUBE MICS

If you’re thinking about investing in a new mic, consider the creative power and flexibility that Bottle Mic Locker brings to your studio. Shoot out all four capsules to find the right sound, layer tracks with different capsules for richer, larger-than-life mixes, and explore new tones for your instruments—all with one portable package. The system comes housed in a road-ready SKB® hard-shell case, complete with microphone, four capsules and power supply. Now you can show up to any recording session with your own mic locker in hand.

THE PINNACLE OF MIC INNOVATION

The Bottle stands alongside the most iconic recording mics of the 20th century, blending modern technology with the soul of legendary vintage microphones to deliver a unique voice of its own. The Bottle’s Power Stream power supply delivers consistent power microphone and also helps you fine-tune your sound. Power Stream offers a nine-step sensitivity knob that lets you set the right polarization voltage to achieve your desired sound. To top it off, the Bottle’s system of interchangeable mic capsules offers limitless versatility and unparalleled tone for recording any sound source.
