Bottle Rocket Stage One includes the B8 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser Bottle Cap. Its mission: total recording versatility. The B8 capsule is a hotrod version of one of the world’s most legendary condenser capsules. But unlike it’s predecessor, which was lacking in mids, B8 is tuned for a lush midrange with a gorgeous lift around 5kHz and a smooth cut around 8kHz. It’s perfect for capturing a wide variety of sound sources with stunning detail—including lead vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, drums, percussion, horns and strings.
Bottle Rocket Stage One is designed and hand-built in the USA for a lifetime of use. It features very low self-noise (<7.5dB), exceptionally high output (+12dBV), and a proprietary transformerless Class A FET circuit that delivers the most accurate, noise-free signal available. It even comes with a spider mount and flight case.
Bottle Caps are a system of interchangeable capsules that provide a variety of tonal ranges, characters, diaphragm sizes and polar patterns for total recording versatility. Big vocal sounds. Vintage and modern sounds. Delicate, accurate reproduction. Different patterns. All in a single microphone. And the quick-change connection makes experimenting with new sounds fast and easy.
