"One of the best affordable condensers out"

The Baby Bottle microphone is made by Blue Microphones and has been out for a while now. I was using it for 3 months last year. It comes with a custom pop filter and in a wood box. The Baby Blue is considered to be one of the best condenser microphones that can be purchased for fewer than 500 dollars and I agree. For the price that the Baby Bottle cost you will not find any other microphone that can do what it can do in that price range.


The Baby Bottle does require phantom power and it is a pressure gradient condenser microphone with a cardioids polar pattern. The frequency response is 20Hz to 20 kHz. The sound quality is crisp and clean on all different vocal types. I have not used this microphone for anything other than recording vocals in my studio. But I have heard that it does well with some instruments too.
The Baby Bottle sounds very natural and does not color the sound at all. It is rich and full and does a great job with those mid to high range frequencies to get them cutting through the mix. I used the Baby Bottle with a high fidelity cable to get the best possible sound out of it that I could and I had a shockmount from when I was using the Blue Microphones Spark mic so I used that with the Baby Bottle microphone.
I do not own this microphone anymore but I still have Blue Microphone mics in my current studio and I love them. The quality that Blue Microphones provides is great and they stand by all of their products. I have used the Spark, Kiwi and a few other mics from them and each of them are absolutely amazing. I recommend this microphone if you are recording from home and want to get a great sound for a few hundred bucks. As long as you have a decent interface with warm preamps you will get an amazing sound for recording at home.
