Blue Microphones Bottle Rocket Stage 2 Tube Microphone

Front End Audio frequently received gear that has been deemed as less than perfect by the manufacturer. Many times you can't even tell why these are considered B-Stock but expect minor cosmetic issues. Rest assured that any issues present do not have any affect on the functionality, playability or performance of the microphone. These Bottle Rocket Stage 2's have been fully tested by Blue and carry a 5 year manufacturer warranty. These are priced to move fast so no other discounts or promotional codes can be applied to our already discounted price.

The Blue Microphones Bottle Rocket Stage 2 Tube Microphone is designed for speed and transparency. Featuring a transformerless, Class A discrete tube amplifier circuit it delivers low noise, superb transient response and utilizes a single hand-selected ECC88 vacuum tube. The Blue Microphones Bottle Rocket Stage 2 has the ability to hot-swap up to nine different capsules for the ultimate recording experience. The Bottle Rocket Stage 2 is powered by Blue's innovative Powerstream power supply, which not only ensures ultra-stable performance but features a soft-start feature for maximum tube life and minimal startup time.

Great for recording a variety of sources

With the Blue Microphones Bottle Rocket Stage 2 in your mic closet, you can rest assured - you've got an incredibly versatile mic, ready to tackle nearly any source. On vocals, you can get a "big" vocal sound, without worrying about overloading the mic, an incredible clean guitar sound on your electric amp, and a well-suited shimmering high-end on acoustics! With its natural highs and soft mid-range characteristics, your Stage 2 can handle nearly any member of the bowed string family, and its extended high end delivers a modern tonality when miking saxophones and other wind instruments!

Compatible with BLUE Bottle Caps

Expanding the possibilities of your Blue Microphones Bottle Rocket Stage 2, this mic is fully compatible with Blue's acclaimed Bottle Caps, letting you interchange your capsules. Enjoy a new tonal range as you try out larger or smaller diaphragm capsules with varying pickups patterns on different sources.

PowerStream power supply

Most tube mic power supplies apply both heater and plate voltages simultaneously once power has been switched on, attracting electrons from the not yet heated cathode - potentially causing cathode stripping, which can wear out your tube and makes it get noisier. Blue avoids this problem with their PowerStream power supply system that delivers the tube's heater voltage first, and prevents the heater current from exceeding the limits for which the tube was designed.
