CLASSIC LARGE-DIAPHRAGM STUDIO CONDENSER MICROPHONE
Baby Bottle is a pressure gradient cardioid condenser microphone that delivers classic sound and incredible versatility. Featuring richly present midrange, smooth top end and neutral bottom, Baby Bottle is reminiscent of the world’s finest vintage microphones. And it excels at recording nearly any sound source, including vocals, drums, electric guitar amps—even difficult brass instruments like saxophones and horns. We just don’t recommend it for feeding.
“a warm but clear sound that made the vocalist sit up and take notice.”

“the Blue Baby Bottle is a tremendous value.”
INCREDIBLY RICH SOUND SIGNATURE
The Baby Bottle’s classic sound signature is rich in midrange response…like Silicon Valley rich. It’s an ideal workhorse mic for your studio, since it flatters any sound source.
Here are some examples:
Capture vocals with vintage warmth and clarity
Bring classic mojo to guitars and other instruments
Track piano and percussion with vibrant, soulful results
CLASSIC SOUND, CLASSIC PERFORMANCE
Why do classic vocal tracks sound so good? Is it the warmth, the smoothness, or the way they sit perfectly in the mix? Probably all of the above. We created Baby Bottle to deliver superior warmth and presence to vocals and a wide range instruments, so you can bring the classic vibe and feel of a vintage mic to your studio—without having to break the bank.
Every part of the Baby Bottle microphone was designed to ensure incredible performance. The proprietary hand-tuned large diaphragm capsule delivers incredibly accurate and transparent sound, with minimal coloration. And custom circuitry makes it the quietest mic in its class.
