“The capsule (B7) kept the mid-forward push that 47-ish mics have a reputation for, but the Stage One had better clarity and the vocal took up less space in the song.”
“What they all have in common, from the Bottle Rockets to the Bottle Caps, is quality, from their build to their sound, even to their look and presentation.”
“With the B8 capsule, the Blue Stage One mic picked up more room sound and highs than the TLM 103, with a bright response that emphasized string noise and upper midrange.”
