    Comments about BLUE Baby Bottle SL Large-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone:

    Wow, there are a lot of great things to say about the Baby Bottle SL. First off, I can't believe how quiet and transparent this mic is. The frequency response seems truly flat and very pure. I've recorded male and female vocals, a few different acoustic guitars, an electric guitar cab, and percussion. All of them were captured perfectly with the Baby Bottle SL. This is an excellent all-around microphone and is now my go-to mic for just about everything. It would still be a great value even if it were twice the price.

    The mic seems meticulously well-made. It feels really solid, and the matte black finish looks great in the studio! It comes with a padded wooden storage box and a high-quality shock mount.

    Vocals sound beautifully balanced (you can get a wonderful, warm and silky tone out of this mic!). Acoustic guitars are full-sounding, but also pristine and nicely detailed in the high end. On the electric guitar cab, it sounds rich and creamy. On percussion, the mic can reproduce deep tones while also sounding perfectly crisp. This mic just sounds fantastic on everything I've recorded so far.

      Comments about BLUE Baby Bottle SL Large-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone:

      Blue has outdone itself with this one! I was looking for a microphone that would produce breathy, intimate vocals along the line of classic Ella Fitzgerald or Madeleine Peyroux, and Baby Bottle SL does exactly that.

      This mic also sounds warm, rich and just...downright amazing when put in front of an overdriven tube amp. Bably Bottle SL, a modded Telecaster and a road-worn Fender bassman is pretty much my holy grail, go to setup these days.

      Not only does the mic sound great, but it's built like a tank and looks stunning on display in my microphone case. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to bring extra soul and character to their music.
