Blue Bottle Capsule B3

This is our most accurate, and, in a purely technical sense, ǃ_bestǃ_ capsule. The B3 has a soft midrange boost to detail the center frequencies in a program source.In the tradition of classical recording microphones, this capsule does little to flatter or enhance the recorded source, but rather ǃ_tells it like it is.ǃ_ The high end response is smooth, with exemplary tran- sient response, and midrange to low end pickup appears to be flat. Though its timbre is not dramatic compared to other BLUE capsules, the B3 is noteworthy for its uncommon ability to convey a source with neutrality and veracity, just as it may sound in the room.
