Includes B6 Bottle Cap - Cardioid Large Diaphragm Dual Backplate
“Larger than life” sound with enhanced lows and high frequency presence. Influenced by elite vintage tube mics, B6 was developed to deliver powerfully rich tones without any of the drawbacks of its predecessors. B6 eschews high- and low-pass filters to yield an even smoother, more robust tone. It’s further enhanced by custom ceramic tensioning rings that eliminate the dreaded dropout of those earlier designs. The capsule also features a gold sputtered film for increased punch in the higher and lower frequencies—giving the B6 its very modern sound.
Yields robust lead and background vocals, voiceovers, percussion, piano, vibraphone, accordion, clean electric guitar, jazz guitar, and distant miking of acoustic or resonator guitar.
