+1 for baby bottle on amps and vox. it works well on a few male vocalists ive used it on, and now that ive moved my mic collection to the post production studio i work at, it gets used several times a week for VO and does a great job.

ive close mic'ed drums with it before, and it did great, really worked for a thick ballad snare sound. the issue is that it can handle the SPL very well, no distortion of the mic, but the output is SUPER hot, almost line level, and you really need a 10-15db pad if you want to use this mic on drums.

it should be noted that my baby bottle is a V2, made in latvia, as compared to the V3 which has the aforementioned screws on the head of the mic and has different sound characteristics, particularly in the upper midrange and high freq.

i own several BLUE mic's as well as both of the RED bodies.
the BLUEBERRY is among one of my favorite vocal mics.
i also have the DRAGONFLY i like it on lots of things i want a bit more in you face.
the RED mics i love and feel the type B is a very very under rated mic!!!!

Hey there, I use my baby bottle a lot, I use it on bass cabs, it sounds awesome I always us a baby bottle, beta 52, and DI and always use the baby bottle as the main signal. On clean and distorted guitars its awesome it has a lot of detail. It gets used also outside of the kick (with a pad, for the most part a padis needed in most cases orther vocals or acoustic guitars, since the output is very hot) on the ride, snare you name it. I love this mic it is kinda dark sometimes but it translates sounds very well, with its own love attached.

On vocals I don`t use it as much I mostly use other mics for that but I have used it rock vocals before when I wanted detail but the singer was too agressive to use other mics I normally use for vocals. It is a little more detailed than the SM7B but it can take the abuse the SM7B can take.

I have been wanting to get my hands on a mouse for sometime know, I love how crazy they look too.

i have a blue baby bottle. it's probably the original one - i bought it several years ago. someone earlier mentioned it was a dark mic- which is definitely true for me. it really depends on the source whether it sounds good.

for vocals - it sounds OK. it's not great. i use my AKG C414 TLII way more often....

for guitar amps, it's actually pretty cool. i sit it about 2 or 3 feet from the speaker, off-axis ... and it provides a nice "presence" and well-rounded tone.

Hi War! I just want to know if the RED mics have any affiliation with Blue mics? and how good they are...I own a BlueBerry and really like it.

I own both the dragonfly and the baby bottle

The dragonfly is awesome on guitar amps, defintly like it better then the baby bottle or a 57. not to bad on acoustic guitar to, but placement makes a HUGE difference, when i first got it and just threw it up and pressed record i thought maybe it was broken cause it sounded so bad, but after messing with it for a while i got a pretty nice sound out of it. The baby bottle doesnt sound bad on anything but i dont think it really sounds good either, would of rather spent the money on a fathead II or something.
