In an October 2011 article for Prosound Network, Grammy-winning vocal producer, Kuk Harrell says he recorded Bieber using the Blue Bottle Microphone and that “The character, presence and dynamic range I get out of the Bottle microphone is far superior to any other mic that I've ever used.” Harrell states further on the mic: “I was drawn to the Blue Bottle mic by default. When called to do American Idol, I found out that it was the mic of choice provided by the record label. From the very first vocal session with Naima Adedapo, I knew right away that it was going to be my go-to mic, primarily using the B6 capsule.”more

My father gave me this microphone and I use it occasionally for vocals and instrumental usage when I want additional warmth to my recordings. This microphone is never gigged and has never left my studio as it's too precious to me and is a very expensive microphone as Valve ones go.
This was my first valve microphone and one of my first valve studio equipment.
