A little back I was invited by Blue Microphones to shoot some video on a microphone shoot-out feature Blue's BOTTLE and Don Felder's (ex-Eagle) AKG C-12. This wasn't a marketing piece for Blue, merely a demonstration of what each of the two microphones sounded like. People and listen and make up their own mind. Personally, I was very impressed by the bottle. If I had the money to buy one or the other I would seriously lean toward the Bottle due to the different capsules it has, making it more flexible in a studio setting. Truth be told. I want both of them.
