Designed for speed and transparency, the Stage Two vacuum tube microphone’s transformerless, Class A discrete tube amplifier circuit delivers low noise, superb transient response and utilizes a single hand-selected ECC88 vacuum tube. Like the Bottle, the Stage Two has the ability to hot-swap up to nine different capsules for the ultimate recording experience. The Bottle Rocket Stage 2 is powered by Blue’s innovative Powerstream power supply, which not only ensures ultra-stable performance but features a soft-start feature for maximum tube life and minimal startup time.

Precision-designed and hand-assembled, the Stage Two is crafted for a lifetime of use. Its transformerless Class A discrete amplifier circuit is a thoroughly modern design with a nod to the classic circuits of yesterday. Utilizing a single hand-selected ECC88 vacuum tube, you’ll hear musical detail and subtlety previously only heard in mics costing thousands more. The Stage Two comes with Blue’s popular and versatile B8 capsule. It also includes a custom-built flight case, our high-definition tube mic cable, shockmount and the innovative Powerstream power supply, which not only ensures ultra-stable performance but features our soft-start feature which maximizes tube life and minimizes startup time.
