Wondering what kind of microphone Austin Mahone is using in that MacDonalds ad? On the latest TV commercial for McDonald’s, Austin Mahone is in a recording studio singing into a very interesting looking microphone. It’s called The Bottle, by Blue Microphones. It’s a large diaphragm tube condenser microphone, and is Blue’s flagship mic. Not only does it have the incredible sound of a high quality tube condenser mic, but it has interchangeable capsules, called “bottle caps.” These different capsules, seven in all, offer different types of sound by providing different frequency and sensitivity responses, as well as a variety of pick-up patterns.

Since this mic is a very high-end piece of gear, and could be outside your budget at just under 6 grand, you might want to have a look at their entire line of microphones, which include excellent mics at all price levels starting at under $100, HERE.
