Soyuz 013 FET Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

From drums to acoustic guitar, this Russian-made pencil condenser picks up any source with warmth and detail. Comes with interchangeable cardioid capsule.

The Soyuz 013 FET small-diaphragm condenser melds audio precision and transformer color into a combination of unparalleled musicality. Best-in-class transient response and the ability to capture precise detail make them ideal as drum overheads as well as for the recording of acoustic guitar, piano, choral ensembles, strings, orchestras: in short, any application in which clarity is necessary and character desired.

The 013 Series combines the best elements of classic SDC designs with a unique character of its own. Both tube and FET versions capture sound with precision while imparting a warm sonic signature. The smooth top end and a midrange accuracy that is musical never clinical enable the recording of complex, transient-rich instruments and sounds that span the frequency spectrum and dynamic range (an optional -10 dB pad is included, which you can place in the signal path between capsule and electronics) in a warm, pleasing way.

The 013 Series is available in either FET or tube circuit models; both feature identical capsules and form factors. While they also share similar, natural sound profiles, there are subtle differences between them. The 013 FETs transistor circuit captures transients with a slightly faster response; the 013 TUBE has a smooth top-end perfect for situations in which a touch of coloration is desirable.

The engineers at Soyuz have spent decades studying, servicing and building classic microphones; this unique pool of knowledge, craft and skill combined read more with the ears of numerous musicians, producers and audio engineers has culminated in the creation of the 013 Series custom S13 capsule. The S13, with its detailed top end, warm mid-range, and balanced low-end possesses a remarkable ability to capture source material with an accuracy that is always flattering, never harsh.

These microphones are truly gorgeous sounding. They also look beautiful. I am just enamored with them. These sound so great on so many sources and have multiple polar patterns for them is amazing. These sound amazing on guitar, drum overheads, brass instruments, piano, I love these and am exciting to put them on more sources.
Sound
These sound so smooth because of the roll off on the top end frequencies. I really love how they are clear and thick sounding all at once.
Ease of Use
This microphones have so much beautiful color to them. It’s all the things I would have done in post with a flat response microphones except it’s already done for me. Truly amazing.
Quality
These are made so well. It’s a pleasure simply to open and close the beautiful box they come in, let alone handle the microphones themselves. They are great.
Value
Definitely, so worth the price
