Soyuz 013 TUBE Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

No longer available at zZounds
Handmade in Russia, Soyuz's tube version of the 013 small-diaphragm condenser mic delivers warmth and clarity on drum overheads, piano, strings, and beyond.

The Soyuz 013 TUBE 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 (a -20db pad is included, correctly placed 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 with the ears read more 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.
