Soyuz 023 Bomblet Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

Add flattering warmth to vocals, guitar amps, and much more. More than just a cool-looking mic, this Russian-made FET condenser is your studio secret weapon!
Featuring a distinct blend of color and clarity, the Soyuz 023 BOMBLET condenser is perfect for capturing everything from drums to amplifiers. With its forgiving top-end, smooth midrange, and thick lows, the Bomblet complements the aggressive tonalities of brighter instruments and vocals without sacrificing transients or detail.

The Bomblet is one of the easiest microphones in the world to use. Regardless of placement and distance, you can expect a full and balanced sound. Its forgiving nature is what makes it the primary choice for singers looking for a warm, colorful texture without hiding the original tonality. On louder and bass-heavy sources like electric guitar, kick drum, and bass amp, the Bomblet delivers a tight, full-bodied punch that will capture the low-end extension of your instrument with enough clarity to cut through a dense mix. Its custom transformer imparts a thickness and character that enhances the tone you've worked years crafting simply by hitting record.

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 of numerous musicians, producers and audio engineers has culminated in the creation of the Bomblets custom S23 capsule. A different design than that of the 017 series, the S23 is Soyuz reimagining of Lomo's Russian version of the CK12 capsule: with its thick low-end, pronounced mid-range, and detailed top end one that is read more forgiving and flatters high frequency sources rather than exaggerating them.

Features:

- Thick low-end, pronounced mid-range, and smooth top-end
- Includes 20 dB pad for loud sources
- Custom large capsule designed and machined in-house
- Proprietary toroidal transformer imparts color and depth
- Comes in a hand-crafted Russian hardwood box
- 100% handmade at the Soyuz Base in Tula, Russia
