Soyuz 017 TUBE & FET Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones

Soyuz 017 TUBE & FET Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones
Designed by Soyuz engineers to be an all-purpose mic that excels in every category, the 017 large-diaphragm condenser will surely become a standout performer on every project you produce. Equipped with a proprietary toroidal transformer and wrapped meticulously in point-to-point wrap wire, every detail of the 017 is the result of loving attention to detail and wholly unique, including its custom-designed 34mm cardioid capsule.

Whether you choose the 017 equipped with a 6ZH1P military-grade pentode tube, or the solid-state FET version, you can expect authentic warmth, with enough high-definition detail to bring out the nuances of vocals, acoustic guitar, piano, or any source. Both versions include a shock mount and come in a heavy-duty Russian hardwood box.

Soyuz 023 Bomblet & Bomblet Deluxe Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones

Soyuz 023 Bobmlet & Bomblet Deluxe Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones
The 023 is a bit more of a specialized microphone that excels on loud, bright sources. If you find your tracks lacking body, or you're new to recording and have yet to develop a finesse for mic placement, the Bomblet is a forgiving option that makes it easy to achieve excellent tones.

A custom transformer enables the 023 Bomblet to articulate the low registers of any instrument while taming the high-end for an effortlessly smooth sound. Try it on guitar and bass amps, kick drum, brass, and bright vocals. Choose the standard version, which comes in a Russian hardwood box, or opt for the 023 Bomblet Deluxe, which comes in a larger box with shock mount and 10' cable.

Soyuz 013 TUBE & FET Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones

Soyuz 013 TUBE & FET Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones
Compact, capable, and precise, the 013 is Soyuz's small-diaphragm condenser design. Equipped with a custom toroidal transformer, these mics excel at clarity and detail in the top end, with a musical, not sterile, sound.

Ideal for use when plenty of high-frequency detail is needed, the 013 excels as a pair for drum overheads, as well as on choirs, or even large orchestras. Both versions of the 013 lend a sweetness to your tracks that retains plenty of vintage character. The tube version, equipped with a 6S6B, includes an oak suitcase with mic clips, two 16' cables, and a stereo power supply. The solid-state FET version includes a Russian hardwood box with mic clips, and is available as a single mic or a pair.
