Soyuz SU-023 Bomblet FET LDC Microphone

jquery content slider
 

A unique, handmade and machined, smooth sounding LDC reminiscent of the vintage 19A21 Lomo Microphone Capsule. With this mic, Soyuz offers affordable access to lush sonics without sacrifice

The SU-023 (aka The Bomblet) may just be Soyuz’s
most innovative microphone to date. At just $1199, it’s
sure to bring Soyuz’s handmade microphones to a much
wider sector of the recording and broadcast world.
 
LOS ANGELES, CA- In less than five short years, Soyuz, a
Russian/US company, has managed to build a solid
reputation for itself in the world of high end microphones.
Its flagship SU-017 tube mic has become the go-to LDC
for everyone from Coldplay to Paramore, Jon Brion to
Nigel Godrich. Known for building virtually every aspect
of their mics in-house, Soyuz has committed itself to
production methods that have been all but abandoned
in the modern world of OEM factories and CNC lathes.
As one would expect, handmade microphones have always
come with a premium price tag— until now.
With The Bomblet, Soyuz has found a way to optimize
production in order to provide a 100% handmade
microphone at an accessible price point.
 
THE SILVER STANDARD
 
With The Bomblet, Soyuz has traded their
signature cream and brass for a combination
of polished and brushed aluminum, thus
eliminating the need for lacquering and
painting. That, along with the use of a
circuit board instead of point-to-point wiring
and a mounting ring instead of a shock mount,
has allowed Soyuz to offer a lower
price point without sacrificing quality.
 
Like all Soyuz microphones,
The Bomblet features a proprietary
Soyuz transformer as well as a
custom hardwood box.
 
A CAPSULE’S TALE
As is the case with most condenser mics, the real magic
resides in the capsule.
The capsule used in The Bomblet is based on the LOMO
19A21 which was developed in 1972 and put
into production in 1974. LOMO based their capsule
design on the AKG CK12, but instead of using two electrodes,
LOMO used a single electrode and two “?ilters.” They essentially
created a triple back plate capsule which eliminated
the need for non-through holes, thus increasing the
consistency between capsules.
 
Soyuz has further developed the capsule, modifying how
it is assembled and tuned. The result, when
paired with Soyuz’s original schematic, is a rich,
full sound which is not overly hyped in the high
frequencies and has a very pleasant midrange.
