Workhorse FET condenser.

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 a exceptionally easy microphone to use: it captures a full, balanced sound, regardless of placement and distance. An exceptionally forgiving sonic profile makes it an excellent choice for singers seeking a warm, colorful texture that is nonetheless true to the source. On louder and bass-heavy sources like electric guitar amplifiers, kick drums, and bass amplifiers, the Bomblet delivers a tight, full-bodied punch that captures the low-end extension of instruments with the clarity to cut through a dense mix. In addition, the proprietary Soyuz transformer imparts a thickness and character that enhances and complements sources that generally demand accuracy: cello, upright bass, bass clarinet, trombone and so forth.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 Bomblet’s 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 forgiving and flatters high frequency sources rather than exaggerating them. Clarity and character.
