The SU-019 shares the SU-017’s cardioid capsule, featuring a gold-sputtered, hand-tuned one-inch diaphragm. An omni-directional capsule is currently available, with additional patterns in development. As with all Soyuz microphones, the SU-019 is completely handmade: bodies and capsules are manually machined, transformers are wound in-house, and all wiring is true point-to-point. The SU-019 features a carefully designed, low-noise Field Effect Transistor topography and the rich sound of custom in-house created and crafted toroidal transformers.
In addition to excelling at recording vocals and orchestral instruments, the SU-019 has proven to be – with the available 10, 15, or 20db pads – ideal for recording such difficult to capture high-decibel sources as kick drums and guitar and bass amplifiers.
The SU-019 employs the same handmade capsule as the SU-017, a proprietary toroidal transformer, and a completely original circuit design. These elements work together to deliver a tonal character that is as rich and detailed as it's tube brother's, but with the slightly faster transient response characteristic of a FET microphone.
