Soyuz 017Fet Large Diaphragm FET Condenser Microphone
The Soyuz 017Fet Large Diaphragm FET Condenser Microphone delivers sound as rich, warm, and beautiful as its handcrafted, polished design suggests. Swappable capsules make this high performance microphone at home in a wide range of critical recording applications, from vocals to orchestral instruments.
The 017Fet shares the 017Tube V2’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 017Fet is completely handmade: bodies and capsules are manually machined, transformers are wound in-house, and all wiring is true point-to-point. The SU-017F 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 017Fet 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 017Fet employs the same handmade capsule as the 017Tube V2, 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.
