OVERVIEW

Handmade FET condenser.

The 017 FET condenser represents the modern embodiment of the big, classic sound so highly prized
in vintage microphones. With their hand-machined and tensioned capsules, all Soyuz microphones are like
fine musical instrument and works of ar. They are completely handmade and enable detail to be
captured with stunning depth, warmth, and a silky transparence in the upper frequencies. These sonic
characteristics, inherent to the 017’s design, allow it to complement the subtle nuances of vocals and
strings while accurately capturing complex instruments with difficult transients across the entire
frequency spectrum.

The 017 FET features a cardioid capsule with a gold-sputtered, hand-tuned 34mm diaphragm; an
omni-directional capsule is currently available, with additional patterns in development. As with all
Soyuz microphones, the 017 TUBE is completely handmade: bodies and capsules are manually
machined, transformers are wound in-house, and all wiring is true point-to-point.

The 017 FET has quickly become the go-to vocal microphone of such artists as Coldplay, Radiohead,
Shawn Mendes, the Lumineers, and Paramore, among others. Well-known producers and engineers
who have adopted it include Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Beck), Ryan Hewitt (Red
Hot Chili Peppers, the Lumineers, Lady Gaga), Sylvia Massy (Prince, Johnny Cash), and Butch
Walker (Pink, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Avril Lavigne) and many more.

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 017 Series’ custom S17
capsule. Featuring a gold-sputtered, hand-tuned 34mm diaphragm, the S17 is loosely based on the
original K67 capsule developed in 1960. Far from creating another clone of a classic, however, Soyuz
has further developed the design, modifying its assembly and tuning. The result, when paired with
Soyuz’s original schematic, is unique – and uniquely musical.

The 017 Series is comprised of FET (field effect transistor) and tube (valve) powered models. Though
the FET and Tube models are similar – the two share identical capsules, form factors, and sonic
signatures – there are subtle differences between them. The 017 FET captures transients with a
somewhat faster, tighter response; the 017 TUBE’s smoother, rounded top-end is perfect for sources
requiring warmth with slightly more coloration.
