Handmade FET condenser.
The 017 FET features a cardioid capsule with a gold-sputtered, hand-tuned 34 mm diaphragm; an omnidirectional capsule is currently available, with additional patterns in development. As with all Soyuz microphones, the 017 FET is completely handmade: bodies and capsules are manually machined, transformers are wound in-house and all wiring is true point-to-point.
The 017 Series mics have quickly become the go-to vocal microphone for a wide variety artists such as Coldplay, Radiohead, Shawn Mendes, Paramore and many 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), Butch Walker (Pink, Green Day, 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 34 mm diaphragm, the S17 is loosely based on the original K67 capsule developed in 1960. Far from creating another clone of a classic, 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 FET is a perfect complement to any source needing a three-dimensional sound and captured in a way that already feels finished. The additional –20dB in-line pad provides extra versatility for louder sources like guitar amps and close miked percussion. With its open top-end, smooth mid-range, powerful—yet balanced—low end, and remarkably robust build quality, the 017 is destined to be the future benchmark of that elusive mixture of accuracy and sonic flattery that has sent vintage prices soaring.
