Soyuz 017 FET Large Diaphragm Condenser Mic
The Soyuz SU-017 FET Large Diaphragm 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 SU-017 FET 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-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 SU-017 FET 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-017 FET has proven to be – with the available 10, 15, or 20 db pads – ideal for recording such difficult to capture high-decibel sources as kick drums and guitar and bass amplifiers.
The SU-017 FET 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.

Absolutely fantastic mic for vocals. It really is the new gold standard, or at least should be. Works very well for strings too.
Real sleeper mic. Commonly out competes classic vintage options on the right source. Exceptional vocal mic. Buy this mic and all your wildest dreams will come true.
Grateful that VK let me try out a couple of mics before making my purchase.... this was the mic I was looking for... thanks again for the good customer service
I’ve used this microphone for the past couple of months and it’s AMAZING! It tends to lean more on the darker side of the spectrum and I love it. It’s fantastic on vocals and acoustic instruments. It just makes everything sound better!!
