Soyuz 023 Bomblet Condenser LOMO Microphone

Large diaphragm condenser modelled after the Russian LOMO triple back plate system
MFR# 023 Bomblet

Product Description

The Soyuz SU-023 Bomblet, is a unique large diaphragm condenser microphone handmade in Russia by master machinists. The Bomblet capsule is modeled after the vintage 19A19 LOMO microphone. LOMO (Leningrad Optical Mechanical Association) was a French/Russian company originally founded in St. Petersburg in 1914 that produced advanced optical instruments, medical equipment, consumer still and movie cameras, projectors, and a vast range of audio equipment including microphones, preamps, compressors and mixing consoles.

The SU-023's unique character comes from the triple back plate system which is unlike any other capsule in production. The circuit is designed around the original schematic designed by Soyuz’ own electronics engineer, Valery Nikolaevich.The transformer uses a special toroidal core from a source in the Urals and is wound at the Soyuz factory south of Moscow.

Every Bomblet is 100% handmade in house. The sound, construction, and overall feel of the microphone is unmatched by any mic in its class.

The package includes a mic clip, as well as a beautifully designed wooden case with form fitting foam to secure the microphone. The custom case is latched with heavy duty magnets to ensure safe travel from the mic locker to your live room or isolation booth.

This mic strikes an excellent balance between personality and versatility. The sound has a density without being dark. And it responds well to different hardware combinations.

I love this mic and I love this brand... it’s very dark for a condenser mic... it’s got a very unique sound...

By John K on August 15, 2019

This is just in totally different league, it should be compared to mics costing 5-10x more. It's fantastic on nearly everything. I love it on vocals, guitars and as a room mic. It's just incredible. A+

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
