What We Think

There are few microphones that come through our shop that has caused as much of a positive stir as the Soyuz SU-017. The level of quality of the craftsmanship is on par with, if not better than, what the makers of the markets most expensive mics have to offer. This extreme care in craftsmanship is reflected in the quality of tone as well. It is not a stretch to say that fit, finish and sound are in league with the absolute very best!

Manufacturer's Description from Soyuz

The SU-017 large-diaphragm tube condenser microphone delivers sound that is as rich, warm, solid, and beautiful as its hand-crafted, 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 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 SU-017 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 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 SU-017 redefines the classic tube large diaphragm microphone. Soyuz' proprietary transformer, vintage tube, and handmade capsule work in concert to create a sound that is rich and balanced across the frequency spectrum, with a top end that is open and never harsh.
