Soyuz Microphones has just released the new Soyuz Microphones 1973 Microphone and Soyuz Microphones 1973 Microphone (Black)! Front End Audio was lucky enough to get a pair of these microphones in early to demo and we were blown away. Especially once we saw the retail price!
The 1973 is a high-end yet affordable LDC microphone that features a handmade capsule and world-class build quality. Like the other mics in the Soyuz family, the 1973 is neither a copy nor a clone but rather a “modern classic”. It was developed and built in the old fashioned way: in-house with maximum attention to detail and no corners cut.

The Soyuz Microphones 1973 is a gorgeous sounding microphone. It has a forward midrange without any harsh and unwanted resonances. This is thanks to the built-in resonator that also helps to minimize abrasive plosives. We love the 1973 microphone for guitars and vocals. With sources like acoustic guitar, piano, or drum overheads, a stereo pair would be fantastic. Soyuz doesn’t cut corners, even with their more affordable microphones and the 1973 is proof. The body and capsule are completely hand-machined, and it features a version of Soyuz’s original S23 Capsule found in the 023 Bomblet Microphone. If you’re looking for a great workhorse microphone that won’t break the bank, check out the Soyuz 1973! It’s one of our new favorites at this price point.
