Soyuz Microphones has announced the release of their new SU-013 small diaphragm condenser microphone. The SU-013 features an interchangeable capsule design, with available Cardioid, Hypercardioid, and Omni capsules. "The Soyuz Microphones SU-013AC Microphone features the same capsule as their SU-011 tube microphone but with a FET pre-amp. With more than a year of research and development, Soyuz worked very hard to develop their own proprietary transformer, which gives the SU-013AC a rich and beautiful sound. As with all their microphones, the SU-013AC is 100% handmade in the Soyuz facility in Russia" – aiming to make this a versatile mic for the studio.
