Soyuz Microphones 017 FET Microphone
The Soyuz Microphones 017 FET 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 Soyuz Microphones 017 FET Microphone shares the SU-017s 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-019 is completely handmade: bodies and capsules are manually machined, transformers are wound in-house, and all wiring is true point-to-point. The Soyuz Microphones 017 FET Microphone 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-019 has proven to be with the available 10, 15, or 20db pads ideal for recording such difficult to capture high-decibel sources as kick drums and guitar and bass amplifiers.
The Soyuz Microphones 017 FET Microphone 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.

I purchased the Soyuz SU-019 microphone from Front End Audio and first of all I need to say how great the communication and customer service is from Front End Audio. I've never had anything but a great experience from this group of people. Now, on to the mic. I also have the higher end Soyuz SU-017 and have done a comparison between them recently. The SU-017 has an addictive silky sound on vocals but the SU-019 is stellar in its own right and matches up very well against its more expensive sibling. I really like the SU-019 of male vocals on recordings that are a little more rock n roll. It has a crisp attack and a very full sound similar to the SU-017 but not quite and rounded and silky. Both mics are winners and you can't go wrong with either one. Both will be staying in my mic collection for a long time.
