A distinct blend of color and clarity with smooth highs, thick lows, and fast transients makes the Soyuz 023 BOMBLET condenser perfect for capturing everything from drums to amplifiers. With its forgiving top-end, the Bomblet complements the aggressive tonalities of brighter instruments without sacrificing any of the important transient details.
The Bomblet is one of the easiest microphones in the world to use. Regardless of placement and distance, you can expect a full and balanced sound. Its forgiving nature is what makes it the primary choice for singers looking for a warm, colorful texture without hiding the original tonality. On louder and bass-heavy sources like electric guitar, kick drum, and bass amp, the Bomblet delivers a tight, full-bodied punch that will capture the low-end extension of your instrument with enough clarity to cut through a dense mix. Its custom transformer imparts a thickness and character that enhances the tone you’ve worked years crafting simply by hitting record.
Innovation Through Heritage
The engineers at Soyuz spent years honing their craft studying, servicing, and working on the classics. They poured all of their knowledge into creating the Bomblet’s custom S23 capsule– a special capsule with a forgiving yet detailed top end, a thick low-end, and a pronounced mid-range. The Bomblet’s distinct top-end is what truly makes it special with its ability to flatter high frequencies instead of exaggerating them.
As with all Soyuz microphones, the Bomblet is completely handmade: bodies and capsules are manually machined and transformers are wound in-house in Tula, Russia. The Bomblet’s unique character comes from the triple back plate system which is unlike any other capsule in production.
