The 013 FET small-diaphragm condenser melds audio precision and transformer color into a
combination of unparalleled musicality. Best-in-class transient response and the ability to capture
precise detail make them ideal as drum overheads as well as for the recording of acoustic guitar,
piano, choral ensembles, strings, orchestras: in short, any application in which clarity is necessary
and character desired. This model includes two additional capsules, omni and hypercardiod.
The 013 Series combines the best elements of classic SDC designs with a unique character of its
own. Both tube and FET versions capture sound with precision while imparting a warm sonic
signature. The smooth top end and a midrange accuracy that is musical – never clinical – enable the
recording of complex, transient-rich instruments and sounds that span the frequency spectrum and
dynamic range (a -20db pad is included, correctly placed in the signal path between capsule and
electronics) in a warm, pleasing way.
The 013 FET model features the S13 capsule and a "pencil" style form factor. The 013 FET’s transistor circuit captures transients with a fast response. The engineers at Soyuz have spent decades studying, servicing and building classic microphones; this unique pool of knowledge, craft and skill – combined with the ears of numerous musicians, producers and audio engineers – has culminated in the creation of the 013 Series’ custom S13 capsule. The S13, with its detailed top end, warm mid-range, and balanced low-end possesses a
remarkable ability to capture source material with an accuracy that is always flattering, never harsh.
