Precision Meets Warmth

The 013 TUBE and 013 FET small diaphragm condensers meld musical precision with transformer color. Their unparalleled transient response and precise yet warm detail make them the ideal mics for drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano, rooms, and any other applications where you want to capture top end clarity and midrange with detail.

Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Kurt Vile):
The [013 FET] mics sound great as overheads. Focused and clear. For me, it's a great snapshot of the kit from above. They remind me of 84s but they have bigger shoulders and are a little taller.

Focused and Smooth

The 013 Series are special microphones that have the best elements from classic SDC designs with a truly unique character of their own. They capture sound with precision while imparting a warm sonic signature that gives a musical glow to an accurate response. A smooth top end with focused details makes it easy to record complex instruments with big transients. The 013 Series microphones will capture all of the necessary information while giving a polish across the spectrum in a warm and pleasing way.

The 013 Series comes with a choice of two different circuits: fet and tube. Both models share identical capsules and form factors, all while having a similar sound. While both the FET and Tube models are similar, there are some subtle differences between the two. The 013 FET, with its FET circuit, captures transients with a faster response. The 013 TUBE has a smoother, round top-end perfect for sources where you want a natural sound with more coloration.

013 FET

The green badged 013 FET comes in a compact wood carrying case with a pair of 20dB pads and mounting clips making it easy to take on the road for a remote gig or a live show.

013 TUBE

The blue badged 013 TUBE comes as a stereo pair in a handcrafted oak suitcase that includes a stereo power supply with built-in 20dB pads, two custom 4-pin cables, and mounting clips.

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 013 Series’ custom S13 capsule– a special capsule with an honest and detailed top end, warm mid-range, and balanced low-end. The S13's smooth and precise top-end is what truly makes it special with its ability to accurately capture the source material.


As with all Soyuz microphones, the 013 series mics are completely handmade: bodies and capsules are manually machined and transformers are wound in-house in Tula, Russia.
