Wow. Quite blown away by the sound. I compared [Bomblet and SU-017] to my holy grail 47 and 251, and they happily live on the same city block, which is a tiny snobby elitist block!!!!

The Workhorse

The Bomblet is an exceptionally easy microphone to use: it captures a full, balanced sound, regardless of placement and distance. An exceptionally forgiving sonic profile makes it an excellent choice for singers seeking a warm, colorful texture that is, nonetheless, true to the source. On louder and bass-heavy sources like electric guitar amplifiers, kick drums, and bass amplifiers, the Bomblet delivers a tight, full-bodied punch that captures the low-end extension of instruments with the clarity to cut through a dense mix. In addition, the proprietary Soyuz transformer imparts a thickness and character that enhances and complements sources that generally demand accuracy: cello, upright bass, bass clarinet, trombone and so forth.

Heritage of Innovation; Tradition of Excellence

The engineers at Soyuz have spent decades studying, servicing and building classic microphones; Soyuz’ machinists are the best in the world. 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 Bomblet’s custom S23 capsule. A different design than that of the 017 series, the S23 is Soyuz’ reimagining of Lomo’s Russian version of the CK12 capsule: with its thick low-end, pronounced mid-range, and detailed top-end – one that is forgiving and flatters high-frequency sources rather than exaggerating them – we believe that we have improved upon a classic.

Handcrafted

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.
