Soyuz Microphones SU-012

Pencil Condenser Microphone

The SU-012 is a transformerless FET pencil condenser microphone with interchangeable capsules. It was announced by Soyuz at NAMM 2014, but subsequently removed from the company’s production plans.

The microphones were to be handmade in Tula, Russia (home of Oktava).

The prototype brass capsule heads were machined in house. Cardioid, Hypercardioid, and Omnidirectional capsule heads were planned to be made available. The SU-012 head amplifier was designed to also host the large-diaphragm capsules from the SU-017, making it a “hybrid mic” like the 3-Zigma CHI.

The prototype microphone’s circuit is transformerless, and is believed to be similar to that of the Oktava MK-012.
