Soyuz Microphones' description of the Soyuz Microphones 023 Bomblet Deluxe condenser microphone
023 BOMBLET Deluxe
The Bomblet Deluxe is a limited run of the 023 BOMBLET that comes in a handmade oak suitcase with a custom shockmount and 10 foot cable.
Featuring a distinct blend of color and clarity, the Soyuz 023 BOMBLET condenser is perfect for capturing everything from drums to amplifiers. With its forgiving top-end, smooth midrange, and thick lows, the Bomblet complements the aggressive tonalities of brighter instruments – and vocals – without sacrificing transients or detail.
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.
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 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.
