format_quote The 013 TUBE small diaphragm condensers meld 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.
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 in a warm, pleasing way.
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.
