Light Ribbon Microphone. Designed to offer a classic, vintage ribbon mic response with contemporary specifications. With Optional Lundahl Transformer fitted.
New version of the LRM-2, released in Nov. 2018.
The LRM-2 was originally based on the LRM-1 but upgraded in several ways. The LRM-2b goes further with higher sensitivity (at the motor/before the transformer) and a symmetrical, pure Bidirectionnal/Figure-8 Polar Pattern while the overall tone has been retained - yet with an even flatter response.
Sold with soft padded protection bag.
The current version of the LRM-2b has a new shockmount design with stronger hardware. Shockmount included.
Free matching when buying pairs or more.
Differences with the LRM-1:
More solid, stable and less resonant one piece body
Integral (but removable) shockmount
Slightly different response, mainly flatter top end and more open low end
Differences with the (discontinued) LRM-2:
Redesigned motor with higher output and symmetrical (front=back) response.
Redesigned, sturdier shockmount.
Reduced manufacturing tolerances.
Flatter frequency response.
Lundahl or stock?
The Lundahl transformer option is typically chosen for more critical applications like classical recording. For Pop, Rock, Blues, Jazz... the stock transfo is usually preferred for its added midrange colour.
