Hi folks,

I just released the LRM-2, an upgraded/updated version of the LRM-1.
It basically incorporates all the pointers and comments from LRM-1 users collected over the past 4 years. The main differences are:
  • Smaller size
  • Lighter weight
  • 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

It's also available with either the stock (Taiwanese) transfo and a Lundahl transfo. The LRM-2 with Lundahl option is aimed at Classical recording, while the stock transfo and its more pronouned midrange works great on all Rock/Pop/Reggae projects.

Main specs and features:
  • Frequency response: 30 to 18,000Hz +/- 3 dBs.
  • Polar pattern: Pure Figure-8.
  • Sensitivity: -57dB (0dB=1v/Pa) +/- 1 dB.
  • Impedance: 250 Ohms Nominal.
  • Max. SPL (1% THD @ 1000Hz ): 137dB.
  • Fitted with removable EU size metal stand thread adapter (default USA size without adapter).
  • Size: 175mm x 48mm (exc. Shockmount)
  • Weight: 580g.
  • Shipping/packed Weight: 1300g.

Final QC and assembly is still performed by yours truly in my workshop Belgium. Note that the LRM-1 will not be discontinued as long as there's a demand, and its lower price will probably appeal to many still.

It's available online through my website and there may be a few selected dealers in the near future involved... stay tuned.

Questions are welcome of course!
