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, also available with Lundahl output transfomer.

The current version of the LRM-2b has a new shockmount design with stronger hardware. Shockmount included.

Differences with the (discontinued) LRM-1:

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.

Fantastic mic. As smooth as they come. It has a very round sound.

The low-end you get outside of a bass drum is one of a kind.

Get the stock transformer for a bit more mid-presence (works better with anything rock oriented) or Lundahl option for extra smoothness.
