LEM ribbon microphone

This item has now been Sold

Here we have a very shiny bidirectional ribbon microphone from French manufacturer LEM. This design inside is quite close to the old Amperite ribbon mics with a long wide ribbon and the magnets to the rear. Judging from the technology this is likely to date from the 1930s or 1940s.

To improve output and signal-to-noise performance I have fitted a new ribbon, new, more powerful magnets and a custom Xaudia transformer. And of course fresh grill cloths, a good quality cable to XLR, and a thread adapter for standard 5/8″ mic stands.

It has a wonderfully rich warm tone, and looks great with bright chrome finish, with wear and tear that you might expect from an 80 year old microphone! Looks great and sounds great.
