NoHype Audio products:

    Design: Our products are designed "In House" for studio and/or stage use. Built to last, designed to offer the best possible performance.
    Quality: We have established extensive QC throughout the manufacturing process. Each unit is partially assembled and individually tested in our Belgian workshop before final inspection and packing.
    Affordability: Clever design, purchasing and packaging yield attractive prices, however price concerns always come after high performance has been established and proven. We keep a short path between the supply chain and the end user resulting in much lower end user prices than anticipated.

    NOHYPE AUDIO STEREO BLUMLEIN KIT:

    Released in 2016, this kit allows the user to mount a pair of LRM-2s in vertical, coincident Blumlein or other stereo configurations including more typical horizontal setups. Note: the kit will not support two LRM-2's in a HORIZONTAL Blumlein config. The kit is designed for vertical Blumlein (or other coincident) use only.

  • Caution:
      The LRM-1's are too heavy for this kit. The kit is designed for the LRM-2, or similar weight microphones. Heavier microphones will eventually tilt the mic stand and most likely crash down below! The bar can take the weight but your mic stand probably won't.
  • Overview:
    • The kit includes a heavy duty stereo bar, three "knuckles" to mount the bar on a mic stand and to two microphones clamps (or shockmounts) and a coupler to secure two LRM-2 microphones together.
    • No microphones are included in the kit.
    • Thread compatible with US and EU thread clamps, shockmounts and mic stands: the mic clamp/shockmounts are 5/8" and the mic stand thread is 5/8" with an included 3/8" adapter.
  • Specifications:
    • All metal construction
    • Horizontal or Vertical positioning
    • Included 3/8" adapter for EU mic stands
    • 5/8" thread mounts for clamps and shockmounts
    • Stereo bar weight: 485g
    • Coupler weight: 35g
    • 40 cm long

Notes:

    On the frequency curves shown:

    We prefer to show 1/6th Octave curves in 1 dB/line resolution rather than 1 Octave, smoothed curves at lower resolution, as they show more information. These are not perfectly accurate curves but better, more telling curves will soon be published. Please keep it in mind when comparing with other mics data.

    On Billing:

    No VAT (EU sale tax) is due for customers located outside of the EU, or with a valid EU VAT N°. The VAT amount (at 21%) will be shown on the invoice when applicable.
