Born out of need.
When designing our first microphone we knew that the single greatest challenge would be to offer a capsule that was built to a high standard but priced in a range that every-day musicians and engineers could afford. We already knew where to find great microphone transformers, precision resistors, polystyrene, tantalum and WIMA film capacitors; but we came to realize that a quality microphone capsule that met our expectations and specifications simply wasn’t out there. We knew we would have to develop our own line of capsules.
The LK brand is the result of several years of research, a lifetime of listening, and a passion for great sound. Above all else, Lens Kondensator was born from the desire to give customers far more quality and value than what they are used to getting in an affordable microphone. Every LK capsule is made in the same small assembly house in a clean-room environment, and packaged in its own protective jewel case until the moment it is loaded into the microphone. Each capsule is tested as well as visually inspected for any surface imperfections or manufacturing defects. Every capsule is also made with all brass parts (no teflon or other cost saving material), and is carefully skinned from the same supply of high purity NOS Mylar (PET film). We are confident that you will be just as pleased with our microphone capsules as we are to offer them, and that they will give you a lifetime of great recordings and enjoyment.
