A soprano creates a warm and rich mellow sound coming from the middle part, the sharp and harsh frequencies come from the bell. The LCM80 has two mics at the right places and is precisely balanced. In this way you will get a perfect reproduction of the whole sound spectrum of the instrument. Both adjustable elements are mounted completely shock-free and have exchangeable clamps for different soprano- models.
The LCM80EW model, with two mics positioned above the instrument, produces an extra warm sound while it doesn't amplify the sharper sound coming from the bell.
