Lawson Microphones

Craftsmanship

We're proud to say Lawson products are not mass produced. Each Lawson mic is a unique work of art designed and built in the United States by me, Gayle, and a few other passionate and dedicated artisans. Our expertise and passion can be seen in every Lawson mic.

ELECTRONICS

A lot of personal time and consideration go into carefully choosing each Lawson component. We are committed to making sure all components in Lawson products, seen and unseen, are of the highest quality, such as:

• Proprietary low-loss tube sockets
• Hand-selected low noise vacuum tubes
• Custom Lundahl audio transformers
• 1% low noise metal film resistors
• High quality polypropylene capacitors
• Fine, flexible, multi-stranded oxygen free copper wire
• Low noise regulated power supply
• Gold plated XLR connectors

CAPSULES

The capsule is the heart of the microphone. The integrity of the capsule, more than any other element, determines the microphone’s character and quality as a transducer. All Lawson capsules are manufactured in our Nashville TN factory using our CNC machinery and hand-lapped by Gene Lawson himself. Each capsule is mounted on a proprietary internal shock mounting system that provides superior isolation by filtering out vibrations that may travel through the stand and mic cable and virtually eliminates the need for external shock mounting systems. Both the L47 and L251 capsules use 3-micron diaphragms for improved transients and extended high frequency response.

MADE IN THE USA

All Lawson mics (including the capsules) and mic pres are made in our factory in Nashville TN USA. Gene Lawson, Gayle Lawson, and a few dedicated and talented artisans handcraft each Lawson product with pride and passion. Solid brass is machined here, polished here, and plated here. Each printed circuit board is designed in-house, locally produced, then loaded, soldered, and tested in our factory. We are particularly proud of the L47 and L251 capsules which are manufactured onsite using our CNC machinery and hand-lapped by Gene Lawson himself.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Lawson uses the MLSSA acoustical measurement system to insure consistent performance from mic to mic. Each Lawson microphone and mic pre must meet stringent parameters. Each Lawson product is tested and autographed by the microphone guru himself, Gene Lawson.
