Circa 2 times thicker than our competitors. Our brass earpieces are built for great acoustics and durability.
The Lx Stethoscope’s spring is coated with a tough black nickel finish.
Lx STETHOSCOPE TUBING
Strong, thin profile, malleable, chemical and corrosive resistant tubing. Available custom length.
The hand-turned wooden bell is the heart of the Lx Stethoscope. Its development and abilities inspired the engineering of the Lx Stethoscope in its entirety.
We firmly believe that Dr. Loriaux’s diaphragm geometry has advanced the stethoscope market. Its design allows for easy disassembly, advanced durability, variable frequency pickup and phenomenal sound transfer. The brass diaphragm is electroless nickel coated for corrosion resistance.
BRASS SOUND CHAMBER
The silver-soldered brass junction piece is the conjoining sound chamber of the diaphragm and wooden bell. The geometry of its air column captures the sound pressure and enables the user to listen to both high and low frequencies. The hand-soldered joints are fused with a high concentration of silver and are very strong.
CARBON STEEL and STAINLESS STEEL DIAPHRAGM DISCS
The pre-installed diaphagm disc is a heat treated carbon steel disc. Its most common application is for knives and blades, often referred to as “the knife iron.” It is a spring steel and is harder than the provided additional stainless steel disc. It does very well at transferring higher frequencies of sound. The bonus stainless steel disc needs no maintenance and it will not corrode. It is the softer of the two discs and does slightly better at transferring lower frequencies.
