...I have both...while the Lundahl-equipped version has some extended response on both top and bottom-end frequencies, if male vocals are your primary use, I'm not sure you will see a difference worthy of the additional expense...plus, you can always swap out the tranny at a later date with this (Lundahl-like) option, used by many of the ribbon mic-modders/builders:

...a fairly simple process (do some research on the web for more info)...BUT, I suspect you'll be pleased with the stock version...

...Cascade ribbon mics are already modded (upgraded wiring, removal of inner mesh basket and secondary headbasket mesh, and ribbon-tensioning QC)...IMHO, best ribbon mics for the money, unless you happen to be in Europe, in which case JP Gerard's version is also recommended:
