Manufacturer's Description from Lauten

You are ready for serious instrument recording

Get ready to enter the world of professional studio instrument microphones. It’s time for you to let the Series Black LA-120 lead the way into that professional tone you’ve been looking for. Designed for the budding the recordist, the LA-120 is the best entry into professional quality recordings with a pair of professional studio instrument condenser microphones. We’ve built them for ease of use and affordable for anyone to get serious about their sound.

Independent filters clean your tone

The high and low cut filters make solving common problems in a home, basement, or bedroom recording environments easy. The LA-120 features two independent filters located on the microphone with easy to engage switches. If the room or source is boomy, or you have low-end rumble from outside sources like road noise, furnace, air conditioner etc., turn on the low-cut filters and eliminate the problem. Want to get away from the “harsh” tone you hear about? Then use the high-cut filters to roll-off highs and tame your source. What’s even cooler is you can use both filters at the same time making these microphones extremely versatile and your solution to problems before the recording hits your hard drive.

Incredible price performance ratio

Make no mistake, the LA-120’s are professional level, vintage inspired, instrument condenser microphones. They feature swappable 17mm cardioid and Omnidirectional capsules, ultra-low-noise USA JFET amplifiers, and balanced outputs. They are also built with quality polypropylene capacitors and resistors, components often found in much more expensive microphones. We have utilized our many years of experience to create the best performance for the price of any small-diaphragm true condenser FET microphones. Any budding engineer is sure to be pleased with their performance.

Equipped and ready for recording

The LA-120’s come equipped as a pair, with two hard mount clips, Omni-directional cardioid capsule for each mic, foam wind screens, and a wood style box.

About Manufacturer

Based in California, Lauten Audio was founded almost a decade ago by Brian Loudenslager, who saw a need for well thought-out mics with a unique character. Working in collaboration with Grammy nominated engineer and producer Mike Terry and theoretical physicist Dr. Charles Chen, Brian started working on the Horizon, which they wanted to be a unique-sounding work-horse studio microphone. Two years later the Horizon was introduced. 8 years later, Lauten Audio has become known as a leader in original-sounding microphones with unique timbre, and has garnered a loyal following. Lauten audio does not clone classic or vintage microphones, and instead starts with a clean slate to bring you a truly original product.
