Manufacturer's Description from Lauten

You are ready for this

Get ready to enter the world of professional studio microphones. It’s time for you to let the Series Black LA-220 lead the way into that professional tone you’ve been looking for. Designed for the budding the recordist, the LA-220 is the best entry into professional quality recordings with a professional studio microphone. We’ve made it easy to 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-220 features two independent filters located on the microphone and easy to engage via switches located on the front. 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 filter and eliminate the problem. Want to get away from the “harsh” tone you hear about? Then use the high-cut to roll-off above 12k and tame your source. What’s even cooler is you can use both filters at the same time making this microphone extremely versatile and your solution to problems before the recording hits your hard drive.

Incredible price performance ratio

Make no mistake, the LA-220 is a professional-level condenser microphone. Inside is a large, 1-inch pressure gradient true-condenser capsule and ultra-low-noise USA JFET amplifier. It also contains high-quality polypropylene capacitors and resistor, components found in much more expensive microphones. We have utilized our many years of experience to create the best price to performance ratio of any large diaphragm FET microphone. Any engineer is sure to be pleased with their results.

Equipped and ready for recording

The LA-220 comes equipped with a spider shock mount to isolate the microphone from vibrations such as a tapping foot or outside rumble from street noise.

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.
