Manufacturer's Description from Lauten

You are ready for this

You’ve been recording for a while, you’re starting to learn the sonic difference between different microphones, and now you’re ready to enter the world of vacuum tubes. It’s time for you to let the Series Black LA-320 lead the way into that vintage vacuum tube tone you’ve heard all about. Designed for the budding the recordists, the LA-320 is the best entry into professional quality recordings with a tube 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-320 features two independent filters located on the microphone and easy to engage via switches located on the front of the microphone. 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. Use the high-cut to roll-off above 12k and tame a bright room or a bright source. What’s even cooler is you can use both filters at the same time resolving many problems before the recording hits your hard drive.

Incredible price performance ratio

Inside the LA-320 is a 1 inch pressure gradient true condenser capsule and dual-triode vacuum tube inspired by those used in classic German microphones. Don’t be fooled by the affordability, the LA-320 features high-quality components often found in much more expensive microphones. We have used our years of experience to create the best performance for the price of any large diaphragm vacuum tube microphone. Any budding engineer is sure to be pleased with the microphone.

Fully equipped and ready for recording

The LA-320 comes fully equipped to get you recording with great results fast. Each microphone includes a classic inspired spider shock mount to isolate the microphone from vibrations, a quality 5-pin tube microphone cable, custom, stable, dedicated power supply with a selectable mains voltage for use in all countries (100, 115v, 230v etc.), and a durable hard case to keep your microphone safe and clean when not in use.

Lauten Audio

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.
