Description

The LA-120 is a transformerless condenser microphone with world-class transparency and sonic flexibility. This uniquely configurable design is equipped with analog sound-shaping onboard and includes interchangeable Cardioid and Omni capsules for added flexibility. Unlike traditional microphone designs that utilize a transformer to introduce color and saturation, the LA-120 is built around a US-made JFET to capture the vibrance and character of a sound with unprecedented realism and authenticity.  

IDEAL FOR USE ON

  • Drum Overheads
  • Acoustic Guitar 
  • Piano
  • Stringed Instruments
  • Choir

MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE

The LA-120’s onboard sound-shaping eliminates the need for mic swaps and wasted time. Jump from crisp to smooth to ribbon-like sonics at the flip of a switch. Take the edge off harsh overheads, or warm up a bright piano. Add picking articulation to an acoustic guitar or perfectly capture a string quartet, all at the flip of a switch. 

CUSTOM CAPSULES

Lauten’s hand-tuned 17mm capsules provide transparent, lifelike sound with a musical blend of transient response and natural compression. This makes the LA-120 an ideal choice for use on drum overheads, percussion, acoustic guitar, and piano.  

OMNI & CARDIOID POLAR PATTERNS

Cardioid capsules will focus each microphone’s attention directly to where it is pointed, reducing the overall sound of a room in a recording. Omnidirectional capsules allow the sound of a room or other off-axis instrumentation to be captured naturally and with uncolored authenticity. 

TRANSFORMERLESS TRANSPARENCY

The LA-120 signal path is hand-populated with high-resolution, low-distortion polypropylene capacitors and resistors, built around a US-made JFET for articulate, uncolored, and high-impact performance.

HIGH SPL ASSISTANCE (OPTIONAL)

Lauten Audio designed the LA-120s to excel in numerous applications, but you may want to use them on something extra loud. The optional in-line pads allow the LA-120s dynamic range and depth to be fully utilized on high SPL sound sources like toms, snare drums, and more. 

DESIGNED & TESTED IN SILICON VALLEY, CA

Each LA-120 is lovingly designed and built to last a lifetime by the Lauten Audio family.
