    Product Description

    The LA-120 are a versatile pair of pencil condenser mics with professional grade features. Independent High and Low cut filters, switchable omni and cardioid capsules and a JFET transistor with transformer balanced output make them a great choice for home recording and studio work.

    With so many tricks under the hood, they’re a real workhorse, grab them out of the box, plug in and go. Each of the filters are independently controlled, so you can set the mics for the room. At home in the hands of a studio engineer or the bedroom producer the LA-120 mics are endlessly versatile.

    The History of Lauten Audio
    Early in the 21st Century Brian Loudenslager saw an opportunity. A pedal company that would bring a unique sound to a range of contemporary microphones built with utility and versatility in mind.
    He teamed up with Grammy nominated engineer and producer Mike Terry (The Eagles, Foo Fighters and Ash) and theoretical physicist Dr Charles Chen Ph.D.
    Their goal was a work horse microphone that brought a unique sound to an already saturated market. The Horizon was born and since then Lauten Audio have gone on to produce a whole range of mics that definitely met the original brief.

    Here’s what Lauten Audio say about the LA-120

    The Series Black LA-120 small diaphragm FET condenser microphone pair by Lauten Audio is a professional and versatile pair of microphones for instrument recording. At its core the LA-120 features a U.S. made ultra-low-noise JFET amplifier, interchangeable 17mm pressure gradient condenser cardioid and omni-directional capsules, 50 and 150Hz low-cut filters, 10 and 15kHz high-cut filters, and electronically balanced output. The low-cut filters help reduce boomy lows or low-end room rumble; the high-cut filters help tame bright rooms and sources. These features help you achieve excellent recordings regardless of your skill level.

    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 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 omni-directional 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, an omni-directional and cardioid capsule for each mic, foam wind screens, and a wood style box.
