San Jose, CA (August 4, 2016)—Lauten Audio has added two new microphones to “Series Black,” its entry-level product line: the LA-220, a solid-state large diaphragm condenser studio vocal microphone (at an estimated $249 street); and the LA-120, a pair of solid-state small diaphragm FET instrument condensers (at an estimated $349 street). The new models are slated to begin shipping this month.
The LA-220 features an American-made ultra-low-noise JFET amplifier, 1-inch pressure gradient large diaphragm, and a true-condenser capsule with cardioid polar pattern. It is equipped with 120 Hz low-cut and 12 kHz high-cut filters, a transformer balanced output, and a spider-style shock mount.
The LA-120 package comes as a pair, featuring interchangeable 17mm pressure gradient condenser cardioid and omnidirectional capsules, America-made ultra-low-noise JFET amplifiers, 50 and 150 Hz low-cut and 10 and 15 kHz high-cut filters and a transformer balanced output. Both mics ship in a wooden box and hard mounts enclosed.
"Our unique high and low cut filters offered on these mics have already garnered rave reviews from users and professional reviewers,” explains Brian Loudenslager, founder of Lauten Audio, on the filter choices. “These features take into consideration common problems in home, basement or bedroom recording environments and make achieving great recording results easy for anyone." Both microphones feature two independent filters located on the microphone with easy to engage switches.
Lauten Audio is located in San Jose, California.
