The Lauten Audio LA-120 V2 Microphones are a set of transformerless small diaphragm condenser microphones with world-class transparency and sonic flexibility, ideal for both the studio or while on stage!

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.

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.

Our 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.

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.

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.

We 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.

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

    I tried this Mics after listening to Greg Well's recommendation and never looked back. You can never go wrong with Lauten audio.
