LIFELIKE TRANSPARENCY & UNMATCHED VERSATILITY
The LA-120 Mk2 is a transformerless condenser microphone with world-class transparency and sonic flexibility. This uniquely configurable design is equipped with sound-shaping switches 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.
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 darker, smooth 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.
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. Close-up placement will accentuate bass frequencies.
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.
V2 - What's New?
Each Lauten Series Black microphone maintains its critically-acclaimed sound, through-hole circuitry, and custom-crafted Lauten Audio capsule, while adding several customer-requested functional and aesthetic improvements.
Lauten Series Black microphones now feature polished and engraved nickel head-baskets, while the LA-320 exterior has been completely redesigned — signaling its relationship to Lauten Audio’s flagship Eden LT-386 tube microphone. The smooth, silk-screened labeling found on the classic LA-120, LA-220, and LA-320 has been replaced by hand-filled lettering and now includes a hallmark Lauten Audio inset badge.
HIGH SPL ASSISTANCE (OPTIONAL)
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.
