Capture percussion, acoustic guitar and more! With swappable cardioid and omni capsules and 4 switchable high/low-cut filters, these mics are mega-versatile.

Instead of utilizing a transformer to add saturation its sound, the Lauten Audio LA-120 small-diaphragm condenser microphone is built around a low noise USA-made JFET which allows it to capture the transient dynamics and true character of a sound source with realism and authenticity.

Hear acoustic guitarist Alberto Ziliotto through a single Lauten LA-120 in this video:


The capsule of a microphone captures music's most meaningful moments and converts them into electricity with relentless results. The LA-120's 17mm capsule provides a modern, vibrant timbre without the harshness often found in affordable microphone designs. This makes it an ideal choice for use on drums, acoustic guitar and paino.


Polar patterns have a significant impact on the sound of a microphone because each selection determines what the microphone hears. 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 in a more open, natural or authentic way.


Immediate analog sound-shaping comes courtesy of the LA-120's two onboard filters. This allows you to shape sounds at the source, removing the need to change microphones to get the sound you want. Add warmth and weight to anemic percussion or remove harshness and boominess from read more an acoustic guitar at the flip of a switch.


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


The LA-120 was designed in Silicon Valley, CA by the Lauten Audio family.
