Choose between modern clarity and classic warmth at the flip of a switch. Is something too bright? Flip a switch. Too dark? Flip a switch. The LA-220's onboard analog sound-shaping eliminates the need for mic swaps and downtime, which means you can focus on the main thing -- making music. Capture vocals with presence and punch or an electric guitar without any annoying high-end sizzle effortlessly.

The LA-220 utilizes the same capsule as its larger tube sibling, the LA-320. Unlike traditional capsule designs, Lauten's hand-tuned 32mm transducer naturally imparts gentle compression and balance to any sound source, making it ideal for use in an array of string, percussion, and vocal applications.

The LA-220 isn't flat -- it sounds like music. Lauten Audio believes read more every Lauten Audio microphone should stand on its own and make your life easier. Does the LA-220 sound great with a fancy signal chain? You bet! Does it need one to deliver powerful, present sound? Nope.

Hand-soldered with high resolution, low distortion polypropylene capacitors and resistors, a US-made ultra-low noise JFET, and a vintage-inspired output transformer. The result is a crisp, clear, mix-ready sound brimming with life.
