Small-diaphragm condenser pair with interchangeable capsules, low-pass and high-pass filters, and transformer balanced output
The Lauten Audio Black LA-120 small diaphragm FET condenser microphone pair by Lauten Audio is a professional and versatile pair of microphones for instrument recording. At its core the LA-120 features a U.S. made ultra-low-noise JFET amplifier, interchangeable 17mm pressure gradient condenser cardioid and omni-directional capsules, 50 and 150Hz low-cut filters, 10 and 15 kHz high-cut filters, and a transformer balanced output. The low-cut filters help reduce boomy lows or low-end room rumble; the high-cut filters help tame bright rooms and sources. These features help you achieve excellent recordings regardless of your skill level.
Get ready to enter the world of professional studio instrument microphones. It’s time for you to let the Series Black LA-120 lead the way into that professional tone you’ve been looking for. Designed for the budding the recordist, the LA-120 is the best entry into professional quality recordings with a pair of professional studio instrument condenser microphones. We’ve built them for ease of use and affordable for anyone to get serious about their sound.
The high and low cut filters make solving common problems in home, basement or bedroom recording environments easy. The LA-120 features two independent filters located on the microphone with easy to engage switches. If the room or source is boomy, or you have low-end rumble from outside sources like road noise, furnace, air conditioner etc., turn on the low-cut filters and eliminate the problem. Want to get away from the “harsh” tone you hear about? Then use the high-cut filters to roll-off highs and tame your source. What’s even cooler is you can use both filters at the same time making these microphones extremely versatile and your solution to problems before the recording hits your hard drive.
Make no mistake, the LA-120’s are professional level, vintage inspired, instrument condenser microphones. They feature swappable 17 mm cardioid and omni-directional capsules, ultra-low-noise USA JFET amplifiers and transformer balanced outputs. They are also built with quality polypropylene capacitors and resistors, components often found in much more expensive microphones. Lauten have utilized their many years of experience to create the best performance for the price of any small diaphragm true-condenser FET microphones. Any budding engineer is sure to be pleased with their performance.
The LA-120’s come equipped as a pair, with two hard mount clips, an omni-directional and cardioid capsule for each mic, foam wind screens, and a wood style box.

So far so good! I have still have not tried the Omni capsules but in Cardiod these sound MUCH better than several similar mics I own in the same price range.
Have used these mics on a variety of things. Acoustic instruments and overheads these mics shine. Great build quality and have pads and low pass and high pass. An included Omni capsule is an excellent addition. Great deal. Love Lauten mics!
