Lauten Audio Series LA-320 Cardioid Tube Condenser Microphone

Professional large diaphragm, vacuum tube, studio condenser vocal microphone with case, power supply and shock mount

MFR# LA320002

Product Description

The Lauten Audio Series Black LA-320 large diaphragm vacuum tube condenser microphone is a professional and versatile microphone for studio and vocal recording. This microphone features a 1″ gold-sputtered diaphragm with cardioid polar pattern, dual-triode vacuum tube, 120 Hz low-cut filter, 12 kHz high-cut filter, and transformer balanced output. The low-cut filter helps reduce boomy lows or low-end rumble; the high-pass filter helps to tame bright sources. These features help you to achieve excellent recordings regardless of your skill level.

 

You’ve been recording for a while, you’re starting to learn the sonic difference between different microphones, and now you’re ready to enter the world of vacuum tubes. It’s time for you to let the Series Black LA-320 lead the way into that vintage vacuum tube tone you’ve heard all about. Designed for the budding the recordists, the LA-320 is the best entry into professional-quality recordings with a tube microphone. We’ve made it easy to use and affordable for anyone to get serious about their sound.

Independent filters clean your tone

The high and low cut filters make solving common problems in home, basement or bedroom recording environments easy. The LA-320 features two independent filters located on the microphone and easy to engage via switches located on the front of the microphone. 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 filter and eliminate the problem. Use the high-cut to roll-off above 12k and tame a bright room or a bright source. What’s even cooler is you can use both filters at the same time resolving many problems before the recording hits your hard drive.

Incredible price performance ratio

Inside the LA-320 is a 1 inch pressure gradient true-condenser capsule and dual-triode vacuum tube inspired by those used in classic German microphones. Don’t be fooled by the affordability, the LA-320 features high quality components often found in much more expensive microphones. Lauren has used years of experience to create the best performance for the price of any large diaphragm vacuum tube microphone. Any budding engineer is sure to be pleased with the microphone.

Fully equipped and ready for recording

The LA-320 comes fully equipped to get you recording with great results fast. Each microphone includes a classic inspired spider shock mount to isolate the microphone from vibrations, a quality 5-pin tube microphone cable, custom, stable, dedicated power supply with a selectable mains voltage for use in all countries (100, 115v, 230v etc.), and a durable hard case to keep your microphone safe and clean when not in use.

Fucking A

By Noah P on June 7, 2021

I’m only recording myself in a home studio, and wanted a microphone I could rely on for my vocals, acoustic guitar, and other acoustic instruments. After listening to Sweetwater’s microphone shootout files and reading comments on the shootout on gearslutz.com, I decided to try the LA-320. In the past I’ve relied on an AKG 414, a Slate VM1, and a Shure SLM81.

After receiving the mic from Vintage King (thanks for a competitive price and fast shipping) and doing some testing, I’ve decided that I made the right choice. This mic has a very smooth response, just the right amount of proximity when used up close, and surprisingly low sibilance when used with a decent wind screen. I can best describe the sound as "rich, round, and smooth.” With a hint of cinnamon and vanilla. Highly recommended, and a great value for an all-around go-to microphone.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
