Lauten Audio LS-308 Large-diaphragm Side-address Condenser Microphone

The LS-308 is a problem solver – a microphone designed specifically for when isolation is needed, but difficult to achieve. This one-of-a-kind, side address condenser microphone hears like a laser, sounds like a ribbon, and is able to withstand a staggering 135dB of SPL without internal padding. Track electric guitars in front of a live drum kit, or the bottom of a snare drum with astonishing dynamics and isolation.

270 degrees of off-axis rejection allows you to confidently capture loud, impactful sounds live without the need to replace toms or retrack guitars due to bleed.

Capable of withstanding a staggering 135dB of SPL without internal padding, the LS-308 is nearly impossible to overload. Capture the loudest sound sources reserved for dynamic microphones with ease.

Creating a microphone with such strong off-axis rejection had a unique timbral side-effect -- a sound similar to a ribbon microphone, but without the fragility. This classic timbre can be further shaped with two analog filters that allow for immediate sound-shaping right at the source.

The LS-308 signal path is hand-populated with high resolution, low distortion polypropylene capacitors and resistors, a US made low-noise FET, and a custom wound output transformer. The result is a massively impactful sound with unmatched isolation and SPL handing.

Each LS-208 is lovingly designed and crafted to last a lifetime by the Lauten Audio family
