In Frankfurt, Germany, at the 2015 Prolight + Sound/Musikmesse trade show, Lauten Audio (Booth A60B in Hall 5.1) introduced the model LT-386 vacuum tube large-diaphragm condenser microphone ($3,999 list). Nicknamed Eden, the LT-386 features Lauten’s proprietary “multi-voicing” technology—a switch offering unique timbre settings, three polar patterns (cardioid, omnidirectional or figure-8), and an exclusive highpass filter.
Eden will be assembled in the U.S. and feature a modified version of Lauten Audio’s 31.25mm dual-diaphragm capsule, a custom wound output transformer, EF86 or equivalent pentode vacuum tube, Switchcraft connectors throughout, nickel plated head, a semi-permanent shock mount, and Lauten’s new surface finish.
Accessories include Lauten’s custom tube microphone cable with Switchcraft connectors, hard case and mount.
Lauten states that it will release final specifications prior to the product shipping which is estimated to be in June 2015.
