The Lauten Audio Clarion FC-357 blends classic and modern FET sound. It features a uniquely tuned frequency response that produces the smooth natural character found in classic FET condenser microphones with a touch of smooth modern airiness.
VINTAGE FET MODERN AIR
The Clarion is our unique take on a vintage FET condenser microphone modified with a touch of modern, top-end air. This custom-crafted studio workhorse captures vocals with faithful and present realism, kick drums with rich detailed impact, and bass guitar with astonishing depth and dimension. Like all Signature microphones, the Clarion is designed and crafted by the Lauten Audio family in Silicon Valley, CA.
THREE-WAY GAIN STAGING; MUCH MORE THAN JUST A PAD
-10dB is useful when more color and saturation from a high-end preamp is desired, or when paired with very loud sounds.
0dB sets the output of the Clarion to its default output gain selection.
+10dB is ideal for use with quiet sound sources and consumer-grade audio interfaces where more character from the microphone itself is desired.
A BETTER CLASSIC CAPSULE
Our custom designed 35mm capsule is hand-tuned to deliver vintage sound with just the right amount of air. This dual-diaphragm design captures sounds with depth, realism and exceptional transient response.
EACH SELECTION DETERMINES WHAT THE CLARION HEARS.
The Clarion signal path is populated with high resolution, low distortion polypropylene capacitors, a US-made low-noise FET, and a custom-wound output transformer that puts the finishing touches on every sound that passes through its copper windings. The result is a classic, open, mix-ready sound brimming with life.
After being hand-polished, the Clarion’s solid brass enclosure is hand finished with a durable, non-toxic ceramic coating and baked in an oven for curing before final assembly, burn-in, and testing.
