Lauten Audio Clarion FC-357 Microphone


Multi-Pattern large-diaphragm FET condenser microphone featuring a pleasing combination of classic warmth with modern clarity! Includes shock mount, wood box, and hard case. 


What we think:

The Clarion is an incredible and unique sounding microphone with a price tag that may surprise you. Its intuitive design eliminates the harsh characteristics that sometimes emerge when recording with a FET condenser, resulting in a smooth and crisp sound with some subtle warmth. We found that the Clarion performed exceptionally well on electric guitar as shown in our Flickinger reverb video, however it's studio uses are only limited by your imagination. The addition of the +10 dB and -10 dB add even more flexibility and control to your tracking sessions. The Clarion, along with the other microphones designed by Lauten Audio, is certain to be a reliable go-to microphone for any recording situation. 

Manufacturer Description:
