Ultra-cool FET Condenser!

The Lauten Audio FC-357 Clarion FET condenser microphone makes a incredible addition to any studio!

Lauten Audio FC-357 Clarion Large-diaphragm, multi-pattern FET Condenser Microphone at a Glance:
    • Classic FET sound with a modern touch
    • Quality internal components
    • A stellar addition to any microphone locker

Classic FET sound with a modern touch
The FC-357 Clarion 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. Lauten Audio's engineers paid careful attention to remove any harsh character often found in modern FET condenser microphones, so what you get is a classic-sounding and totally versatile microphone.

A stellar addition to any microphone locker
The FC-357 Clarion has the features you need to achieve the sound you want. The one-of-a-kind three-position attenuation and gain switch offers you rocking recording options with no adverse distortion. The +10dB gain switch, which boosts the microphone's out, makes it less dependent on preamps to achieve excellent sound. Alternatively, leave the gain switch at its default, or use the -10dB pad to reduce the microphone's output and use the gain on your preamplifier to get more preamplifier character. The -10dB pad also makes this microphone amazing for recording completely loud sound sources.

The FC-357 Clarion also has three selectable polar pattern options: omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8. With three polar patterns you can tackle any recording technique. Each microphone also comes with a custom foam windscreen specifically designed for studio use. Whether you are trying to reduce plosives from an instruments or vocals, this custom windscreen is a valuable included accessory. Finally, the heavy-duty shock mount reduces external vibrations in any environment.

Quality internal components
Using a custom-designed 28.25mm dual diaphragm capsule, the FC-357 Clarion lets you capture sources completely accurately. The electronics include a low-noise FET and custom-wound output transformer that work together to provide you with an authentic and classic sound with a modern touch.

Cheryl... Around here, none of us wear power ties, and power lunches are few and far between. But when the Power Rangers are unavailable, and PowerBall just isn't bringing the money home like you hoped it would, it's great to remember that the powerful GearNuts.com store is here for all your power adapter needs!
