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.
-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.
THREE-WAY GAIN STAGING
MUCH MORE THAN JUST A PAD
FIGURE-8 captures sound equally from the front and back of the microphone for a more open, natural recording.
EACH SELECTION DETERMINES WHAT THE CLARION HEARS.
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.
