Lauten Audio Announces Snare Mic

 Lauten Audio has announced its release of Snare Mic which they describe as a purpose-built FET condenser microphone designed explicitly for use on snare drums. A spokesperson told us, "At only 4.2" in size, Snare Mic is optimized for use in small spaces while delivering the impact, nuance, and distinct characteristics of a snare drum without the drawbacks of traditional solutions. Snare Mic's carefully tuned frequency response, ultra-high dynamic range, and rejection of  up to 28dB of off-axis sounds ensure professional, mix-ready results straight out of the box."

With its release of Snare Mic, Lauten Audio has launched SNARE – a four-part documentary series that reconnects legendary drummers with the snare drums they chose to define what would become the future of music. Episode 1 features Brad Wilk [Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Black Sabbath] and 10x Grammy-winning Engineer Darrell Thorp on location at Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters' Studio 606.

Pricing and Availability:

Snare Mic is available now for $398 US Street / MSRP $549.
