Specialised Solution for Capturing the Full Sonic Spectrum of Snare Drums

The Snare Mic by Lauten Audio is a purpose-built microphone designed to capture the complete sonic range of snare drums. It offers a unique combination of features that make it an indispensable tool for both studio recording and live performances.

Single Mic, Complete Coverage

The Snare Mic is engineered to replace the traditional multi-mic setup, capturing both the top and bottom snares. Its unique design allows for proper positioning that can even pick up the bottom snares through the top head, offering a complete sonic picture of the drum.

Robust and Reliable

Constructed with a solid brass headframe and a mildew-resistant dust filter, the Snare Mic is resilient to stick hits, dust, and debris. This ensures longevity and consistent performance, whether you're on stage or in the studio.

Exceptional Off-Axis Rejection

The Snare Mic captures the true impact, body, and timbre of the snare drum while rejecting up to 28dB of off-axis sounds. This ensures that what you capture is the true essence of the snare drum, devoid of any unwanted noise.

Advanced Onboard Sound Shaping

Unlike traditional microphones that rely on post-production for sound shaping, the Snare Mic comes with advanced onboard sound-shaping capabilities. These settings affect the microphone’s entire sonic spectrum, allowing you to tailor the sound to your specific needs. This feature sets it apart from other microphones, as it provides a level of control usually reserved for post-production directly at the source.
