The LS-308 is a noise rejecting, high-dynamic range microphone to be used as a problem solver in challenging recording situations when isolation is needed but difficult to achieve.

Designed for use in studio, broadcast, and sound reinforcement environments when sources are in very close proximity and isolation of those sources is difficult; for example, a small commentators booth with multiple commentators, or rejecting drums from a guitar amp on a tight stage. The LS-308 is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone featuring 270 degrees of off-axis frequency rejection combined with ultra-high dynamic range. Constructed from high-quality components and outfitted with frequency shaping high and low-cut filters, the LS-308 offers excellent handling capabilities. It includes two different mounting options, a foam windscreen, and a road case.

Features
• When off-axis rejection is important
• Highly dynamic instruments in noisy environments
• Close micing drums & guitars both studio and on-stage
• Close-quarter broadcast booths when off-axis rejection is essential
• Podcast and Voice-overs when noise rejection is essential
• 270 degrees of off-axis sound rejection
• 120dB (135dB total) of dynamic range (no pad needed)
• Independent 2-stage low & high-cut filters
• Internally shock mounted pressure gradient condenser elements
• Swing-arm mount with 135 degrees of movement (removable)
• Includes threaded hard mount, windscreen, carrying case

270 DEGREES OF REJECTION
The LS-308 offers 270 degrees of side and rear frequency rejection reducing nearby sound by up to 25dB. The rejection is achieved with Lauten Audios' unique dual, large-diaphragm pressure gradient transducer element in combination with its specially designed circuit.

CLOSE PROXIMITY ENVIRONMENTS
The LS-308 is intended for use in environments where there are multiple sources in close proximity, for example, small live rooms with multiple musicians playing, close-quarter broadcast commentary, or when the rejection of other instruments or crowds live on-stage or in sound reinforcement is desired.

NO ATTENUATOR NEEDED
The LS-308 does not require pre-attenuation and can handle 135dB+ of SPL. The circuit also allows for an ultra-wide 120db of dynamic range. These features give engineers the ability to capture high dynamic sources and in noisy environments.

INDEPENDENT FILTERS
The Independent, multi-stage, high and low-cut filters help engineers balance recordings at the microphone and aid in successfully capturing the performance reducing the need for mixing. The 2-stage low-cut aids in reducing low-end rumble, muddiness, and proximity effect. The 2-stage high-cut helps tame bright instruments and high frequencies.

Accessories
- Swing-arm mount with 135 degrees of movement (removable)
- Hard mount
- Foam windscreen
- Hard case that fits all accessories

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 flat rate up to $2,000 of current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years.
  • BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
  • WOODWINDS: 4% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
