This mic really performs on vocals

Clear the air for big revealing sound. Built to give you classic sound under modern low-noise circumstances, the LT-381 Oceanus is a fantastic vocal mic. It's an original high-performance transformerless tube condenser microphone that produces full and detailed recordings.

Capture your source in great detail

A 31.25mm dual-diaphragm capsule captures minute details of the sound source. With the unique circuit topology and body design, you will notice increased clarity as well as subtle tube character. Being a transformerless mic, it also minimizes feedback and signal loss, while the unique signal path eliminates the harshness often associated with transformerless mics.

Great features for a range of sound characteristics

The LT-381 Oceanus features a variable polar pattern selector, allowing you to choose omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-8, as well as six intermediate positions. This variable pattern selector provides the ability to achieve many variations of sound characteristics. The rugged vintage-style external power supply houses the polar pattern selector and supplies consistent voltage to the microphone to achieve optimal performance. There are two features designed to reduce vibrations and noise. First, the capsule is internally shockmounted. Second, each microphone has a custom heavy-duty shockmount that securely holds the microphone and reduces external vibrations and noise.

Get the best of both modern and vintage-style construction

Internally, the LT-381 Oceanus is an innovative blend of classic and modern day components. This microphone features our new 31.25mm dual-diaphragm capsule that is designed to capture minute details. It also contains one of the most unique circuit topologies of any microphone on the market today. It utilizes a NOS military-grade pentode tube with a carefully selected operating point as the input and gain stage, and a transformerless tube output stage. Finally, our unique vacuum tube isolation chamber reduces component temperatures as well as noise.
