The Lewitt LCT 840 is a multi-pattern tube microphone that has outstandingly low self-noise. The LCT840 gives you that classic warm vintage sound and it's 1" condenser capsule offers you nuanced and authentic sound reproduction in the studio and even onstage. This mic also features 5 switchable polar patterns, 3 low-cut settings, and 3 pre-attenuations settings make the LCT 840 a highly versatile tool.

This is a B-Stock item.

The dual triode 12AX7 tube delivers a warm and comforting sound with smooth high frequencies while still preserving the ability to cut through the mix. Low self-noise and high dynamic range exemplify how the LCT 840 is vintage design brought into the present. The illumination of the user interface makes possible a quick and accurate setup of pattern, pre-attenuation and low-cut, so even in total darkness it is easy to check or change the settings on the remote power supply unit.
