First, Vintage King is the best! Jeff stood behind me when I had problems (and Lewitt & their distributors would not help), and VK accepted the returns of the mics for full refund without question. I will not hesitate to buy again from VK, and heartily recommend them. In terms of Lewitt mics:
I REALLY wanted to like these microphones; the 340TT tom mics were recommended by a couple of sources that I trust. They sound great on toms. However, these mics are truly not road-ready. For the rigours of touring work. First, 2 of the 3 clips for the mics were stripped on arrival. Worse, the rim clamps are poorly designed. I own 3 high-end drum sets (including a brand new Sonor Pro-Lite kit) and my drummer (who has toured the world with several big name acts) owns more than a dozen vintage and modern kits. 3 of us — me, him, and an experienced FOH engineer — tried to find a way to use the clamps and clips and could not get them to stay out of the way enough on mounted or floor toms. When I tried to lock them into the tightest position they actually distorted the shells de-tuned the drums. Lewitt have a straight sliding adjustment, and a curved one would likely be all that is needed, but that’s not what you get. We had to use Sennheisers on the first night, and stands with the 340s on the remaining nights, which defeats the purpose of having rim clamps. Plus, you cannot even fit the mic on the clip and bracket in the bag, so plan to waste time taking this apart and putting it back together each time you use it.
For the record, I sent all of my Lewitt mics back to VK, and purchased from Jeff and VK a kit including some sE V-beat microphones. Intelligent design and implementation that is truly road-ready (and has none of the problems identified above).
I have only recently discovered Lewitt mics. All I can say is they are a great value and the quality and sound is very impressive. I will continue to use them and will try other models as the need arises. Glad I made the choice to try them out!
Great mics. Every bit as good as a 421 in my opinion. For like... half the price.
