Lewitt LCT 140 AIR Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone

Instrument condenser microphone with two switchable sound characteristics - open and sparkling tone or a highly-realistic sound
MFR# AMS-LCT-140-AIR

Product Description

The Lewitt LCT 140 Air features a small diaphragm condenser capsule Lewitt have designed for professional instrument recording. Use the AIR and FLAT sound characteristics to record the source the way you want. Pre-attenuation pad and low-cut filter complete the package. With its superior transient response, the LCT 140 AIR provides high clarity for your recordings of guitar, drums, strings or other acoustic instruments. Its aluminum housing is robust and lightweight at the same time. The LCT 140 AIR has a cardioid characteristic and just sounds fantastic.

The low-cut filter minimizes structure-borne noise and low-frequency rumble. Use the pre-attenuation pad, if you want to record high SPL instruments.

The LCT 140 AIR is very durable yet lightweight thanks to its CNC'ed aluminum housing. Even difficult positioning becomes an easy task for you.

AIR and FLAT explained

AIR delivers an open, sparkling character. A great choice if you need record ready sound right from the start. You can immediately use and share those recordings without spending any time on post-production.

FLAT provides a linear frequency response for “as-it-is” reproduction of drums, strings, acoustic guitars, and choirs. It's a great choice if you aim for highly realistic sonic images. Having both options at hand makes the LCT 140 AIR a highly versatile recording tool.

The best budget mic for strings, plucked or bowed, hands down.

By Yuri P on May 31, 2021

Great mics that fill the need of several applications in the studio. Definitely found a home in our Go-To mic drawer!

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
Martin C.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
