Lewitt LCT 940 Reference Class Tube/FET Condenser Microphone

Reference-class large diaphragm condenser microphone combinging the warmth and musical harmonics of tube mics with the clear and nuanced sound of FETs

MFR# LCT940

Product Description

The Lewitt LCT 940 unifies the specific characteristics of a premium large diaphragm FET condenser microphone and a top-notch tube microphone. With "Tube" you get warmth and musical harmonics, while "FET" gives you clear and nuanced sound. Blend tube and FET circuit at any ratio and find your ideal mix. The LCT 940 features a total of nine different polar patterns.

REMOTE CONTROL AND POWER SUPPLY IN ONE

There is a user interface on the remote control for a quick and accurate setup of pattern, pre-attenuation, and low-cut. Easily check or change the settings, even in complete darkness due to its illuminated user interface. The power supply unit is integrated.

BLEND TWO SOUND CHARACTERISTICS AT ANY RATIO

By using the AMPLIFICATION knob, you can mix the two distinct microphone circuits, FET and tube circuit at any ratio to find your sweet spot. This way you can dial in the ideal combination of warmth, punch, and clarity. Works brilliantly to adapt the LCT 940 to different voices.

MULTI-PATTERN DESIGN

Here are nine patterns in total. A polar pattern affects how much room sound you end up recording. But switching your polar pattern not only changes the directivity, it also alters the frequency response, resulting in a different sound. You can also control the proximity effect, and have it pronounced or reduced according to your application.

CUSTOM CAPSULE

The LCT 940 takes precision to a whole new level with an externally polarized dual-diaphragm one-inch capsule. Capture every nuance of your performance with a 3-micron gold-layered diaphragm for unparalleled performance. And with automatic attenuation, clipping history, and four pad settings, you can capture even the loudest, most dynamic performances with no fear.

VERSATILE FEATURES

Choose from nine selectable polar patterns to capture the perfect amount of ambience for any scenario. With options for omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid, figure-8 and a variety of hybrid patterns, the LCT 940 offers maximum versatility. Fine tune your tone at the source with four low-cut filter settings or toggle through different polar patterns to audition the perfect settings for every recording.

ACCESSORIES

The LCT 940 includes the LCT 40 SHxx shock mount to reduce unwanted noise from rumbling mic stands. Unlike traditional shock mounts, the LCT 40 SHxx features an open front, which enables you to place the microphone as close to the source as possible to take advantage of the proximity effect when recording amps, vocals and instruments.

The LCT 40 Wx windscreen protects the capsule from moisture when recording vocals, and prevents wind rumble when recording outdoors. The LCT 940 also comes with a sleek leather carrying case to protect it from exposure to dust and humidity. You’ll also receive the power supply remote control unit, a dedicated 11-pin audio cable to connect the LCT 940 to the remote control unit, and a power cable.

FEATURES:

  • Tube and FET microphone in one housing
  • Blend tube and FET circuit at any ratio
  • Studio centerpiece
  • 12AX7 tube
  • Remote control and power supply in one
  • Multi-pattern design

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!

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.

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.

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.
