Lewitt LCT 940 Reference Class Tube/FET Condenser Microphone

Reference-class Tube/FET microphone
MFR# AMS-LCT-940

Product Description

The Lewitt LCT 940 is a cutting-edge large diaphragm condenser microphone that combines the warm, rich sound of tube mics with the clear, detailed FET sound that Lewitt is renowned for. Choose between pure “TUBE” and “FET” settings or blend both sounds together to create the perfect sonic character for any recording.

TUBE VS FET

Equipped with an authentic dual triode 12AX7 tube, the LCT 940 delivers genuine tube tone with warm mids and smooth highs. But the LCT 940 isn’t just another vintage clone—minimal self-noise and an extended dynamic range make the LCT 940 the perfect blend of vintage and modern.

For a more precise, transparent sound, simply switch over to the FET setting. But the best part of the LCT 940 is that you don’t have to choose between the two—you can dial in the perfect blend of both by mixing the tube and FET settings at any ratio.

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.

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.
