Lewitt LCT 940 overview

  • 1Description

The LCT 940 Premium Large-Diaphragm FET Condenser and Tube Microphone from Lewitt combines the specific characteristics of a premium large-diaphragm FET condenser microphone and tube microphone in one housing. You can choose between the two main settings ("FET" and "Tube") or mix and merge the characteristics of the two, providing various creative possibilities for artists and producers. The LCT 940 also features a total of nine different polar patterns: cardioid, omnidirectional, figure-8, wide-cardioid, super-cardioid, and four additional intermediate patterns. The microphone's PSU (power supply unit) offers four levels of attenuation and four switchable high-pass filters, indicators, and push buttons for noiseless handling. Additional attributes are automatic attenuation and clipping history. The microphone and the PSU are connected via an included 26' 11-pin XLR cable. 

Combines the sonic characteristics of a tube and a FET mic in one single housing for maximum creative freedom and an undisturbed workflow
Ability to continuously switch and merge the tube and FET sound via rotating potentiometer
1-inch externally biased, dual-system capsule with ultra-thin gold-layered low-mass diaphragms combined with a dual triode tube ensures accurate transient response while providing smooth, warm and airy tube sound
Nine consistent directional characteristics: cardioid, omnidirectional, figure-8, broad cardioid, supercardioid, and four intermediate patterns for maximum flexibility in a wide variety of recording applications
Superior dynamic range of 128 dBA (Tube) / 135 dBA (FET) and exceptionally low self-noise of 12 dBA (Tube) / 8 dBA (FET) for ear-catching realism and distortion-free sonic depth
4-position switchable pre-attenuation pad (0 dB, 6 dB, 12 dB and 18 dB) for handling extremely high sound pressure levels and 4-position high-pass filter
Illuminated user interface and jog dials for easy handling, even in dark environments
Noiseless pushbuttons for quick and easy attenuation and HPF selection
Unique features like clipping history and automatic attenuation provide error-free studio recording and ease of use
Solid die-cast metal body with an oversized tube inspection window coated for protection against electromagnetic interference

    Lewitt LCT 940 reviews

    LCT 940 Premium Large-Diaphragm FET Condenser and Tube Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have In Mic Arsenal By far one of the coolest mics on the market. I was skeptical at first. I used it, and instantly become fan. I can use this mic on literally anything! My clients love the glow of the tube in the mic. It creates a great vibe. You also have full twin topology. If you don't like the way it sounds with the tube engaged, switch it over to FET. Still not satisfied, you can blend between the Tube and FET. It also has an auto-pad feature. This feature alone is AWESOME! It helps out with those clients who do not have mic discipline or just bob from side to side, or just get way too into the song. Great sounding mic, with all the bells and whistles you can imagine! Very flexible and versatile! Must have in your microphone arsenal.
