The Lewitt LCT 540 Condenser Microphone is a professional condenser microphone, well suited for project recording and sound reinforcement applications alike. The LCT 540 features a 1-inch diaphragm with a wide-frequency response, wide dynamic range and cardioid polar pattern.

Its high performance back-electret diaphragm yields high quality audio results and is immune to RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) from cell phones, WiFi and other electronic wireless devices. The LCT 540 features an attenuation pad switch with -10dB and -20dB settings. In addition, a low frequency roll-off switch eliminates low frequency noise below 40Hz and 300Hz. The LCT 540 is shipped in a foam-layered aluminum case with a windscreen, shock mount and leather storage bag.
