Lewitt LCT 940 FET/Tube Condenser Microphone

Experience the best of both solid-state and tube mic worlds with the powerhouse LCT 940. This large-diaphragm condenser includes a versatile power supply.

The LCT 940 combines a premium large-diaphragm FET condenser microphone and a top-notch tube microphone in a single housing. Choose between the two main settings of "TUBE" and "FET", or find your sweet spot in between -- they are mixable at any possible ratio.

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.

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

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.

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.
