Lewitt LCT 940
Anaheim, CA (February 2, 2012)—Lewitt Audio has unveiled two new tube microphones: the LCT 840 and LCT 940.
Equipped with a 1-inch capsule, the LCT 840 features five switchable polar patterns and is equipped with a specially coated, reportedly interference-resistant, plexiglass inspection window on the front side of the body, so the illuminated tube itself is fully exposed.
The LCT 940 shares these features with its little brother, but also boasts a total of nine different polar patterns (the five "standard" ones—omni-directional, cardioid, figure-8, wide—and super-cardioid) plus four additional intermediate patterns.
"When we set out to develop these two new models, we had today's professional users' needs and wants in mind, so our goals were clear-cut right from the beginning," says Roman Perschon, CEO of Lewitt. "We offer discerning users tube microphones that will set new standards in terms of design, sound quality, durability and ease of use."
