Great vocal mic

By JAAKKO

from Los Angeles, CA

I had the AKG 414XL2's as my main large diaphragm mic and I did back to back tests with the LCT540. For vocals I'd say the Lewitt blows the AKG out of the water. It's a lot more open and neutral sound. The AKG sounds super harsh on vocals when comparing. Haven't really used the Lewitt for other stuff yet. Still use the AKG as drum overheads, ac guitar, piano etc. They got more body than the Lewitt. Also compared with Rode K2. This one was much smoother.
