The LCT 1040 Tube/FET condenser microphone system from Lewitt Audio Microphones offers four all-analog tube characteristics and a crystal-clear FET circuit to create the ideal sound. You can dial in the FET circuit via the Circuit control whenever you're looking for that extra punch or precision for your voice or instrument.

Set the directivity with the seamless polar pattern control of the LCT 1040, giving you exactly what you were looking for. Additionally, you can also freely define the front of the mic depending on your recording scenario using the Default/Reverse flip switch. To prepare you for all possible scenarios, the LCT 1040 features two XLR outputs with Neutrik connectors.

Tweak All Settings From Your Sweet Spot via the Remote Control

Set up the LCT 1040 in the recording room where the artist performs. Detach the remote control from the PSU and connect them via your standard 3-pin XLR cable. Now you can fine-tune your sound from your sweet spot via the remote control, ensuring a smooth-running session.

Dual-layer Magnetic Pop Filter

The high-performance magnetic pop filter of the LCT 1040 protects your capsule from unwanted plosives and moisture. Its double-layer design perfectly integrates with the shockmount and ensures clean recordings with any vocalist or genre.
