Lewitt LCT 450 Microphone Details

Lewitt LCT 450 Microphone steps up to the plate with the LCT 540â??s capsule and thus features a natural, authentic sound with first-class transient response due to the ultra-thin, gold-layered, low-mass, 1-inch diaphragm, while its cardioid polar pattern ensures effective rear sound rejection both onstage and in the studio. Lewitt LCT 450 Microphone comes with two-step switchable pre-attenuation for an ear-splitting maximum SPL of 173 dB at 20 dB of attenuation. Two low-cut settings help to reduce unwanted low-frequency noise like wind, footsteps or the like.

Clever features known from flagships like the LCT 640 or LCT 940 are also onboard, including automatic attenuation and clipping history â?" as well as, of course, the illuminated user interface for quick and easy handling in dark environments. All this, combined with the brilliant, clear and authentic sound that characterizes Lewitt's recording microphones, has been packed into their well-known LCT 240 housing to ensure that Lewitt LCT 450 Microphone isnâ??t too dominant as an onstage overhead; studio users, on the other hand, will appreciate the appealing look that reflects its professional inner workings.

In short, Lewitt LCT 450 Microphone has everything it needs and nothing more, so what you pay for is pure performance rather than gimmicks. The LCT 450 is LEWITTâ??s gateway to the world of large-membrane condenser microphones for everyone whoâ??s looking for the best performance at an affordable price!
