This mic's ready for any session or live show

The Lewitt LCT 840 is loaded. With five polar patterns (omni, broad cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid, and figure-8), you can control the directivity of the mic's pickup with precision from a dial located on the remote power supply. The supply also gives you control over two pre-attenuation pads and two low-cut settings. The LCT 840's ready for any session or live show, and its eye-catching design, incorporating an uber-cool Plexiglas "tube-inspection" window, means it's lookin' good while it's sounding great.

A great-sounding, amazingly versatile workhorse mic

Lewitt's LCT 840 sounds great on just about any source: lead and background vocals, drum overheads, woodwinds, brass, piano, acoustic guitar. You name it. And thanks to its 10 and 20dB pads, it's also perfect for capturing raging guitar cabs and bombastic kick drums. The '840's five polar patterns even let you "focus" the mic on the source to reduce unwanted ambient sound. The Lewitt LCT 840 is so versatile, you're definitely going to want one (or two) of them in your mic locker.
