Tube // FET and everything in between The LCT 940 unifies the specific characteristics of a premium large-diaphragm FET condenser microphone and a top-notch tube microphone. "Tube" delivers warmth and musical harmonics, while "FET" stands for the clear and nuanced sound for which LEWITT condenser microphones are renowned for. Use the Tube // FET blend control - find your ideal mix. The LCT 940 features a total of nine different polar patterns – five "standard" polar patterns omnidirectional, cardioid, figure-8, wide- and supercardioid and four additional intermediate patterns. The illuminated display of the remote control unit guarantees easy handling in dark environments. Automatic Attenuation, Clipping History, four pre-attenuation and low-cut filter settings round off the feature list of this outstanding microphone. The LCT 940 opens up a new dimension of sound reproduction and its unrivaled set of qualities makes this microphone a must-have for recording professionals who strive for nothing less than perfection.
