Lewitt Releases New LCT Series Microphone Models




Lewitt has announced the arrival of the LCT 040 MATCH and LCT 140 AIR in stores worldwide. Encompassing a broad range of small and large-diaphragm condenser and tube microphones, the Lewitt LCT series is designed for home studio owners wanting to record acoustic instruments.

The LCT 040 MATCH is available as a single pencil mic as well as a stereo pair package, while the LCT 140 AIR brings new levels of adaptability to instrument recordings.

Among the first end-users to test the new microphones was Martin Zöscher, better known as Zed Marty from the same-titled YouTube production channel. Having trailed the LCT 040 MATCH in a stereo set-up and the LCT 140 AIR on its own with an acoustic guitar, he described himself as “blown away by the full and richly detailed sound,” adding that the “price to quality ratio is unbeatable.”

Debuting at just $99, the LCT 040 MATCH boasts a stripped-back, ergonomic design. For maximum positioning flexibility even in the most restricted spaces, it features a durable and lightweight CNC’ed aluminum housing. Inside, the custom-designed capsule is optimized with instant transient response for the natural qualities of acoustic instruments. The LCT 040 MATCH stereo pair is available for $189, benefiting from Lewitt’s matching process which analyses the microphones and couples those exhibiting identical behavior.

The new LCT 140 AIR offers off-axis sound suppression, pre-attenuation and low-cut filter, the SOUND toggle allows users to switch between AIR and FLAT. While the former delivers an open character, the latter provides a linear frequency response.

“We are delighted that the LCT 040 MATCH and LCT 140 AIR have been greeted with so much interest and excitement,” says Roman Perschon, founder and CEO of Lewitt. “We firmly believed that the time was right to bring our design ethos and technology to a much broader audience. I’m very happy to see that our customers agree! More people than ever before are now experiencing Lewitt, and I can’t wait to hear the results.”
