Lewitt MTP 940 CM
Handheld Condenser Vocal Microphone for Stage & Studio


The large-diaphragm capsule of the Lewitt MTP 940 CM lets your voice be heard in infinite detail and authenticity, providing real studio performance onstage. It's design minimizes undesired feedback, breath, popping and handling noises, while every sound source is reproduced clearly and authentically. It boasts an impressive dynamic range and an unmatched low self-noise level, which makes it ideal for studio work. Its 3 switchable polar patterns ease recording of the most diverse of sources; from vocals to acoustic instruments and everything else that you record with a large-diaphragm studio mic. A 3-step low-cut filter can directly influence proximity effect, while its 3-position pre-attenuation delivers clean signals, even in high-SPL environments. Onboard switchable LEDs let you check settings easily - even in the dark, and its extremely stable and rugged construction can take even the roughest everyday touring rigors. The MTP 940 CM is the ideal choice for anyone who'd love their high-end studio mic in their hands while onstage, or the recreation of a live atmosphere in the studio.
