Lewitt AMS-MTP-840-DM
Handheld Dynamic Vocal Microphone for Stage & Studio


This dynamic performance microphone from Lewitt, the MTP 840 DM, delivers true studio performance onstage and is universally accessible thanks to switchable sensitivity and a multi-step high-pass filter. It's incredibly durable and optimally equipped for punishing tour conditions, and is uncompromising on sound. Its excellent transient response, refined electronics, and superior capsule design make it a unique tool for onstage applications. Its innovative circuitry design and top-quality components make for a maximum of dynamic range along with exceptionally low self-noise, and when in active mode, the frequency curve - specially tailored for vocal recording - offers exceptional sound quality. Its numerous useful features make it an incomparably versatile onstage and studio performer. Its 3-step high-pass filter has a direct influence on proximity effect, even enabling adaptation of the mic to an individual artist's requirements. The onboard 3-position switchable amplifier is specially adapted to its components, allows lossless recording of even far-off sources. Its LEDs, which can be turned off, make checking the mic's numerous settings easy and direct - even in the dark. It transports the artist's voice in a natural, powerful way, lending their voice the necessary presence without falsifying its individual character. Consistent directionality across the entire frequency spectrum gives maximum protection against feedback, and its flexibly-suspended capsule minimizes structure-borne noise.

Ideal applications include lead & background vocals as well as other demanding live and studio situations.
