Characteristic tube sound

The LCT 840 delivers warm and comforting sound with smooth high frequencies while still preserving the ability to cut through the mix using selected dual triode 12AX7 tubes. Low self-noise, high dynamic range, and an outstanding design exemplify how the LCT 840 is vintage design brought into the present.

Precision taken to a whole new level

The precision-engineered dual-diaphragm condenser capsule captures every nuance of your performance thanks to its 3-micron-thin, gold-layered, low-mass diaphragms. The microphone’s full metal body and brushed aluminum housing of the remote-control unit promise longevity and sturdiness. A military-grade protective case will securely protect your LCT 840 wherever you go.
