Lewitt MTP 840 DM Supercardioid Microphone


Adjust your tools – take control

Boost your signal by switching to Active Mode - for ear-catching realism and distortion-free sonic depth.


The supercardioid polar pattern guarantees high gain before feedback. Even with more than half of the wire-mesh cup covered, it will not lose any rear or side rejection.

Low-cut and gain settings

Low-cut filters eliminate unwanted low-frequency sounds, compensate the proximity effect and reduce structure-borne noise. The built-in three-position switchable amplifier, is specially adapted to the MTP 840 DM’s components, allowing lossless recording of even far-off sources.

Maximum reliability

The outside enclosure of wire-mesh cup and ring is made of spring steel, while the body consists of zinc die-cast parts. The inner enclosure is made of resilient but lightweight nylon enforced-reinforced ABS. This design ensures the best possible protection for the rough daily touring routines.

Lowest handling noise

LEWITT’s internal dual shock mount system achieves the most efficient handling noise elimination. Refined rubber suspensions provide the best possible dampening of unwanted structure-borne noise caused by hand-movement.
