Bastian Wiedenhaupt of German Gear Nerds recently put both the LCT 240 PRO and the LCT 440 PURE through their paces and came to the following conclusion:
“The LCT 240 PRO and its big brother, the LCT 440 PURE, make a very professional impression and are extremely well made. The mic clamps are manufactured from flexible, high-quality plastic and keep the microphones where they’re supposed to be, so they’re absolutely road-ready.
And where other makers tend to scrimp in terms of accessories, I think LEWITT’s done the right thing: each of these two models comes with a small microphone bag along with a foam windscreen and a wristband with logo, and the LCT 440 PURE also includes a shock mount and a magnetic pop filter.
The LCT 240 PRO and LCT 440 PURE are good to go for everything from the classic half stack to overheads – which speaks to how LEWITT’s developed these microphones as absolute all-rounders.
And as far as the sound is concerned, the tested models need fear no comparison with those made by traditional manufacturer. Their absolutely balanced sound is convincing on both acoustic guitar and very loud electric guitars: they don’t leave behind any annoying frequencies or color the sound in a negative way. And my test showed that they’re very good on vocals, too; the final product was truly convincing.
So whoever’s looking for an outstanding, balanced, all-around microphone is going to love the LCT 240 PRO and the LCT 440 PURE.”
