Warren about his experiences with LEWITT:
"LEWITT makes high quality, affordable condenser microphones that give everyone access to great recordings at a fraction of the cost and I use them for overheads and acoustic guitar everyday.
LEWITT mics have a crystal clear top end. I needed a large amount of matched condensers and the LEWITT ones sound fantastic. When using multiple mics on one source, such as a drum kit, they always sound consistent and detailed. I love the LCT 340 pencil condenser.
LEWITT mics happen to be affordable but I use them because they are great.”
Warren recorded a full song using ONLY the LCT 540 S, to show how the microphone sounds on a variety of applications.
The song is called “Nothing I Can Say” and Warren wrote it with Buck Johnson, Aerosmith’s keyboard player (before he was Aerosmith’s keyboard player!). In this version of the song we have Matt Starr (Mr. Big, Ace Frehley) on drums and Warren playing the rest of the tracks!
In this video, Warren did not only capture the acoustic guitar and scratch vocals, but he did a comparison between his vintage Neumann u47 and the LCT 440 PURE.
Warren Huart about the shooout: "We were both stunned at the results and plan on using the LCT 440 PURE for the rest of the vocals on this song. We both loved the sound. You're going to love this video! We had a lot of fun making it. Download the files so that you can hear our comparison of the U47 versus the Lewitt LCT 440 PURE."
