Matched stereo pair for instrument recordings with excellent sound

Extremely well-matched stereo pair of instrument condenser microphones for your acoustic guitar and drum recordings. 

Recording acoustic instruments made easy.

The LCT 040 MATCH delivers drum and acoustic guitar recordings with excellent sound. The true character of guitars, drums, and percussion is within the transients. The LCT 040 MATCH has excellent transient response to retain the natural musicality of your acoustic instruments. It captures the very essence of your performance. We tailored the small diaphragm capsule to provide you with a professionally refined sound, right from the moment you hit the "record" button; well-balanced and with a pleasant high-end.

Durable yet lightweight.

The LCT 040 MATCH is very durable yet lightweight thanks to its CNC'ed aluminum housing. Together with its space-saving form factor positioning and setup become easy tasks.

The LCT 040 MATCH is pristinely built like all LEWITT fare and purposely designed to be detailed and open. Its top end is all about clarity and detail, and is in no way harsh or tizzy.

If you like to record in true stereo, the bang-for-buck quality of the LCT 040s will be difficult to, erm, match. So, hats off to LEWITT for offering these high-end sounding original designs at prices affordable to everyone.

Due to the surprisingly small form factor of the LCT 040 MATCH, I was really blown away by the full and detail-rich sound. The stereo separation is really well balanced, especially when using them in an ORTF configuration.
