Future Music Magazine

“The LCT 240 PRO appears to have made the LCT 240 more affordable by removing the least essential parts (onboard controls), leaving a quality condenser mic for the studio and beyond. It performs well in the jack- of-all-trades role and easily holds its own against the models I’ve tried in this price range; the build quality could be the clincher.”

Recording Magazine

“Ultimately the LCT 240 PRO is a great first condenser mic for beginners and project studios, as well as a nice utility mic well suited to most tasks. That would be true at a much higher price than it costs. Now there really is a LEWITT mic for everyone!”

Guitar Interactive Magazine

“In use, the LCT 240 PRO does what it’s intended to do – it seems to work on just about everything with a slightly bright but smooth sound.”

User review

“The LCT 240 PRO is a fantastic entry level microphone. It works well on many sources, excels on acoustic guitar and is built as microphones costing several times the price.”

Andrea Rocca on Gearslutz

User review

“I love this mic! I was looking to expand my home studio considering I had been producing music for seven years. I was recommended by an engineer to purchase this mic considering the tone of my voice. I produced and recorded a song hook and posted it on my SoundCloud and people have fallen in love! Mind you I have never recorded myself before and this takes me one step closer to my dream to inspire with my music! I am thoroughly satisfied! You'll love this microphone!”

James Shumpert on B&H

User review

“As a drum overhead and a guitar cab mic, it's absolutely brilliant. There's some great clarity, and it doesn't feel brittle. I'd be more than happy to use it in a professional context. Overall, I think the LCT 240 PRO is well worth a purchase. I'm really impressed by how versatile it is considering its price tag.”

Upgrade your mic ...

... with shock mount and magnetic pop filter.

A shock mount reduces structure-borne noise to a minimum and a magnetic pop-filter that integrates perfectly with the design of the microphone. This magnetic pop filter will efficiently reduce pops and hisses without covering 2/3rds of your vocal artist's face. The most subtle and convenient way of getting the most out of every single recording.
