Studio technology onstage

Handheld performance microphone with a 1″ studio condenser capsule. 


The best of both worlds

The MTP 740 CM employs a large-diaphragm studio capsule to provide natural and authentic sound. Its ultra-thin, gold-layered 1″ diaphragm delivers first-class transient response. Unique suspension technology provides a high degree of shock resistance and effectively eliminates structure-borne noise.

True 1" condenser capsule

Using the same technology as our top of the line studio microphones the MTP 740 CM boasts a huge dynamic range. Its high sensitivity and exceptionally low self-noise come thanks to our patented Direct Coupling circuit design.

Like all mics from MTP series the MTP 740 CM has an amazingly consistent polar pattern across its entire frequency spectrum. Everything below the LEWITT ring can be gripped by the artist's hand without causing the FOH engineer to lift even a single finger. The outstanding rear rejection of -25 dB guarantees super-high gain before feedback.

Let there be light - illuminated interface

All settings from low-cut to pre-attenuation are easily readable in dark environments thanks to the illuminated user interface. This feature comes in handy especially for line checks, helping you avoid unnecessary fumbling in the dark.

Maximum ruggedness for rough daily touring routines

The structure-in-structure architecture provides the basis for the MTP series' ruggedness. The outside enclosure of wire-mesh cup and ring is made of sturdy spring steel while the body consists of durable zinc die cast parts. The inner enclosure is made of resilient but lightweight nylon reinforced ABS. This design ensures the best possible protection for rough daily touring routines.

Lowest handling noise

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

MTP 740 CM

Studio technology on stage

The MTP 740 CM uses a true 1″ condenser capsule - the same technology used in our studio microphones. This results in natural, authentic sound with first-class transient response. The MTP 740 CM is built for vocal performance both onstage and in the studio. As a straightforward vocal performance microphone it features a cardioid polar pattern that ensures effective rear sound rejection in both live and studio.Thanks to our advanced suspension technology, in which the capsule and electronics are fully rubber-cushioned, the MTP 740 CM is shock-resistant and offers highly effective structure-borne noise elimination. With its two step pre-attenuation and switchable low-cut setting it can be adjusted to a variety of vocal requirements and recording situations. In short: the MTP 740 CM has everything onboard for the most demanding live and studio vocal performances and recordings. Pure large-diaphragm studio condenser sound and features onstage - onstage feeling in the studio!
