Compact sturdy enclosure - huge sound

The LCT 240's housing is a rugged black all-metal construction. Due to its compact size, the microphone weighs only 310 g/ 10.9 oz.

Review LCT 240

Warren Huart of Produce Like A Pro recorded an acoustic guitar, an electric guitar, an electric bass and vocals with the LCT 240. 

Summary: “It’s a pretty remarkably good sounding mic [...]. It reminds me on the LCT 550 [...] but it doesn’t have varying polar patterns - but 90 percent of the time I do not change the polar patterns of a mic. The LCT 240 got most what I gonna need and saves me a lot of EQ-ing!”
