What's in the box

Packshot of LCT 340

"While I was setting up the Lewitt I found myself getting lost in playing the acoustic guitar, experimenting with the mic, its placement, and the guitar dynamics. In fact, my left brain had to sort of step in, take over and get back to business because I found myself getting carried away with ideas. I think whenever a piece of gear starts inspiring your creativity and gives a little spark, it is always a good thing."
