Boasting self-noise below the threshold of human hearing, the Lewitt LCT 540 SUBZERO is a side-address true condenser microphone that offers highly detailed and clear studio-class sound on anything from vocals and acoustic instruments to drums and guitar cabs. It features a gold-sputtered 1" large-diaphragm capsule and high-end circuitry, so it can produce polished sonics, handle punishing SPLs before distorting, and serve extreme processing. Plus, it offers multiple pad and low-cut filter settings for optimizing the signal quality at the mic.

The cardioid polar pattern is most sensitive to sound directly in front of it while rejecting a significant amount of ambient noise behind the capsule. The mic imparts a lift in the treble range to enhance crispness and clarity without sounding brittle. As with all solid-state true condensers, the LCT 540 SUBZERO requires 48V phantom power and can be connected to an XLR input on your mixer, audio interface, or mic preamp. Supplied with a shockmount, foam windscreen, pop filter, and military-grade protective case, the LCT 540 SUBZERO is a capable mic package for the studio or stage.


A New Level of Detail

LEWITT's special approach towards electronics and capsule design makes the microphone better than human hearing. With the LCT 540 SUBZERO, LEWITT set a new benchmark in terms of capturing fine-grained details of your recording source. Record details of your voice and instruments that usually wouldn't even be audible. Make every detail count.


Fit for Extreme Processing

With its cutting-edge circuit and capsule design, the LCT 540 SUBZERO features an impressive dynamic range of 132 dB to capture everything from loud to subtle. You won't hear the self-noise of the mic even after heavily compressing the signal. Material recorded with the LCT 540 SUBZERO is fit for extreme processing.


Quieter than the Threshold of Human Hearing

Our hearing threshold is very frequency-dependent. It is less sensitive towards low and very high frequencies and most sensitive around 2 to 5 kHz. With LEWITT's circuit and capsule design, they were able to realize self-noise that'll stay below the threshold of hearing across the entire frequency spectrum.


1" True Condenser Capsule

The 1" true condenser capsule of the LCT 540 SUBZERO captures your instruments or vocals with an impressive amount of depth, detail, and clarity. Every single one of Lewitt's capsules is tested according to the highest quality standards. At Lewitt, they completely measure every single microphone before it gets to you, to ensure that you can make every detail of your sound count.


Switchable Settings

The mic offers two low-cut filter selections (80 or 160 Hz) to eliminate unwanted low-frequency sounds, compensate for proximity effect, and reduce structure-borne noise. Use the -6 or -12 dB pad to avoid clipping when recording very loud sound sources.
